||Health risk and occupation in agricultural settings in Italy
||Jan.-Mar. 2005, Vol.11, No.1, p.96-102. 52 ref.
||This literature survey reviews studies on the association between cancer and occupation in agricultural settings in Italy, focusing on exposure to pesticides. Most of the cohort studies evaluated cancer mortality in licensed pesticide users. Several case-control studies considered haematolymphopoietic malignancies, and the most recent studies observed increased risks for use of specific chemical classes of pesticides. It is suggested that a national surveillance system should be implemented to identify areas at high risk and to promote exposure control programs.
