A compiled list of cancer sites and related carcinogenic agents with “sufficient” and “limited” evidence in humans makes up part of a recent report by Cogliano et al., which offers insight on the state-of-the-science of carcinogen identification. It is based on the most recent volume (100) of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) monographs on the evaluation of carcinogenic risks to humans, discussed above.
