The incidence of non‐Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) has increased in most Western countries during the last few decades. Immunodefective conditions are established risk factors. In 1981, the authors reported an increased risk for NHL following exposure to certain pesticides. The current study was designed to further elucidate the importance of phenoxyacetic acids and other pesticides in the etiology of NHL. 
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia, and exposures in agriculture: results from the Italian multicenter case-control study.
TLDR
The results of the case-control study suggest an increased risk for NHL and leukemia, and some chemical classes of pesticides, although few are statistically significant and some are based on few exposed cases. Expand
Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Pesticide Exposure: 25 Years of Research
TLDR
The leveling-off of NHL incidence in certain countries may be the result of a favorable change in pesticide usage patterns, which may clarify the uncertainties regarding this issue. Expand
Occupational exposure to pesticides and lymphoid neoplasms among men: results of a French case-control study
TLDR
The hypothesis that occupational pesticide exposures may be involved in HL, MM and HCL and do not rule out a role in NHL is supported and the findings were consistent with those of previous studies. Expand
Exposure to Pesticides as Risk Factor for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Hairy Cell Leukemia: Pooled Analysis of Two Swedish Case-control Studies
TLDR
For several categories of pesticides the highest risk was found for exposure during the latest decades before diagnosis, however, in multivariate analyses the only significantly increased risk was for a heterogeneous category of other herbicides than above. Expand
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and residential proximity to toxic industrial waste in southern Israel.
TLDR
Environmental exposure has been linked to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and clinical characteristics of NHL patients were analyzed in relation to their proximity to the site. Expand
The non‐Hodgkin lymphomas: A review of the epidemiologic literature
TLDR
The non‐Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) are a heterogeneous group of B‐cell and T‐cell neoplasms that arise primarily in the lymph nodes that appear to be associated with differing types of HIV and other infectious agents. Expand
Agricultural exposures and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
TLDR
There is evidence of an increased risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among production workers and professional pesticide sprayers with heavy exposures, however, this increased risk does not appear to be confined to workers exposed to phenoxy herbicides containing 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, and it may be due to Phenoxy herbicide exposure itself rather than to the dioxin contaminants.

Non-hodgkin's lymphoma and work in agriculture: Results of a two case-control studies in Saskatchewan, Canada
TLDR
Exposure to pesticides was strongly associated with an increased risk of NHL, especially for men, and the incidence of NHL was associated with exposure to pesticides after adjusting for other independent predictors. Expand
Pesticide exposure as risk factor for non‐Hodgkin lymphoma including histopathological subgroup analysis
TLDR
An association between exposure to phenoxyacetic acids and NHL and the association with glyphosate was considerably strengthened and confirmed an association between exposures to pesticides and NHL was confirmed. Expand
Lymphoma risk and occupational exposure to pesticides: results of the Epilymph study
TLDR
The results provide limited support to the hypothesis of an increase in risk of specific lymphoma subtypes associated with exposure to pesticides. Expand

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

TLDR
In white men and white women, NHL mortality was consistently lower in the southern half of the United States for the following three decades: 1950-1959, 1960-1969, and 1970-1980. Expand
Risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among men occupationally exposed to organic solvents.
TLDR
The concept that occupational exposure to organic solvents is a risk factor for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is supported and a strong association between such exposure and an initial supradiaphragmatic location of the lymphomas is confirmed. Expand

TLDR
The biology of the well-known chromosomal translocations is discussed and additional biological factors in lymphomagenesis (aging, immunodeficiency, role of antigenic stimulation, and genetically determined susceptibility) are discussed. Expand
Increasing incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in Sweden 1958-1992.
TLDR
There has been a true increase in the age-adjusted incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in Sweden during the years 1958-1992, with the highest rates seen during the most recent years and in the oldest age group, although there was a clear trend with increased age- adjusted incidence over time.

Agricultural herbicide use and risk of lymphoma and soft-tissue sarcoma.
TLDR
This study confirms the reports from Sweden and several US states that NHL is associated with farm herbicide use, especially phenoxyacetic acids, and confirms the case-control studies and cohort studies of pesticide manufacturers and Vietnam veterans linking herbicides to STS or HD. Expand
