List of substances which causes cancer included four more chemicals

List of carcinogenic substances, included Bromopropain, Cumen, Pentachlorophenol and by products of its synthesis, O-Toluidine 

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have updated and published a list of substances which are known to cause cancer in human or substances which have potential risk to cause cancer.

1) 1-Bromopropane .
2) Cumen
3) Pentachlorophenol and its synthesis byproducts.
4) O-Toluidine

Above four substances can cause damage to DNA of human being on repeated exposure and cause mutation in cellular DNA which is nothing but formation of cancer cell.


One must avoidcontact with the substances listed in the list published by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
