As the US, Canada and the EU are all revising their stance on suspected carcinogen acrylamide, we track the developments in research and legislation since 2002 with our exclusive interactive timeline.

It has been more than seven years since Swedish researchers first reported that they had found a link between acrylamide and cancer in laboratory rats. But a survey released this week shows that consumers are still unaware of the chemical.

Here we present our interactive timeline on the developments of the past seven years to give an unique overview of the chronology of events and allow you to catch up on news you may have missed.

You can scroll from left to right by dragging with the left mouse button or use the bar at the bottom, zoom in and out with the tool at the top and click on any bubble to find more information.
