In 1989 aerosols of the oxide (CdO), the sulfate (CdSO4) and the sulfide (CdS) of Cadmium had been classified by the german Commission for the Investigation of Health Hazards of Chemical Compounds in the Work Area (MAK Commission) as substances with a carcinogenic potential for humans. Lung tumors had been observed by exposing rats to these chemical species (Glaser et al., 1990); no carcinogenic effect occured in hamsters or mice (Heinrich et al., 1989).
