Excerpt
Excerpt: Each year, according to the American Cancer Society, about 54,300 Americans are diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), a cancer that originates in the lymph tissue, and about 19,400 people die from it. Several lines of evidence point to a possible association with pesticides. The incidence of NHL has roughly doubled since the 1970s, a few decades after a marked rise in U.S. household and agricultural pesticide use, and previous studies have found increases in chromosome aberrations and micronuclei in lymphocytes among pesticides applicators and some groups of farmers. This month, Ikuko Kato of Wayne State University and colleagues report an increased risk of NHL among New York State women with several types of pesticide exposure at home and on the job [EHP 112:1275?1281].
