Abstract

Bukowski and Meyer believe that "routine childhood exposures" could not have caused the associations we found between home pesticide use and childhood cancer.' They state that children's exposures are "only ... intermittent and low level"-that is, too low to initiate or promote cancer. This assertion implies
that children's exposures are not only known but are also known to be too low to cause cancer in children. We take issue with both parts of this assumption.
