Executive Summary

Talc and di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate are among 21 nominations on a proposed list of substances for the 12th Report on Carcinogens, which is slated for publication in 2006, the National Toxicology Program announces in a May 19 Federal Register 1notice. The substances may be reviewed in 2004 or 2005, "as either a new listing in or changing the current listing in the twelfth report," agency says.
