CDC: CRUDE OIL DOESN’T CAUSE CANCER — “inadequate evidence for the carcinogenicity in humans”

2

NIOSH, OSHA Interim Guidance for Protecting Deepwater Horizon Response Workers and Volunteers and  CDC website now list oil as non-carcinogenic for Humans citing a study from 1989. I wonder if Exxon paid for the study during the Exxon Valdez Spill?

NIOSH, OSHA Interim Guidance for Protecting Deepwater Horizon Response Workers and Volunteers , CDC website, July 26, 2010:

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) indicates that for crude oil, there is inadequate evidence for the carcinogenicity in humans. (Interagency Agency for Research on Cancer, Crude Oil, IARC Summary and Evaluation, Volume 45, 1989http://www.inchem.org/documents/iarc/vol45/45-02.html)

Crude Oil Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), August 2007:

Crude Oil is not listed as a carcinogen by the NTP, IARC, or OSHA.
