What’s the Problem?
Vinyl chloride monomer is a chemical used to manufacture numerous common household products including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), plastics, rubber, furniture, glass, and paper. It is also widely used in automobile manufacturing and in construction. However, vinyl chloride has also been identified as a known human carcinogen (cancer-causing substance), and long-term exposure to the chemical has been linked to liver cancer, leukemia, brain cancer and other life-threatening health effects.
