NIOSH released its updated study of bladder cancer at the Goodyear plant in Niagara Falls, NY, finding 50 cases of bladder cancer, an overall excess bladder cancer incidence of nearly three times the expected rate, and a six-fold excess among definitely exposed workers with 10 or more years of exposure. According to NIOSH, the permissible exposure limits for ortho-toluidine "need to be                     re-examined" and further measures to reduce skin exposure "may be required."
