Vinyl chloride (VC) is a chemical of widespread industrial and commercial use. Occupational experience and experimental evidence strongly indicate that it is a carcinogen. Additionally, there is experimental evidence that indicates that it may be a teratogen and mutagen. An increased incidence of liver angiosarcoma, excessive liver damage, and acroosteolysis has been reported among VC workers, and the frequency and severity of the liver pathology is related to the length of exposure. The principal route of exposure is thought to be air inhalation. Sources of increased importance for the general population include food and water. Tumors at multiple and diverse sites have been observed in all species of experimental animals tested for carcinogenicity by inhalation and ingestion of VC. In addition to the health effects of VC, this document also considers the sources, distribution, and control technology.
