Abstract :

Objectives: The most important objective of this presentation is to attract attention that the pesticides represent an important carcinogenic risk factor. The idea of this presentation came from the practical finding of many cases in the multiple hepatic metastases phase in asymptomatic patients who could not believe they had this final diagnosis and no pathological or family history. In these patients, I have done an anamnesis regarding the workplace and possible risk factors in the workplace. Some people worked in greenhouses and others were agronomist engineers. In all these jobs, pesticides are used in the workplace.

Material and Methods: I will present the situations of two patients, which came at the consultation for a routine control and non-specific symptoms: Asthenia, loss of appetite and after the abdominal ultrasound was performed, was discovered unexpected multiple liver metastases and they were in the end stage of life. After investigations, one presented colon cancer and was agronomist engineer 30 years and the other gastric cancer and worked in greenhouses 25 years. I have observed many clinical cases in my medical practice in the same situations, with similar workplaces and all most of them were presented digestive cancers: colon cancer, gastric cancers or pancreatic cancer.

Result and Discussion: All these categories of patient worked in the similar workplaces, greenhouses, and others were agronomist engineers, where used pesticides substances in agriculture.

Conclusion: The most important conclusion of this presentation is that the pesticides used in agriculture are certainly a carcinogenic risk factor, especially for digestive cancers (colon, stomach, pancreas) and the people must be informed.
