Abstract Serum DDT and DDE levels were measured in 919 subjects in 1974 and 1975. Twohundred and nine of the subjects died, including 54 from cancer, during a 10-year prospective follow-up period. There was no relation between either overall mortality or cancer mortality and increasing serum DDT levels. There was weak evidence of
