Until recently, the incidence of benzene carcinogenicity was based only on the association between benzene occupational exposure and human leukemia, with many limited case reports and scanty epidemiological data. Available experimental studies up to 1976 on animals were rare, fragmentary, and inadequate, and had failed to prove the carcinogenic effects of benzenes. However, an integrated project of long-term carcinogenicity bioassays, begun in our laboratory in 1976 and still continuing, has… CONTINUE READING
