||This publication represents the views and expert opinions of an IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans (16-23 October 1990, Lyon, France). The report concludes that spraying and application of nonarsenical insecticides entail exposures that are probably carcinogenic in humans (Group 2A). Chlordane, heptachlor, DDT, dichlorvos, pentachlorophenol, atrazine are possibly carcinogenic in humans (2B) and captafol is probably carcinogenic in humans (2A). Aldicarb, deltamethrin, fenvalerate, permethrin, thiram, ziram, monuron, picloram, simazine and trifluralin are not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity in humans (3).
