Superfund Research Program
Researchers funded by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill SRP Center identified understudied chemicals that frequently occur in the same products as those linked to breast cancer. These findings could inform studies looking at how exposure to chemical mixtures influences disease risk.
The team focused on common exposure pathways, including food, pesticides, and personal care products, among others and identified 50 understudied substances with chemical properties like those of cancer-linked agents that should be prioritized for additional toxicological and human studies.
