2005). Studies also show that in utero exposure to BPA increases both the number of precancerous lesions and in situ tumors (Murray et al. 2007). In addition, studies have shown that exposure to BPA in utero also increases the number of mammary tumors following adulthood exposures to lower doses of BPA than those generally needed to induce tumors (Durando et al. 2007; Jenkins et al. 2009). Studies using cultures of human breast cancer cells show that along with its many other effects on cell growth and proliferation, BPA has been shown to mimic estradiol in causing direct damage to DNA (Iso et al.

Benzene is among the most abundantly produced chemicals in the United States (ATSDR 2007). Human exposure to benzene occurs primarily by inhaling benzene in ambient air (CDC 2009). Automobile sources and gasoline filling stations are significant industrial sources of benzene in outdoor air, while indoor sources include the off-gassing of building materials as well as exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ATSDR 2007). The consumption of food, drinking water, and beverages is considered a negligible source of exposure unless benzene contamination has occurred (ATSDR 2007).

2010), indicating that there is a serious basis for concern about ongoing occupational exposures. nPB serves as a drop-in substitute for chlorinated solvents in a number of industrial applications, and in the United States at least, it is not currently subject to the federal regulations controlling the use of these substances. Given recent, albeit preliminary, findings about its possible carcinogenicity, trends in use of nPB are a source of concern.
