Título Occupational cancer risk for pesticide workers.
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1974, Vol.7, No.2, p.243-271. 176 ref.
Resumen An assessment of the range of materials with carcinogenic potential to which pesticide workers may be exposed has been made by reviewing the literature; 175 relevant papers were found. Their review discloses that many pesticides possess at least low levels of carcinogenic activity for laboratory animals. It has also been established that some carriers and vehicles of pesticide chemicals are carcinogenic or co-carcinogenic in man. There is some evidence of synergistic action between ingredients of particular preparations, but no indication of additive carcinogenic potential among the pesticides studied.
