The American Industrial Health Council (AIHC) was an industry-funded group that lobbies against "excessive" regulation of carcinogens. (AIHC no longer appears in the Washington D.C. phone book).

AIGNC describes itself as "a broad-based industry trade association whose mission is to promote the sound use of scientific principles and procedures in public policy for the assessment and regulation of risks associated with human health effects and ecological effects. AIHC membership includes the manufacturers of consumer products, pharmaceuticals, petroleum, paper, chemicals, motor vehicles, foods, high technology and aerospace products. AIHC does not act as an advocate for any product or chemical."[1]
