||The IARC October 2009 evaluation of benzene carcinogenicity was incomplete and needs to be reconsidered
||2011, Vol. 54, p.157-164. 74 ref.
||This article consists of a critical appraisal of IARC's 2009 evaluation of benzene carcinogenicity, which it considers incomplete and inconsistent. It argues that IARC's conclusion that there is sufficient evidence for benzene to cause acute non-lymphocytic leukemia only was based on an incomplete review, and that IARC should schedule another monographs' meeting dedicated to a complete and full review and discussion of all potential cancers related to exposure to benzene and to benzene-containing mixtures. The IARC working group responds to these criticisms in a following article of the journal (see ISN 111362).
