Pesticides and other agricultural risk factors for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among men in Iowa and Minnesota.
Consistency of several findings suggests an important role for several insecticides in the etiology of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among farmers. Expand
A nested case-control study of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and serum organochlorine residues
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
Case-control study of bladder cancer and arsenic in drinking water.
Overall, there was no association of bladder cancer with either measure; however, among smokers, but not among nonsmokers, positive trends in risk were found for exposures estimated for decade-long time periods, especially in the 30- to 39-year period prior to diagnosis. Expand
Integrative assessment of multiple pesticides as risk factors for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma among men
Background: An increased rate of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) has been repeatedly observed among farmers, but identification of specific exposures that explain this observation has proven difficult.Expand
Pesticide exposures and other agricultural risk factors for leukemia among men in Iowa and Minnesota.
There were slight, but significant, elevations in risk for all leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia for farmers compared to nonfarmers and this finding of elevated risks for insecticides used on animals deserves further evaluation. Expand
Bladder cancer and exposure to water disinfection by-products through ingestion, bathing, showering, and swimming in pools.
Long-term THM exposure was associated with a twofold bladder cancer risk, with an odds ratio of 2.10 (95% confidence interval: 1.09, 4.02) for average household THM levels of >49 versus < or =8 micro g/liter. Expand
Drinking Water Nitrate and the Risk of Non‐Hodgkin's Lymphoma
It is shown that longterm exposure to elevated nitrate levels in drinking water may contribute to the risk of NHL, and the combined effect of water nitrate and carotene intake. Expand
Occupational Exposures and Female Breast Cancer Mortality in the United States
Mortality records from 24 states, gathered from 1984 to 1989 and coded for occupation and industry, were used to develop leads to workplace exposures as possible breast cancer risk factors. AExpand
Drinking water source and chlorination byproducts in Iowa. III. Risk of brain cancer.
The authors conducted a population-based case-control study in Iowa of 375 brain cancer patients and 2,434 controls to gather information on lifetime residential history, sources of drinking water, beverage intake, and other potential risk factors, finding an association among men with above-median tap water consumption with increased glioma rates. Expand
Drinking Water Source and Chlorination Byproducts I. Risk of Bladder Cancer
The overall association of bladder cancer risk with duration of chlorinated surface water use that is found is consistent with the findings of other investigations, but the differences in risk between men and women, and between smokers and nonsmokers, have not been widely observed. Expand
