The Environmental Protection Agency frequently puts mandatory controls on toxic substances that present as little risk as one in a million chances to cause cancer.
(A) as little risk as one in a million chances to cause
(B) as little risk as one chance in a million of causing
(C) as little risk as one chance in a million that it will cause
(D) a risk as little as one chance in a million for causing
(E) a risk as little as one chance in a million for it to cause

what is correct usage - 'risk of causing' .. or 'risk for causing'

It will be great if someone can guide me with usage of "risk"

Thanks

I went with D here.

"little risk" doesn't sound correct to me.

IMO B
"chance of" is the right idiom; risk of will be right as well.
