||Mortality due to cancers of the brain and lymphatic tissues, and leukemia as a function of agricultural pesticide use in Quebec (1976-1985)
||Mortalité par cancers du cerveau, des tissus lymphatiques et la leucémie selon l'utilisation des pesticides, en agriculture, au Québec (1976-1985) [in French]|
||May-June 1991, Vol.82, No.3, p.174-180. Illus. 37 ref.
||Relationships between the mortality data for cancers of the brain, the lymphatic tissues and leukaemia, and the spatial distribution of agricultural pesticide use for 34 drainage basins in Quebec, Canada, from 1976-1985 are described. Agreement between the results for mortality data in this exploratory study and the results from another study on cancer incidence data for 1982-1983, supports the hypothesis of a potential relationship between the use of pesticides in agriculture and cancer of the lymphatic tissues.
