Cyclodienes are a group of organochlorine pesticides that have been the focus of increasing numbers of breast cancer etiology studies in recent years. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to summarize and pool the results of breast cancer and cyclodiene insecticide contamination studies. We used databases from 1966 to 7/2006 and included 21 case-control studies. Pooled odds ratios or differences in means as geometric means ratios were calculated. Meta-analysis of the…

TLDR
Evidence of an association between increased breast cancer risk and environmental exposure to these chemicals is inconsistent and inadequate to conclude with certainty, and major data gaps remain in examining exposure during critical windows of vulnerability and assessing combined effects of multiple chemicals.
Persistent Organic Pollutants and Breast Cancer: A Systematic Review and Critical Appraisal of the Literature
TLDR
A systematic review of 95 studies retrieved from three main electronic databases found that POPs measured in breast adipose tissue were more clearly associated with higher breast cancer incidence and POPs measuring in blood were more consistently associated with worse breast cancer prognosis.
Prediagnostic serum concentrations of organochlorine pesticides and non-Hodgkin lymphoma: A nested case-control study in the Norwegian Janus Serum Bank Cohort.
TLDR
Only limited evidence of positive association between selected OCPs and development of NHL is found and several other analytes, primarily chlordane-related compounds, showed inverse associations among younger participants or those with longer follow-up time between blood draw and NHL diagnosis.
Environmental chemicals and breast cancer: An updated review of epidemiological literature informed by biological mechanisms
TLDR
New studies that targeted toxicologically relevant chemicals and captured biological hypotheses about genetic variants or windows of breast susceptibility added to evidence of links between environmental chemicals and breast cancer.
Phenylpyrazole insecticides induce cytotoxicity by altering mechanisms involved in cellular energy supply in the human epithelial cell model Caco-2.
TLDR
Cellular symptoms observed in these experiments lead us to hypothesize that phenylpyrazole insecticides interacted with mitochondria, suggesting an increase in glucose metabolism by pesticides.
Evaluation of excess statistical significance in meta-analyses of 98 biomarker associations with cancer risk.
TLDR
Most well-documented biomarkers of cancer risk without evidence of bias pertain to infectious agents, and an excess of statistically significant findings was observed in studies of IGF/insulin and inflammation systems, suggesting reporting biases.
Insecticide Use and Breast Cancer Risk among Farmers’ Wives in the Agricultural Health Study
TLDR
Use of several organophosphate insecticides was associated with elevated breast cancer risk among wives of pesticide applicators (farmers), but associations for the women’s and husbands’ use of these insecticides showed limited concordance.
Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals: Associated Disorders and Mechanisms of Action
TLDR
Observations suggesting that endocrine disruptors do contribute to cancer, diabetes, obesity, the metabolic syndrome, and infertility are listed in this paper.
Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals: Associated Disorders and Mechanisms of Action
The incidence and/or prevalence of health problems associated with endocrine-disruption have increased. Many chemicals have endocrine-disrupting properties, including bisphenol A, some
Organochlorine pesticide exposure among agricultural workers in Colombian regions with illegal crops: an exploration in a hidden and dangerous world
TLDR
The data suggest that banned organochlorine pesticides are used in a war context, where the problems related with pesticides are complex, and their implications go beyond a toxicological or epidemiological viewpoint.

Occurrence of beta‐hexachlorocyclohexane in breast cancer patients
TLDR
The residues of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon and neutral organochlorine compounds in breast fat of 44 breast cancer patients and 33 women free of cancer were determined and beta‐HCH remained a significant risk factor of breast cancer.
The link between the insecticide heptachlor epoxide, estradiol, and breast cancer
TLDR
It is suggested that HE-induced NO production may contribute to initiation, promotion, and progression of cancer.
Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane burden and breast cancer risk: a meta-analysis of the epidemiologic evidence.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 22 articles using DerSimonian and Laird's method for random effects models and results should be regarded as a strong evidence to discard the putative relationship between p,p'-DDE and breast cancer risk.
Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane burden and breast cancer risk: a meta-analysis of the epidemiologic evidence.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 22 articles using DerSimonian and Laird's method for random effects models and results should be regarded as a strong evidence to discard the putative relationship between p,p'-DDE and breast cancer risk.
[Organochlorine compounds and breast cancer--is there a connection between environmental pollution and breast cancer?].
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that exposure to oestrogenic organochlorines may increase the risk of breast cancer.
Organochlorines in the environment and breast cancer
TLDR
The women with breast cancer had slightly higher concentrations of DDE than controls but the difference was not statistically significant, and the polychlorinated biphenyls group used in industry was not affected.
Breast cancer incidence and exposure to pesticides among women originating from Jaipur.
TLDR
The results indicated that organochlorine pesticides taken for analysis were found significantly high in breast cancer patients irrespective of age, diet, and geographic distribution.
Organochlorine exposure and breast cancer survival.
TLDR
Past exposure to estrogenic organochlorines such as dieldrin may not only affect the risk of developing breast cancer but also the survival, which was strengthened when exposure was assessed as the average serum concentration of the two measurements.
Breast cancer and organochlorines: a marker for susceptibility?
TLDR
Alternative hypotheses, which may in part explain the possible role of organochlorine compounds in the etiology of breast cancer, are presented.
Organochlorine exposure and risk of breast cancer
TLDR
Findings support the hypothesis that exposure to xeno-oestrogens may increase the risk of breast cancer.
