  • metabolites
  • These are important carcinogens in cooked foods, but to date, only metabolites of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine have been measured in urine, and no effect of smoking on its levels have been detected ( 9 ). (aacrjournals.org)
  • smokers
  • Although differences in the production and concentrations of chemical compounds in mainstream and sidestream smoke exist, the carcinogens in mainstream smoke inhaled by active smokers are largely the same as those in SHS (a mixture of mainstream and sidestream smoke) to which both smokers and nonsmokers may be exposed. (aacrjournals.org)
  • probable
  • Thirty-two of 48 products contained 1,4-dioxane, also considered a probable human carcinogen by the EPA, is a byproduct of a chemical processing techniques used to make petroleum-based ingredients gentler to the skin. (organicconsumers.org)
  • The agents in this list have been classified in Group 2A (probable carcinogens) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). (wikipedia.org)
  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies dioxane as a probable human carcinogen (having observed an increased incidence of cancer in controlled animal studies, but not in epidemiological studies of workers using the compound), and a known irritant (with a no-observed-adverse-effects level of 400 milligrams per cubic meter) at concentrations significantly higher than those found in commercial products. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • The Working Group categorised RF-EMF from mobile phones, and from other devices that emit similar non-ionising electromagnetic fields, as a Group 2B, i.e. a 'possible', human carcinogen . (wordpress.com)
  • Also, some virus are co-carcinogens like Herpesviruses, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and human herpesvirus 4 (HHV-4) Epstein-Barr virus destroy immune system for human body and then increase the risk of cancer such as Hodgkin's lymphoma and human immunodeficiency virus because they cause a long term-chronic inflammation for lymphocytes and epithelial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • naturally
  • Aflatoxin B1, which is produced by the fungus Aspergillus flavus growing on stored grains, nuts and peanut butter, is an example of a potent, naturally occurring microbial carcinogen. (wikipedia.org)
  • malignant
  • Carcinogens may increase the risk of cancer by altering cellular metabolism or damaging DNA directly in cells, which interferes with biological processes, and induces the uncontrolled, malignant division, ultimately leading to the formation of tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Generally, co-carcinogen can be irregular eating habits and disease virus and co-carcinogen not only help cancer cell make malignant tumor but also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Generally
  • EarthShare member National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) conducted a four-year study of the bottled water industry and found that while the water itself was generally safe, nearly 20 percent of the bottles tested were contaminated with possible carcinogens and neurotoxins. (earthshare.org)
  • They are generally carcinogens. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • After the carcinogen enters the body, the body makes an attempt to eliminate it through a process called biotransformation. (wikipedia.org)
  • The purpose of these reactions is to make the carcinogen more water-soluble so that it can be removed from the body. (wikipedia.org)
