Abstract
Two hundred years after Percivall Pott discovered occupationally caused scrotal cancer in chimney sweeps, a number of examples are given of known carcinogens to which many workers in the U.S. are still exposed, though the dangers are documented, and some countries have banned some of the substances. The implications of this continued exposure at present and in the future are discussed in terms of increased cancer rates. These increases are found not only in the workers involved but in their families and people who live near factories. Most known environmental carcinogens are a result of increased agricultural and industrial technology, and a new commitment is urged so that occupationally related cancer may be eradicated.
