Historically, the rubber industry has been associated with increased risk of bladder cancers and this has been shown to be associated with exposure to a contaminant ßeta naphthylamine present in Nonox S until 1949. However, more recent studies of health of workers in the rubber industry employed since 1982 have shown that increased risks of cancers are no longer present in the rubber industry.
