IARC Monographs Volume 119: Evaluation of some chemicals that cause tumours of the urinary tract in rodents

28/06/2017 A Working Group of 21 scientists from 9 countries met at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) on 613 June 2017 to evaluate the carcinogenicity of 1‐tert‐butoxypropan‐2‐ol, β‐myrcene, furfuryl alcohol, melamine, pyridine, tetrahydrofuran, and vinylidene chloride. A summary of the evaluations has now been published in The Lancet Oncology. The detailed assessments will be published as Volume 119 of the IARC Monographs.

Benchmarking life expectancy and cancer mortality: global comparison with cardiovascular disease 19812010

22/06/2017 A new study coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and published today in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) assesses the global impact of cancer compared with cardiovascular disease (CVD) on changes in life expectancy. Using data from 52 populations included in the World Health Organization Mortality Database over the period 19812010, the study shows that declining cancer mortality rates were responsible for up to 20% of the overall gains in life expectancy at ages 4084 years. Declining CVD mortality rates had the greatest impact and were responsible for more than 50% of the overall gains experienced.
