Occupational exposure to pesticides and other biocides and risk of thyroid cancer
Biocides are disinfectants, antiseptics, and preservatives. For the 23 different types, see: https://copublications.greenfacts.org/en/biocides-antibiotic-resistance/figtableboxes/12.htm
Of particular concern are human hygiene products, in-can preservatives, insecticides (acaricides – arthropod control), repellents, and food preservatives.
Regarding insecticides/acaricides, always cover your body when spraying, wear gloves, and stand so that the sprays do not come back on you. Avoid breathing sprays into lungs.
