  • Report on Carcinogens
    The 14th Report on Carcinogens is released on November 3, 2016. The Report on Carcinogens (RoC) is a congressionally mandated, science-based, public health document that the NTP prepared for the HHS Secretary. The report identifies agents, substances, mixtures, and exposure circumstances that are known or reasonably anticipated to cause cancer in humans.

  • Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment
    Climate change is affecting the health of Americans. As the climate continues to change, the risks to human health will grow, exacerbating existing health threats and creating new public health challenges. This assessment significantly advances what we know about the impacts of climate change on public health, and the confidence with which we know it. While all Americans will be affected by climate change, the report recognizes populations of concern, such as children, the elderly, outdoor workers, and those living in disadvantaged communities, who are disproportionately vulnerable. Read the full report online.
