Scientists drew attention to mercaptobenzothiazol (MBT). This compound in a small amount is present in baby nipples, latex gloves, Shoe soles, condoms and other synthetic items.

In microscopic doses MBT can penetrate through the mouth or respiratory tract. In the list of carcinogens a substance is below cigarette tobacco. About the real ability of MBT to cause cancer, the scientists do not mention.
