    Hexavalent Chromium most certainly is a carcinogen; breathing it in every day for years can increase your risk of lung cancer. Different types of workers are exposed to Hexavalent Chromium daily, usually ones handling pigments containing dry chromate, spray paints, stainless steal, or any materials that contain chromate (examples: dyes, inks, paints, plastics, etc.). 

    Not only is hexavalent chromium a risk for cancer, it is also detrimental to the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract.
