Dr. CATHERINE METAYER of the Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Leukemia and the Environment at the University of California Berkeley shows that use of pesticides around homes, particularly during the prenatal period, may increase risk of childhood leukemias, particularly acute lymphoblastic leukemia or ALL. Pesticides may not be persistent enough to be detected in house dust collected years after exposure. Use of paint in the home after pregnancy may increase risk of ALL.

This was part of a symposium organized by the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment http://oehha.ca.gov/index.html, the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit at UCSF http://coeh.berkeley.edu/ucpehsu, and the Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Leukemia and the Environment at the University of California Berkeley http://circle.berkeley.edu. Research funding is from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and US EPA. Views expressed are not those of the agencies
