27. Sorahan T. (2015). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) There were no statistically significant trends for multiple myeloma risks in relation to reported cumulative days (or intensity weighted days) of glyphosate use; the doubling of risk reported previously arose from the use of an unrepresentative restricted dataset, and analyses of the full dataset provides no convincing evidence for a link between multiple myeloma risk and glyphosate use. glyphosate Workers United States Details Multiple Myeloma
28. Chokkalingam AP, et al. (2012). The results provide support for a role of xenobiotic transport and metabolism pathways in risk of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia and indicate that genes in these pathways may modulate the risk of disease associated with use of common household chemicals.

33. Delancey JO, et al. (2009). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) The results from this study suggest a potential association between metribuzin use and certain lymphohematopoietic malignancies; however, having not been observed previously caution should be used in interpretation. metribuzin Workers United States Details Hematologic Neoplasms | Leukemia | Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin
34. Molla YB, et al. (2014). The precise trigger of podoconiosis (endemic non-filarial elephantiasis of the lower legs) is unknown, but epidemiological studies have linked the disease with barefoot exposure to red clay soils of volcanic origin; more quantities of smectite, mica, and quartz within the soil were associated with podoconiosis prevalence. mica | Quartz | Smectite Study subjects Ethiopia Details Elephantiasis
35. Fewtrell L. (2004).

42. Reynolds P, et al. (2005). California Department of Health Services Study The generally null results in this study systematically examining the risk relationships for residential proximity to agricultural pesticide use stand in contrast to existing epidemiologic literature suggesting elevated childhood cancer risks from reported household pesticide use.
