Aldicarb, a carbamate pesticide, has been a known groundwater contaminant in Wisconsin since 1981. To assess the effects of chronic ingestion of low-level aldicarb-contaminated groundwater (less than 61 ppb) on the immune function of humans, we identified 50 women, ages 18 to 70, with no known underlying reason for immunodysfunction. Twenty-three of these women (exposed group) consumed groundwater with detectable levels of aldicarb, and 27 (unexposed group) consumed water from a source with no… CONTINUE READING
