This module is part of PALS - the Pesticide Applied Learning Series.
This module examines whether atrazine affects the risk of different cancers, including breast cancer. Information in this module comes from research studies. This includes studies of people exposed to atrazine and from studies using laboratory animals.
It also includes information on situations where atrazine exposure may be a concern, and reviews information on atrazine levels in water supplies.
This module recommends areas where more research is needed to provide additional information on the cancer risk of atrazine.
