Evaluates the carcigenic risk to humans posed by occupational exposure during the spraying and application of insecticides. The book also features separate mographs evaluating the carcigenicity of 17 individual pesticides, including several that have been banned by industrialized countries yet are still used in the developing world. Although some of these pesticides have been in use for more than four decades, evaluations of carcigenicity were hindered by the sparsity of well-designed epidemiological studies. The first and most extensive mograph evaluates data from descriptive and ecological studies, cohort studies, and case-control studies suggesting an increased risk of cancer, most tably lung cancer, multiple myeloma and other tumours of B-cell origin, in workers exposed to insecticides during their application. On the basis of this evaluation, the book concludes that the spraying and application of narsenical insecticides entail exposures that are probably carcigenic to humans. The remaining mographs evaluate the carcigenicity of aldicarb, atrazine, captafol, chlordane, DDT, deltamethrin, dichlorvos, fenvalerate, heptachlor, monuron, pentachlorophel, permethrin, picloram, simazine, thiram, trifluralin, and zitram. Of these, captafol, a fungicide used on plants, for seed treatment, and as a wood preservative, was classified as probably carcigenic to humans. Atrazine, chlordane, DDT, dichlorvos, heptachlor, and pentachlorophel were classified as possibly carcigenic to humans. The remaining pesticides could t be classified on the basis of available data.
