The document presents the results of a workshop held from May 9 to 11, 1988, in Keystone, Colorado, focused on the potential chronic health effects of pesticides. Seventy expert participants collaborated within six working groups concentrating on pesticide exposure, neurotoxicity, carcinogenicity, immunotoxicity, developmental toxicity, and reproductive toxicity. The report combines the deliberations of each of these several working groups developed before, during and after the workshop. In addition, it includes a general introduction and overview of the subject and an executive summary that contains several conclusions and recommendations that represent the consensus opinion of the chairs of the working groups. The views expressed in the document are those of the participating scientists and should not be construed as representing any Agency position.
