9. Lerro C, et al. (2014). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) The associations between acetochlor and colorectal and lung cancer are novel; however, due to lack of exposure-response trend, small number of exposed cases, and relatively short time between use and cancer development, these findings warrant caution in interpretation and further investigation. acetochlor Workers United States Details Agricultural Workers' Diseases | Colorectal Neoplasms | Lung Neoplasms

18. Purdue MP, et al. (2007). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) Our analysis of data from the Agricultural Health Study cohort suggests that, overall, use of organochlorine insecticides was not related to cancer risk.
