Abstract Background We assessed the cancer risks of four different Finnish asbestos-exposed cohorts. We also explored if the cohorts with varying profiles of asbestos exposure exhibited varying relative risks of cancer. Methods The incident cancer cases for the asbestos-exposed worker cohorts were updated to the end of 2012 using the files of the Finnish Cancer Registry. The previously formed cohorts consisted of asbestos mine workers, asbestosis patients, asbestos sprayers, and workers who had ...

Mustard gas, or sulfur mustard, is a chemical with devastating acute toxic effects. The development, production, acquisition, stockpiling and transfer of all chemical weapons, including mustard gas, were banned by The Chemical Weapons Convention of 1997. However, mustard gas was used as a chemical warfare agent during many international political conflicts and wars of the twentieth century. A known, highly toxic, mutagenic carcinogen in animal models and an established carcinogen in humans,1 mus...

Au cours de leur vie, les personnes sont exposees a de nombreux polluants environnementaux et professionnels a leur domicile, sur leur lieu de travail ou par le biais de l’environnement. Ces expositions ne peuvent normalement etre directement controlees par les individus eux-memes. Des liens de causalite ont ete etablis entre un certain nombre de substances chimiques, de metaux, de poussieres, de fibres et de professions et un risque accru de cancers specifiques tels que le cancer du poumon, le ...

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Monographs Programme identifies chemicals, drugs, mixtures, occupational exposures, lifestyles and personal habits, and physical and biological agents that cause cancer in humans and has evaluated about 1000 agents since 1971. Monographs are written by ad hoc Working Groups (WGs) of international scientific experts over a period of about 12 months ending in an eight-day meeting. The WG evaluates all of the publicly available scientific infor...

We want to thank the Collegium Ramazzini for their (unsigned) comments on the 2014 update of the Helsinki criteria (1). The original Helsinki criteria (criteria) were published in 1997 (2). The Helsinki criteria updates of 2014 consisted of preparatory work in the form of reviews by four work groups on pre-selected topics (subject areas). This was thus not a systematic re-evaluation of the entire criteria and major portions of the 1997 criteria are unaffected by the updates. Based on the reviews...

Abstract People are exposed throughout life to a wide range of environmental and occupational pollutants from different sources at home, in the workplace or in the general environment – exposures that normally cannot be directly controlled by the individual. Several chemicals, metals, dusts, fibres, and occupations have been established to be causally associated with an increased risk of specific cancers, such as cancers of the lung, skin and urinary bladder, and mesothelioma. Significant amount...

Abstract This overview describes the principles of the 4th edition of the European Code against Cancer and provides an introduction to the 12 recommendations to reduce cancer risk. Among the 504.6 million inhabitants of the member states of the European Union (EU28), there are annually 2.64 million new cancer cases and 1.28 million deaths from cancer. It is estimated that this cancer burden could be reduced by up to one half if scientific knowledge on causes of cancer could be translated into su...
