Abstract The consistent significant positive findings suggest that there is a weak association between brain cancer and farming. Exposures commonly experienced by farmers including infectious microorganisms and pesticides may contribute to the increased risk of brain cancer. Topics: agriculture; brain cancer; infectious diseases; literature survey; long-term exposure; microorganisms; occupation disease relation; pesticides; risk factors; zoonoses.
Descriptors (primary) occupation disease relation; agriculture; brain cancer
