||Canadian Environmental Protection Act: Priority Substances List Assessment Report - Xylenes
||Environmental Health Centre, Health Canada, Room 104, Tunney's Pasture, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0L2, Canada, 1993. v, 32p. Bibl.ref.
||This report reviews environmental and toxicological data on o-, m- and p-xylene. Since epidemiological studies are limited to a few investigations of a small number of workers exposed to mixtures of compounds including xylenes, there are inadequate data available to assess the health risks of xylenes in humans. Animal studies indicate that xylenes are probably not carcinogenic in humans.
