Since 2000, only licensed people have been allowed to use the pesticide Chlorpyrifos. Researchers have found that the product may increase the risk of lung cancer in frequent users. The study involved 65,000 people and the results indicated that the largest doses and longest exposure had a direct link to incidence of lung cancer. Further studies will determine if the pesticide has any effect on breast cancer in women.
