2,4-D and cancer: EPA remains indecisive while reporting new evidence of dioxin contamination

, : 2,4-D and cancer: EPA remains indecisive while reporting new evidence of dioxin contamination. Journal of Pesticide Reform 13(2): 28

It is reported that the Special Joint Committee on the Weight of Evidence of Carcenogenicity of 2,4-D concluded that there is 'weakly suggestive' evidence that 2,4-D is a human carcinogen.
