How does TCE affect my health?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency has determined that TCE can cause cancer in humans – especially kidney cancer and possibly liver cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma—which is cancer of the lymph system. Exposure to TCE does not mean you will get cancer, however, your chance of getting cancer will be increased. Your chance, or risk, of getting cancer goes up with how much, how frequent, and how long your exposures have been.
