Data from an in-person interview study of 622 white men with newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and 1245 population-based controls in Iowa and Minnesota were used to measure the risk associated with farming occupation and specific agricultural exposures.
Men who ever farmed were at slightly elevated risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (odds ratio=1.2, 95% confidence interval=1.0-1.5) that was not linked to specific crops or particular animals.
Elevated risks were found, with odds ratio generally 1.5-fold or greater, for personal handling, mixing, or application of several pesticide groups and for individual insecticides,.
