Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as exposure to solvents — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Have you been exposed to solvents or other carcinogens through lungs or skin, for example working with paints, glues, fuels or other chemicals?
Possible responses:→ No / don't know
→ Mild / short term, in the past only
→ Heavy / long term, in the past only
→ Moderate / short term current exposure
→ Heavy / long term current exposure
People in occupations that involve work with carcinogens have a greater risk of developing bladder cancer.
Some factors can make the disease more likely. For example, chemists, embalmers, and people who work in oil refineries, rubber factories, or drug factories may be at slightly higher-than-average risk.
Long-term exposure to environmental pollutants and continued assaults on the detoxifying systems may lead to oxidative stress, high levels of phase 1 activity in the liver, and reduced phase 2 detoxification.
People who work extensively with or are otherwise exposed to certain chemicals, such as pesticides, solvents, or fertilizers, have a greater chance of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
