For both the RfD and the RfC, alternate backgrounds (and therefore different RfDs and RfCs ) are described in the Toxicological Review. Cadmium is classified as a probable human carcinogen by inhalation exposure based on limited evidence from human occupational studies and on animal inhalation studies in which lung cancer was observed. Evidence for cadmium carcinogenicity via the oral route is judged inadequate.
