  • Description:
    Based on a review of toxicologic and epidemiologic studies, there is evidence to suggest that carbon black may cause adverse pulmonary and heart changes. Carbon black also has the capability of absorbing various PAH's, which may pose a cancer risk. Also, skin effects have been reported after persons had contact with carbon black. However, the available toxicologic and epidemiologic information has deficiencies. So further scientific research should be conducted to confirm the pulmonary, heart, and skin changes attributable to carbon black exposure. The cancer risk from carbon black exposure should also be more clearly defined.
