Cancer risk from Chemicals

Graphic designed by Professor John Adams. The orange square in top left represents the 30 chemicals we know that cause cancer. The beige area around it represents the 3000 chemicals we have fully tested. The grey area represents all the chemicals we know exists. Are you worried? Click for full size version.

The above graphic was part of a surprisingly lucid article on the BBC about our attitude towards activities where the risk of harm is simply unknown. This blog post is simply to show the above graphic and remind myself that BBC can still write good stuff when they put their minds to it.
