||The flame retardants chlorendic acid and chlorinated paraffins, and textile dye Disperse Blue I are possible carcinogens, as is nitrilotriacetic acid. Textile dye para-chloro-ortho-toluidine is a probable carcinogen. Processes and chemicals used in the textile manufacturing industry are described. Exposure data are provided for organic dusts, dyes, finishing agents and other compounds. Findings of bladder and nasal cancer among textile workers show that work in the textile manufacturing industry entails exposures that are possibly carcinogenic.
