Dr. Franklin Mirer was a member of the working group for IARC Monographs Volume 101, just posted in full. The monograph, which classified 18 chemicals as carcinogens, was authored by the members of the working group. Dr. Mirer had substantial input into the assessments of DEHP (a plasticizer and suspected environmental estrogen widespread in the environment), diethanolamine (an ingredient and contaminant in personal care products and metalworking fluids), as well as general comments on the cancer epidemiology of metalworking fluids.
