Abbreviations: CTE = central tendency exposure (typical); mg/kg/day = milligram chemical per kilogram body weight per day; mg/L = milligram chemical per liter water; RME = reasonable maximum exposure (higher); yrs = years

* The calculations in this table were generated using ATSDR’s PHAST. The cancer risks were calculated using the cancer slope factor of 30 (mg/kg/day)-1 and age-dependent adjustment factors.

‡ A shaded cell indicates that the cancer risk exceeds one extra case in a million people similarly exposed, which ATSDR evaluates further.

§This cancer risk represents a scenario where children are likely to continue to live in their childhood home as adults.
