The International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) Monograph Progam evaluates substances, agents, and exposure circumstances on their carcinogenicity to humans. IARC recently released a summary of their evaluation of five chemicals: perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), dichloromethane (DCM), 1,2-dichloropropane (1,2-DCP), and 1,3-propane sultone (1,3-PS). The evaluation took place in June, 2014 in Lyon, France, and the full assessment will be published as volume 110 of the IARC Monographs.
The summary of the findings is published in the Lancet Oncology and is available free of charge via their website. Click here to view the summary.
