Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma has been found to be associated with agricultural pesticide use in men, but little is known about the risk in women.
In a recent population-based, case-control study conducted in eastern Nebraska, no increased risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was found in women who had ever lived or worked on a farm (odds ratio [OR]=1.0).
Neither the use of insecticides (OR=0.8) nor herbicides (OR=0.7) on the farm was associated with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; however, the number of women who mixed or applied pesticides was small, particularly in comparison to men on farms.
Small nonsignificant associations were observed among the women who personally handled insecticides (OR=1.3) or herbicides (OR=1.2).
