To the Editor.—I have given the letter from Dr. Klayman considerable thought and am inclined to feel that the possible relationship of the newer insecticides to cancer of the throat area should certainly be left open. Insecticides are used so commonly these days, it would not be difficult to find a history of their use retrospectively in patients going on to develop malignancy of the throat. However, the occupational aspects of several of these patients, one landscaper and four horticulturists, raises the probability that insecticide exposures may have been at least in part responsible.
