The lower valley of Jaguaribe has registered, since the XXI century, the arrival of transnational and regional companies, which led to deep transformations in this region. Key words: Pesticides; Environmental exposure; Neoplasms; Congenital abnormalities; Fetal death; Occupational health Introduction The XXI century as an expression of productive and socio-spatial restructuration registers the arrival of major transnational and regional companies of irrigated fruit farming for exportation, which induced a deterritorialization process in the region.

In addition to the common drawbacks of an ecological epidemiology approach, important flaws regarding hypothesis formulation and exposure assessment can be observed in the aforementioned study. The authors' hypothesis was that exposure to pesticides (in general and not to a particular substance or group of related compounds) is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes.

One of the hypotheses rose to explain such elevated risk is the intense exposure to pesticides. Aim To estimate the brain cancer mortality risk among agricultural workers exposed to pesticides in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Methods A case–control study based on death certificates of males, 18 years or older, resident in the State Rio de Janeiro who died between 1996 and 2005. Results Agricultural workers showed higher brain cancer mortality risk estimates when compared with non-farm workers (aOR: 1.82, 95% CI 1.21–2.71).

Conclusion This study suggests an association between agricultural work and brain cancer mortality in Rio de Janeiro state.
