The inhalation of cadmium chloride aerosols induces lung carcinomas in rats. Subsequently, CdCl2, was classified as probably carcinogenic in humans. Thus the Cd compounds CdCl2, CdSO4, CdS and CdO were investigated for their carcinogenic potencies in the lungs of hamsters and mice. The same experiment was conducted by Glaser et al with rats.
