There is a loose connection with benzos and cancers but it seems certain benzos are worse offenders than others...after all benzos are a fusion of a benzene ring and a diazapine ring with benzene being a known carcinogen that results in many products being pulled from the market when containing large amounts of it.

Do you have citations you can share to support these claims?  I would be interested in reading them and I suspect other members would as well.
