Role of the herbicide atrazine in the development of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Atrazine is the most commonly used herbicide in the United States and is a widespread groundwater contaminant in the Midwest.
The role of atrazine in the development of human non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) was investigated in three case-referent studies conducted in four midwestern states in the United States.
A total of 993 white men with NHL and 2918 population based referents were interviewed concerning their agricultural practices.
When the results of the three studies were combined, atrazine use was associated with an odds ratio of 1.4 [95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.1-1.8, 130 cases, 249 referents) for NHL.
