Recommended Posts

The Dutch Health Council, an independent scientific body which advises the government and parliament of the country, has advised the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment a substance known as adriamycin, which is marketed as Doxorubicin or Rubex, is in the list of products considered carcinogenic.

According to experts, manufacturing, administration and subsequent cleaning of the remains of the substance and material used to administer it to patients by qualified personnel “increases the risk of developing cancer.”

Although members of the Board of Health do not talk about percentages because they “still lack enough data on animal experiments and human clinical trials,” they still recommend adding  adriamycin to the so-called Category 1B pharmaceuticals.

The classification that has been established by the Health Commission of the European Union include the use of the “substance capable of causing cancer.” In Category 1A the list includes other “known carcinogenic” compounds.

“While epidemiological studies to date are inconclusive, we do have sufficient evidence in animals about adriamycin being a carcinogen”, said experts from the Dutch entity.
