What Are They?
Carcinogens are invisible and can be related to several popular types of household or workplace items. We provide carcinogen testing for many different substances, including some of the more well-known such as:
An invisible gas that doesn’t have a smell, radon occurs naturally through the decay of uranium or thorium. However, it also is highly radioactive and sticks to dust particles. When inhaled, it can adhere to the lining of the lungs. Next to smoking, radon exposure is considered to be the second most common cause of lung cancer.
A heavy metal that occurs in alloys of lead, Arsenic can leach into waterways, and even be found in the water you drink. Repeated exposure to this substance can lead to bladder and kidney cancer.
A soft, bluish-white metal, cadmium is found in a variety of items, such as batteries, paint, and even solar cells. Although quite useful, exposure to it can occur in drinking water, especially in areas where mining has occurred. Cadmium has been linked to breast and prostate cancer.
A colorless and highly flammable liquid, its most common use is an ingredient in gasoline. It has also been detected in plastics, synthetic fibers, rubber, and even some medications. Even slight exposure to this chemical is considered to be extremely hazardous, and long-term exposure has been known to lead to leukemia and bone marrow failure.
