Abstract: 3-MCPD (3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol) is the most common of the group of food contaminants called chloropropanols. 3-MCPD can cause cancer in laboratory animals fed large amounts over their lifetime. Although people usually consume chloropropanols only at low levels, there is still concern that these chemicals may be a health risk.
