Complications of Chemical poisoning -- DDT:

In the five studies of DDT-exposed workers, results do not indicate increases in the number of deaths or cancers. However, these studies had limitations so that possible increases in cancer may not have been detected. Because DDT caused cancer in laboratory animals, it is assumed that DDT could have this effect in humans. Therefore, EPA lists DDT, DDE, and DDD as probable human carcinogens. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has determined that DDT may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen. (Source: excerpt from FAQ WOMEN AND PESTICIDES: NWHIC)
