Ethyl acrylate

: A substance used in making latex paints and textiles. The US government removed ethyl acrylate from its list of potential cancer-causing agents in 2000. Although ethyl acrylate induces tumors in animals, it only does so when the chemical is given by mouth at such high concentrations that there is severe persistent injury to the stomach. Comparable "significant chronic human oral exposure to (comparably) high concentrations of ethyl acrylate" was deemed by the government to be "unlikely."
