NIOSH Chemical Carcinogen Policy. iii. Foreword. Occupational exposure to chemical carcinogens still presents risks to many in the work-force. The burden from exposure to occupational carcinogens on workers, their families, employers, and the nation is difficult to File Size: 2MB. Human disease - Human disease - Carcinogenic agents: Chemicals capable of causing cancer arise from a variety of sources. These include certain synthetic chemicals used in industry, some natural compounds formed during the curing and burning of tobacco, compounds formed during the cooking of meat, and chemicals present in certain plants and molds.
Benzene is a colorless, flammable liquid with a sweet odor. It evaporates quickly when exposed to air. Benzene is formed from natural processes, such as volcanoes and forest fires, but most exposure to benzene results from human activities. Benzene is among the 20 . Styrene CAS No. Reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen First listed in the Twelfth Report on Carcinogens () HC CH2 Carcinogenicity Styrene is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen based on limited evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in humans, suf-ficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in File Size: KB.

Sensitive procedures are needed to assess the risks of low-level carcinogen exposure, and to determine the relative dangers of exposure to different substances. Researchers are applying the powerful tools of molecular biology to study DNA damaged by carcinogens to understand the significance of this damage at the level of the individual and its implications for risk : R.
Colin Garner. Long Term Exposure: A probable human carcinogen. There is some evidence that it causes cancer of the nervous system, blood-forming organs, breast, lung, uterus, and blood or bone marrow in humans.
There is some evidence that it causes cancer of the nervous system, blood-forming organs, breast, lung, uterus, and blood or bone marrow in humans. Arsenic (As) is a human carcinogen and its exposure via drinking water is linked to skin cancer, hyperkeratosis, and pigmentation abnormalities.
Epidemiological studies indicate that inorganic arsenicals produce various skin lesions as well as skin, lung, bladder, liver, prostate, and renal cancer.
The Report on Carcinogens (RoC) is a congressionally mandated, science-based, public health document that identifies and discusses agents, substances, mixtures, or exposure circumstances (hereinafter referred to as "substances") that may pose a hazard to human health by virtue of their carcinogenicity.
For each listed substance, the report contains a substance profile which provides. Solar UV radiation and exposure to sunlamps and sunbeds - Exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation, sunlamps, or sunbeds is listed as a Human carcinogen exposure book human carcinogen." The Report cites data that indicate a causal relationship between exposure to solar radiation and melanoma and other skin cancers in humans, and that exposure to sunlamps or sunbeds is associated with melanoma.
A1 Confirmed human carcinogen. A2 Suspected human carcinogen. A3 Animal carcinogen. “Available evidence suggests that the agent is not likely to cause cancer in humans except under uncommon or unlikely routes or levels of exposure.” A4 Not classifiable as a human carcinogen.
Many factors influence whether a person exposed to a carcinogen will develop cancer, including the amount and duration of the exposure and the individual’s genetic background. Cancers caused by involuntary exposures to environmental carcinogens are most likely to occur in subgroups.
exposure to naphthalene and cancer in humans. EPA has classified naphthalene as a Group C, possible human carcinogen. Please Note: The main sources of information for this fact sheet are the EPA's Toxicological Review of Naphthalene (7) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry's (ATSDR's) Toxicological Profile for Naphthalene.

This book re-evaluates epidemiological and occupational health studies, experimental studies in animals and in vitro experiments relating to the toxicity of 27 metal and metalloid elements for which evidence of carcinogenicity has been carcinogenic risk is substantiated in relation to arsenic, beryllium, thorium, chromium, radioactive elements, probably lead, and some nickel Cited by: Volume of the IARC Monographs, A Review of Human Carcinogens, covers all agents previously classified by IARC as "carcinogenic to humans (Group 1)" and was developed by six separate Working Groups: Pharmaceuticals; Biological agents; Arsenic, Metals, Fibres, and Dusts; Radiation; Personal Habits and Indoor Combustions; Chemical Agents and.

Health Based Exposure Guidelines Committee. Chemical Exposure Guidelines. 9th ed. San Jose, CA: Santa Clara Center for Occupational Safety and Health, (). A comprehensive guide to assessing the health effects of environmental toxicants in nonoccupational settings Now in a second edition, Environmental Toxicants: Human Exposures and Their Health Effects continues to offer a unique perspective on a topic that is usually focused on exposure and effects in industrial settings.
Fully revised and expanded, it presents comprehensive, cutting-edge. chemicals known to be carcinogenic to humans. Recent estimates suggest that the disease burden due to air pollution is substantial. Exposure to ambient fine particles (PM ) was recently estimated to have contributed million premature deaths worldwide indue largely to cardiovascular disease, and deaths from lung cancer.
IARC has classified styrene as a Group 2B, possibly carcinogenic to humans. (12) Styrene oxide is a reactive metabolite of styrene and shows positive carcinogenic results in oral exposure bioassays.
Styrene oxide has been detected in workers exposed to styrene. IARC has classified this metabolite as a Group 2A, probable human carcinogen. (7,12).

NTP: Known to be a human carcinogen. Cancer classification (carcinogen classification) is a system by which hazardous substances are rated on their potential to cause cancer in humans. The classification is based mostly on animal studies and could change as scientific information improves. Several organizations determine cancer classifications.
suspected human carcinogens (the placing of a substance in Category 2 is based on evidence obtained from human and/or animal studies but which is not sufficiently convincing to place the substance in Category 1).

Substances, mixtures, and exposure circumstances in this list have been classified as Group 1 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC): The agent (mixture) is carcinogenic to humans. The exposure circumstance entails exposures that are carcinogenic to humans.This Volume F covers Chemical Agents and Related Occupations, specifically 4-Aminobiphenyl, Benzidine, Dyes Metabolized to Benzidine, 4,4'-Methylenebis(2-chloroaniline), 2-Naphthylamine, ortho-Toluidine, Auramine and Auramine Production, Magenta and Magenta Production, Benzo[a]pyrene, Coal Gasification, Occupational Exposures during Coal-tar.Accordingly, IARC has selected A Review of Human Carcinogens to be the topic for Volume It is hoped that this volume, by compiling the knowledge accumulated through several decades of cancer research, will stimulate cancer prevention activities worldwide, and will be a valued resource for future research to identify other agents suspected.
