BACKGROUND Vitamin D and its metabolites are believed to impede carcinogenesis by stimulating cell differentiation, inhibiting cell proliferation, and inducing apoptosis. Certain pesticides have been shown to deregulate vitamin D's anticarcinogenic properties. We hypothesize that certain pesticides may be linked to prostate cancer via an interaction with vitamin D genetic variants. METHODS We evaluated interactions between 41 pesticides and 152 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in nine… CONTINUE READING
