Rotenone, Paraquat, and Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
PD was positively associated with two groups of pesticides defined by mechanisms implicated experimentally—those that impair mitochondrial function and those that increase oxidative stress—supporting a role for these mechanisms in PD pathophysiology. Expand
Amount of time spent in sedentary behaviors and cause-specific mortality in US adults.
TLDR
Time spent in sedentary behaviors was positively associated with mortality, and participation in high levels of MVPA did not fully mitigate health risks associated with prolonged time watching television. Expand
The Diesel Exhaust in Miners Study: A Nested Case–Control Study of Lung Cancer and Diesel Exhaust
TLDR
The findings provide further evidence that diesel exhaust exposure may cause lung cancer in humans and may represent a potential public health burden and an interaction between smoking and 15-year lagged cumulative REC was attenuated in the presence of high levels of the other. Expand
Mortality from lymphohematopoietic malignancies among workers in formaldehyde industries.
TLDR
Exposure to formaldehyde may cause leukemia, particularly myeloid leukemia, in humans, however, results from other investigations are mixed, suggesting caution in drawing definitive conclusions. Expand
Pesticides and other agricultural risk factors for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among men in Iowa and Minnesota.
TLDR
Consistency of several findings suggests an important role for several insecticides in the etiology of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among farmers. Expand
The Agricultural Health Study.
TLDR
The Agricultural Health Study, a large prospective cohort study has been initiated in North Carolina and Iowa and it is estimated that when the total cohort is assembled in 1997 it will include approximately 75,000 adult study subjects. Expand
The Diesel Exhaust in Miners study: a cohort mortality study with emphasis on lung cancer.
TLDR
The association between diesel exhaust exposure and lung cancer risk remained after inclusion of other work-related potentially confounding exposures in the models and were robust to alternative approaches to exposure derivation. Expand
Use of agricultural pesticides and prostate cancer risk in the Agricultural Health Study cohort.
TLDR
Use of chlorinated pesticides among applicators over 50 years of age and methyl bromide use were significantly associated with prostate cancer risk, and several other pesticides showed a significantly increased risk of prostate cancer among study subjects with a family history of prostatecancer but not among those with no family history. Expand
A nested case-control study of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and serum organochlorine residues
TLDR
There was a strong dose-response relation between quartiles of total lipid-corrected serum PCB concentrations and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma overall and there was also evidence suggesting that seropositivity for the Epstein-Barr virus early antigen potentiated the effects of serum PCBs. Expand
Mortality from solid cancers among workers in formaldehyde industries.
TLDR
In this cohort of formaldehyde-industry workers, some evidence was found of an exposure-response relation with mortality from nasopharyngeal cancer (based on small numbers) but not for cancers of the pancreas, brain, lung, or prostate. Expand
