Cancer Concerns in the Environment

For an environmental contaminant to cause cancer or other diseases, there must be a completed pathway through which the contaminant travels to the human body. This could occur through air, water, food, or direct contact with the skin. 

The public may report concerns about cancer and the environment to the Environmental and Occupational Health Surveillance Program by calling (609) 826-4984.
