A book worth dipping into is
An Ecologist Looks at Cancer
and the 'Environment'
by Sandra Steingraber,

and the use of herbicides and insecticides
and mentions organophosphates
including Agent Orange
to which so many Vietnam veterans were exposed.
She points out that the heavy use
of herbicides and insecticides in the home and garden

Also she highlights the dangers of substances used in certain industries

but unfortunately no reference to on-line sources.
