The smoke from tobacco elicits carcinogenic effects on the tissues of the body that are exposed to the smoke. Tobacco smoke is a complex mixture of over 5,000 identified chemicals, of which 98 are known to have specific properties. The most important chemicals are those that produce DNA damage since such damage appears to be the primary underlying cause of cancer. Cunningham (...) et al. combined the microgram weight of the compound in the smoke of one cigarette with the known effect per microgram to identify the most compounds in cigarette smoke.

Human Lung Cancer Risks from Radon – Part I - Influence from Bystander Effects - A Microdose Analysis Since the publication of the BEIR VI report in 1999 on health risks from radon, a significant amount of new data has been published showing various mechanisms that may affect the ultimate assessment of radon as a carcinogen, at low domestic and workplace radon levels, in particular the Bystander Effect (BE) and the Adaptive Response radio-protection (AR). We analyzed the microbeam (...) , there is a variation of RBE from about 10 to 35.

Environmental Tobacco Smoke in Relation to Bladder Cancer Risk - The Shanghai Bladder Cancer Study. Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) contains tobacco carcinogens. Hepatic cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1A2 and N-acetyltransferase (NAT2) are important isoenzymes in activation and detoxification, respectively, of tobacco carcinogens. Data on ETS and bladder cancer risk are sparse.We examined the effects of ETS alone and combined with NAT2/CYP1A2 on bladder cancer risk among lifelong-nonsmokers in a case (...) -control study involving 195 patients and 261 controls in Shanghai, China. A comprehensive history of ETS exposure was determined through in-person interviews while CYP1A2 and NAT2 phenotypes by a caffeine-based urinary assay.ETS exposure was related to an overall statistically nonsignificant 38% increased bladder cancer risk. The risk increased with increasing number of cigarettes smoked by household members or number of hours per day at workplace where coworkers smoked. Compared with no ETS exposure

Alcohol based tissue fixation as an alternative for formaldehyde: influence on immunohistochemistry. Formaldehyde is commonly used in histopathology to fix tissue. Not only are the carcinogenic properties of this solution a hazard to the people in the workplace, it is also a major burden on the environment, and it crosslinks molecular groups that hinder immunohistochemistry.The influence of two new alcohol based non-crosslinking fixatives on immunohistochemical staining properties was tested (...) successfully be immunohistochemically stained for most antibodies following the usual NBF based protocols. Omission of pepsin pretreatment seems to be important to retain proper morphology of immunostained tissues preserved in alcohol based fixatives. Therefore, when switching to less toxic and non-carcinogenic alcohol-based fixatives like RCL2, no major changes in the daily routine of immunohistochemistry are anticipated.

for palliation in metastatic disease. Bladder cancer The most common causes of bladder cancer are carcinogenic chemicals – particularly aromatic amines – in urine. An important source of such carcinogens is cigarette smoke, and there is a significant dose-response relationship between the lifetime number of cigarettes smoked and the risk of bladder cancer. Meta-analysis of data from 43 studies reveals that, compared with non-smokers, current smokers face three times the risk of developing urinary tract (...) rates could decrease, as with lung cancer. Up to 20% of bladder cancers may be caused by exposure to chemicals in the workplace. 34 These can cause bladder cancer five to 50 (typically, 10-15) years later. The highest risk is again associated with aromatic amines, which used to be commonplace in dyes, paints and plastics and are currently found in diesel exhaust fumes and other industrial by-products. Occupations associated with increased risk include work in textile, dyestuffs, chemical or plastics

increase as, when the percentage of householders actually mitigating is low, the total number of properties requiring testing in order to obtain 73 mitigations will increase. These increased test costs would be wasted, "as no potential benefit is generated in the form of lower exposure to radon that would follow the mitigation". Authors' conclusions The potential benefits of radon mitigation in residential properties could be far greater than those achievable in workplaces and involve significantly (...) lower costs, as assessed in other studies. "Only when 5% of households carried out programmes of domestic mitigation did costs for domestic properties match those for workplaces."
