Individuals who are 'slow' acetylators have a greater susceptibility to bladder cancer than 'fast' acetylators. In addition to groups or individual pesticides listed, pesticide exposure in applicators, manufacturers and agricultural workers has been associated with bladder cancer. In these situations, the individual is exposed to mixtures of pesticides or different pesticides at different times. A correlation between an individual pesticide and disease can not be made.
