• known
  • The two primary mechanisms by which carcinogens initiate the formation of such tumours is via alterations in DNA that encourage cell division and that prevent cells from being able to self-destruct when stimulated by normal triggers, such as DNA damage or cellular injury (a process known as apoptosis ). (britannica.com)
  • For example, Thorotrast , a (incidentally radioactive) suspension previously used as a contrast medium in x-ray diagnostics, is a potent human carcinogen known because of its retention within various organs and persistent emission of alpha particles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Following its inception, IARC received numerous requests for lists of known and suspected human carcinogens. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • During this introductory online 13 Carcinogen safety class, we will teach you what carcinogens are and what they can do to the human body. (clicksafety.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)
  • irregular
  • 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)
  • Causes
  • By taking ClickSafety's 13 Carcinogens online course, you will become aware of the many causes of cancer commonly found in industrial job sites. (clicksafety.com)
  • 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
  • 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)
  • found
  • EarthShare member the Natural Resources Defense Council tested 1,000 of what item and found that 20 percent of them contained possible carcinogens and neurotoxins? (earthshare.org)
  • cellular
  • Most carcinogens, singly or in combination, produce cancer by interacting with DNA in cells and thereby interfering with normal cellular function. (britannica.com)
  • case
  • In the case of carcinogens which pose a danger through inhalation, pastes or pellets can be used to avoid the possibility of airborne dust. (wikipedia.org)
  • Common
  • The common cultivated mushroom Agaricus bisporus or champignon contains hydrazine, a component of modern rocket fuel and a potent rodent carcinogen. (houstonpress.com)
  • 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)
