The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified vinyl chloride
as a Group A, human carcinogen. Studies in workers who have breathed
vinyl chloride over many years showed an increased risk of liver, brain,
and lung cancer, and some cancers of the blood.
Studies also show
higher rates of liver, lung, and other types of cancer in animals that
are exposed to vinyl chloride.
Medical literature most closely links
prolonged vinyl chloride exposure to angiosarcoma of the liver (a rare
fatal tumor) and primary liver cancer. Vinyl chloride represents the
only established cause of cancerous brain tumors (there are other
unknown causes). Researchers have also linked leukemia, lung cancer, and
stomach or intestinal cancer to vinyl chloride exposure.
"Other existing remediation technologies require costly components to remove vinyl chloride and dichloroethane. However, the TU-51 Technology effectively removes vinyl chloride, 1,2-dichloroethane, and other VOCs in the environment."
