 Childhood leukemia may be caused by household chemicals 
by What Doctors Don't Tell You - 8/3/2009
Children may be getting leukemia from the chemicals and cleaning agents in their homes, new research suggests.

Children who develop acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) have far higher levels of two common pesticides found in household cleaners than do healthy children.

Researchers point out that this does not on its own mean that household chemicals definitely cause childhood leukemia, but it signals a likely health hazard that needs to be investigated quickly.

The researchers profiled 41 children with ALL and compared them with healthy children. All the leukemia sufferers had higher concentrations in their urine of two pesticides, DETP and DEDTP, found in household chemicals.
