These evaluations are subject to change based on new data findings. As is, the determinations on this list are based on laboratory animal testing, metabolism studies, the structural relationships of these chemicals to other carcinogens, and mode of carcinogenic action information and epidemiologic findings in humans (when available). These determinations are also based solely on the inherent risks associated with the chemicals and do not include probabilities for exposure.
