Pesticides and prostate cancer in Martinique?

Landau-Ossondo et al. have published additional data suggesting that there may be a correlation between the use of certain types of pesticide and the growing incidence of prostate cancer (and perhaps breast cancer) on the French West Indian island of Martinique, and that this increasing incidence of prostate cancer cannot be exclusively explained by the known risks for prostate cancer among men of Afro-Caribbean ethnicity.

  1. I can quite understand how pesticides can could increase the risk of prostate and other cancers.

    This is in line with my view that maintaining a strong, healthy immune system should help anybody resist attacks – even cancer. Pesticides clearly weaken immune systems making them more susceptible to disease including cancers.
