Report on Carcinogens

by Rachel on July 13, 2010

On the regulation of chemicals, issues annual report on carcinogens National Toxicology Program (abbreviated ROC). This report was commissioned by Congress in 1978. In 1978, she has always been clear, the scientists found that both human and natural chemicals in foods, drugs and the environment for many cancers to blame.

The report, as well as scientific experts to review all relevant information provided by a potential toxin. The information contained in the report will be used by several organizations to regulate potential human carcinogens. Some organizations such as the U.S. Congress, federal and state agencies like the Agency for environmental protection and safety and public health, private corporations, unions and the general public. As you can imagine, these reports are reviewed by scientists and government officials alike.

Carcinogens in the report are classified as “known human carcinogens cause” or “reasonably anticipated to cancer and that many Americans are exposed.” The report defines substances as carcinogens known to man “that the compounds are directly linked to human cancer. Since actual human studies are not ethical for this determination, scientists rely on human epidemiology and / or carcinogenic studies tests on human tissue. When the report refers to a substance as “carcinogenic to humans reasonably probable” that scientists have evidence in humans and are seen to say / or evidence sufficient for carcinogenicity in experimental animals.

One of the most recent editions of the Report on Carcinogens (9th edition listed) more “ordinary” products. This report lists alcohol, tobacco and chewing tobacco, exposure to tobacco smoke and exhaust from diesel-powered cars as carcinogenic to humans. In addition, the sunlight and the use of UV lamps and tanning beds have also been classified as a carcinogen. There are several common substances in the reference year for future editions of the report (which may already be done). Beryllium and beryllium compounds have been proposed as “known human carcinogen.” These substances are used in mobile phones and fiber optics.

Again this year, at the time of writing is a town called chloramphenicol. The antibiotic has been prescribed frequently since 1950. A connection between leukemia and chloramphenicol has probably been shown in several cases, humans and animals. Estrogens are also on the list. They are used for oral contraceptives (eg “the pill”) and post-menopausal therapy. One virus that is linked to cancer of the cervix is likely to be placed on the list. The virus is called human papillomavirus (HPV). About 95% of all women diagnosed with cancer of the cervix were found positive for HPV testing.
