Most parsimonious model: conditional logistic regression analyses that contained major chemical classes of pesticides and important covariates (P < 0.05)

Phenoxyherbicides as a group, carbamate, and organophosphate insecticides, amide group containing fungicides, and carbon tetrachloride users/nonusers were included in the initial multivariate model and found not to contribute significantly to the risk of NHL.
