New Substances added to List of Carcinogens

[fa icon="calendar'] Dec 26, 2016 5:00:00 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim

Seven substances were added to list of carcinogens in the new HHS report. The Report on Carcinogens is a congressionally mandated report prepared for the HHS Secretary by NTP. The report identifies many different types of environmental factors, collectively called substances, including chemicals; infectious agents, such as viruses; physical agents, such as X–rays and ultraviolet radiation; mixtures of chemicals; and exposure scenarios in two categories — known to be a human carcinogen and reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. The seven new substances consist of five viruses, a chemical and a metallic element and have all been linked to cancer. 

The chemical is "trichloroethylene" (TCE), a chemical typically used as a solvent to remove grease from auto parts and the metallic element is cobalt and cobalt compounds. 

The five viruses include human immunodeficiency virus type 1, human T–cell lymphotropic virus type 1, Epstein–Barr virus, Kaposi sarcoma–associated herpesvirus, and Merkel cell polyomavirus. Approximately 12% of cancers are attributed to viruses, and there are currently no vaccines available for these five. The listings in this report, particularly the viruses, bring attention to the important role that prevention can play in reducing the world’s cancer burden. There are also things people can do to reduce their exposure to cobalt and TCE.

The listings indicate a cancer hazard but, does not by itself mean that the substance or virus will cause cancer. Factors include susceptability to a substance, the amount and duration of exposure that affect the person and whether or not a person develops cancer. A weakened immune system may also be a contributing factor.
