While specific causes for ALL are not known, there are some known risk factors,  including  ionizing radiation Exposure to certain chemicals, particularly  benzene  (used in the manufacture of  plastics, rubber, and some medicines), has also been associated with an increased  risk of developing ALL.  ALL incidence in adults increases with age. The causes of ALL in children are also unknown.  Certain inherited genetic abnormalities, such as Down syndrome, increase the risk.  Some studies have shown  prenatal  exposure to  ionizing  radiation increases a child's  risk of ALL.  Some contaminants of tap water, such as trihalomethanes,  chloroform , zinc,  cadmium , and arsenic are associated with an increased risk.  A number of reports suggested an increased risk of ALL among children who lived in  proximity to high voltage power lines, but several later analyses suggested that was  not true.  Studies continue in efforts to  disprove  or confirm this possible connection.  ALL is more common in children who are not firstborn and among those whose  mothers took  antibiotics  during their pregnancies. Breastfeeding has been found to be  protective.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
