In brief: Some raise risk.
Phenoxy herbicides are often contaminated with dioxins like tcdd, which research suggests results in a small rise in cancer risk after exposure to these herbicides.
Triazine exposure has been implicated in a likely relationship to increased risk of breast cancer, although it is unclear if it causes it. Exposure to herbicides, like paraquat and pesticides increases risk for parkinson's disease.
