Background: Polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs and organochlorine pesticides have been associated with altered thyroid hormone levels in humans, but their relationship with thyroid cancer is unknown. Methods: We conducted a nested case-control study of thyroid cancer in the Norwegian Janus Serum Bank cohort using pre-diagnostic blood samples from to Controls were matched by age, date of blood draw, gender, and county. PCBs and pesticide metabolites were evaluated individually and summed by degree of chlorination and parent compound, respectively.

This case study reviews a residential contamination case involving local residents exposed to PAH- and PCB-contaminated water that flooded their properties. It illustrates the importance of applying generally-accepted, peer-reviewed toxicological assessment methods and the steps necessary to present scientifically credible findings in litigation. A family who lived adjacent to a creek began experiencing severe health problems including several unusual types of cancer. The creek, which also ran through a nearby acre manufacturing site, had been infiltrated by a local storm sewer system. Although the site had supposedly been "cleaned up" by the manufacturing company, further investigation revealed the presence of numerous chemicals in the soil including PAHs polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons , PCBs polychlorinated biphenyls , cyanide, solvents and heavy metals.
