Carcinogen Alphabet: “N” for Nickel Products
There is an elevated risk of both lung and nasal cancers among workers involved in nickel working process.
There is sufficient evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of mixtures that include nickel compounds and nickel metal. These agents cause cancers of the lung and of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.
Nickel Compounds are carcinogenic to humans and classified as Group-1.
In support of the “No Time to Lose” Campaign the SEL Group will be running an “Alphabet of Carcinogens” campaign and each week we shall release details regarding a different well known carcinogen.
