Reproductive and developmental toxicity
Some pesticides are known to cause birth defects or interfere with normal development. Weight-of-the-evidence evaluations of this type of toxicity have been conducted by the State of California and by the U.S. EPA under its Toxics Release Inventory program.
Many pesticides that disrupt endocrine functions also cause reproductive and developmental harm, as well as other adverse effects.
California Proposition 65 List
Pesticides determined by the state of California to cause reproductive and developmental harm, e.g., birth defects, infertility, sterility and impairment of normal growth and development. A list of chemicals "known to the State to cause reproductive and developmental toxicity" is maintained by the State of California under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).
This is actually used as a pesticide. And is it considered a pesticide based on other criteria.
The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) provides two mechanisms for administratively listing chemicals which are known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity [Health and Safety Code Section 25249.8(b)]. One mechanism by which a chemical is listed is if a body considered to be authoritative by the state’s qualified experts has formally identified it as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. The following have been identified as authoritative bodies for purposes of the Act:
- the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA),
- the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC),
- the National Toxicology Program (NTP),
- the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
The criteria for listing chemicals through the authoritative bodies mechanism are set forth in Title 22, California Code of Regulations (22 CCR),Section 12306.
- ,and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
The Act also provides another mechanism for the administrative listing of a chemical, that is if a state or federal agency has formally required that the chemical be labeled or identified as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. The criteria for listing chemicals through this mechanism are set forth in 22 CCR, Section 12902.
Reproductive and developmental toxicity are known to cause birth defects or interfere with normal development. Weight-of-the-evidence evaluations of this type of toxicity have been conducted by the State of California and by the U.S. EPA under its Toxics Release Inventory program.

Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Bad Actor Pesticides
In order to identify a "most toxic" set of pesticides,Pesticide Action Network (PAN) and Californians for Pesticide Reform (CPR) created the term PAN Bad Actor pesticides. These pesticides are at least one of the following:
