The report presents an analysis of cancer risks in the United States from outdoor exposures to airborne toxic pollutants. It is intended to provide updated information to suggest priorities for air toxics control. The study is an update of an EPA report issued in 1985 entitled The Air Toxics Problem in the United States: An Analysis of Cancer Risks for Selected Pollutants. The analysis is based primarily on information derived from recent studies and reports. Results are expressed as cancer risk from individual pollutants and source categories in terms of excess lifetime individual cancer risks and nationwide annual cancer cases. Health risks due to indoor exposure and noncancer health effects resulting from outdoor exposure are not included in the analysis, but are addressed in separate studies.
