The findings suggest higher prevalence of hypothyroidism in male private pesticide applicators exposed to the chlorophenoxy herbicides and some organochlorine and organophosphate insecticides, and higher prevalence of hypothyroidism in their female spouses who reported ever-use of the fungicides maneb/mancozeb and benomyl. Both prevalent and incident hypothyroidism cases were included but not distinguished in the prior analyses, so limited inference could be made regarding temporality of exposures and outcomes.
