OBJECTIVES: To examine the recent epidemiological evidence on cancer risk among workers in the rubber industry. METHODS: Epidemiological studies published after the last detailed review by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in were reviewed. 12 cohort studies in nine countries that examined distinct populations of workers in the rubber industry, Cited by: The book is a bit dated, but the info is reverent to today.

Workers who were employed in the rubber manufacturing industry prior to that time may have an increased risk of developing mesothelioma cancer from asbestos exposure.

Throughout rubber plants, asbestos was often found insulating pipes to protect against chemicals and high temperatures. Asbestos gaskets were used to seal pipes, pumps, and equipment. The paper begins with a general description of bladder cancer, its descriptive epidemiology and the risk factors, other than work in the rubber industry, which have been identified.

Methods of early detection are also discussed briefly. Available information on the rubber industry, in particular its importance in Canada, is then summarized.

NIOSH conducted two studies of workers at a tire and rubber manufacturing plant. The first study was conducted to evaluate whether workers at the plant had an excess risk of bladder cancer due to their exposure to o-toluidine, a chemical used in one of the plant’s.

Occupational exposures in the rubber-manufacturing industry were considered by previous IARC Working Groups in and (IARC,). Since that time new data have become available, which have been incorporated in this Monograph, and taken into consideration in the present evaluation.

Even though this book was written 25 year ago, it is as true now as it was then. The "Cancer Industry" is largely a fraud, shunning non-mainstream cures which have shown to work, but which threaten the "Establishment."/5. Skin cancer.

The relationship between occupational rubber exposure and skin cancer is less certain. Increased incidence of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma among workers exposed to rubber stock and lubricating oils was found in a nested case–control study in Akron, Ohio in [].The distribution of these cancers on the body was similar to a sun Cited by: 1.

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 most widely used chemicals in the United States. A case/control study of skin cancer in the tire and rubber manufacturing industry was conducted. The cohort consisted of 65 white male rubber workers with histologically confirmed squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. They were matched to white male rubber workers without skin cancer with respect to company, year of birth, and year of hire.

in the rubber industry, seven industry based nested case-control studies, 48 com munity based case-control studies in 16 countries, and 23 studies based on admin istrative data that reported risks for employment in the rubber industry were identified.

Results?Excess risks of bladder cancer, lung cancer, and leukaemia were found in. The Cancer Industry and the True Cost of Treatment If you look up cancer in a medical dictionary, you will read that cancer begins when an injured cell speeds up the normal process of division.

Eventually these quickly dividing cells may form a tumor, which then may build its own set of blood vessels in order to feed itself in a process called. 1,3-Butadiene is used to produce synthetic rubber products, such as tires.

1,3-Butadiene is a colorless gas at room temperature with a gasoline-like odor. It is used to produce synthetic rubber products, such as tires, resins, and plastics, and other chemicals.

Exposure to 1,3-butadiene mainly occurs among workers who breath contaminated air on. A chemical used in rubber industry manufacturing might be carcinogenic.
