Abstract
A general overview of the known and potential carcinogenic hazards of occupational exposure to ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation is presented, based on a literature review of original investigations published since 1970. Recent findings and current substantive issues are reported, and the impressions of investigators regarding the types of cancer induced by optical radiation are discussed. Other issues addressed include: proposed radiocarcinogen mechanisms, dose response relationships, wavelength dependence, and synergistic (cocarcinogenic) effects. The risk of excess radiation induced cancer under commonly encountered conditions of occupational exposure to ionizing and nonionizing radiation is estimated, and specific gaps in the present knowledge of radiation carcinogenesis are identified.
