I know of one study that found a causal link between 2-4, D, an
auxin herbicide used in grains to control broadleafs. This particular
study had a very close link between growers who applied their
own herbicides as opposed to non-applicators.
I'd be very interested in this study. Has anyone check the NPR site?
