It has been used as an acaricide and as an insecticide.Dieldrin: An organochlorine insecticide whose use has been cancelled or suspended in the United States. It has been used to control locusts, tropical disease vectors, in termite control by direct soil injection, and non-food seed and plant treatment. (From HSDB)Insecticides: Pesticides designed to control insects that are harmful to man. The insects may be directly harmful, as those acting as disease vectors, or indirectly harmful, as destroyers of crops, food products, or textile fabrics.Food Contamination: The presence in food of harmful, unpalatable, or otherwise objectionable foreign substances, e.g. chemicals, microorganisms or diluents, before, during, or after processing or storage.Agriculture: The science, art or practice of cultivating soil, producing crops, and raising livestock.Lindane: An organochlorine insecticide that has been used as a pediculicide and a scabicide. It has been shown to cause cancer.Chromatography, Supercritical Fluid: A CHROMATOGRAPHY method using supercritical fluid, usually carbon dioxide under very high pressure (around 73 atmospheres or 1070 psi at room temperature) as the mobile phase. Other solvents are sometimes added as modifiers. This is used both for analytical (SFC) and extraction (SFE) purposes.Fungicides, Industrial: Chemicals that kill or inhibit the growth of fungi in agricultural applications, on wood, plastics, or other materials, in swimming pools, etc.Food Analysis: Measurement and evaluation of the components of substances to be taken as FOOD.Endosulfan: A polychlorinated compound used for controlling a variety of insects. It is practically water-insoluble, but readily adheres to clay particles and persists in soil and water for several years. Its mode of action involves repetitive nerve-discharges positively correlated to increase in temperature. This compound is extremely toxic to most fish. (From Comp Biochem Physiol (C) 1993 Jul;105(3):347-61)Chlorofluorocarbons, Methane: A group of methane-based halogenated hydrocarbons containing one or more fluorine and chlorine atoms.Pharmaceutic Aids: Substances which are of little or no therapeutic value, but are necessary in the manufacture, compounding, storage, etc., of pharmaceutical preparations or drug dosage forms. They include SOLVENTS, diluting agents, and suspending agents, and emulsifying agents. Also, ANTIOXIDANTS; PRESERVATIVES, PHARMACEUTICAL; COLORING AGENTS; FLAVORING AGENTS; VEHICLES; EXCIPIENTS; OINTMENT BASES.Wetting Agents: A surfactant that renders a surface wettable by water or enhances the spreading of water over the surface.Organophosphorus Compounds: Organic compounds that contain phosphorus as an integral part of the molecule. Included under this heading is broad array of synthetic compounds that are used as PESTICIDES and DRUGS.Carbamates: Derivatives of carbamic acid, H2NC(=O)OH. Included under this heading are N-substituted and O-substituted carbamic acids. In general carbamate esters are referred to as urethanes, and polymers that include repeating units of carbamate are referred to as POLYURETHANES. Note however that polyurethanes are derived from the polymerization of ISOCYANATES and the singular term URETHANE refers to the ethyl ester of carbamic acid.Herbicides: Pesticides used to destroy unwanted vegetation, especially various types of weeds, grasses (POACEAE), and woody plants. Some plants develop HERBICIDE RESISTANCE.Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane: An organochlorine insecticide that is slightly irritating to the skin.

Its unusual stability has resulted in difficulties in residue removal from water, soil, and foodstuffs. This substance may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen: Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP-85-002, 1985). (From Merck Index, 11th ed)Maximum Allowable Concentration: The maximum exposure to a biologically active physical or chemical agent that is allowed during an 8-hour period (a workday) in a population of workers, or during a 24-hour period in the general population, which does not appear to cause appreciable harm, whether immediate or delayed for any period, in the target population. (From Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)Growth and Development: The series of changes to the shape, size, components, and functions of an individual organism that occur over time as the organism progresses from its initial form to full size and maturity.Vegetables: A food group comprised of EDIBLE PLANTS or their parts.Pyrethrins: The active insecticidal constituent of CHRYSANTHEMUM CINERARIIFOLIUM flowers.

This includes preening, the cleaning and oiling of feathers with the bill or of hair with the tongue.Environmental Monitoring: The monitoring of the level of toxins, chemical pollutants, microbial contaminants, or other harmful substances in the environment (soil, air, and water), workplace, or in the bodies of people and animals present in that environment.Soil Pollutants: Substances which pollute the soil. Use for soil pollutants in general or for which there is no specific heading.Agricultural Workers' Diseases: Diseases in persons engaged in cultivating and tilling soil, growing plants, harvesting crops, raising livestock, or otherwise engaged in husbandry and farming. The diseases are not restricted to farmers in the sense of those who perform conventional farm chores: the heading applies also to those engaged in the individual activities named above, as in those only gathering harvest or in those only dusting crops.Chromatography, Gas: Fractionation of a vaporized sample as a consequence of partition between a mobile gaseous phase and a stationary phase held in a column. Two types are gas-solid chromatography, where the fixed phase is a solid, and gas-liquid, in which the stationary phase is a nonvolatile liquid supported on an inert solid matrix.Water Pollutants, Chemical: Chemical compounds which pollute the water of rivers, streams, lakes, the sea, reservoirs, or other bodies of water.Solid Phase Extraction: An extraction method that separates analytes using a solid phase and a liquid phase.

PMID: 19103455 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE. The levels of organochlorine pesticides were measured in 18 fish species from Konya markets, Turkey. These species were selected on the basis of their importance to local human fish consumption. Total 14 different organochlorine pesticides were determined. These residues were detected in all fish species, except in trout, horse mackerel and bonito. DDT and its metabolites and HCH were the predominant contaminants in fish muscles. The mean concentrations of summation operator DDT were in the range between 0.0008 and 0.0828 microg g -1. DDT was the predominant residue in Sparus aurata. The mean of endrin ranged from 0.0040 microg g -1 Triglia lineate to 0.0326 microg g -1 Trachurus trachurus. These results give no indication of important health risks associated with the consumption of these fishe...

Contamination of fish by organochlorine pesticide residues in the Ouémé River catchment in the Republic of Bénin. MedLine Citation:. PMID: 16494946 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE. Abstract/OtherAbstract:. In the Republic of Bénin, aquatic ecosystems are subject to poisoning risks due to the inappropriate use of pesticides, such as washing of empty bottles in rivers and using pesticides to catch fish. In some areas, cotton fields are located near riverbanks, increasing the probability of pesticide emission to the river. To assess contamination levels in the Ouémé River catchment area, different fish species were collected from different geographical areas along the river. DDT, its metabolites and isomers were the most frequently identified pesticides in fish flesh, alpha-endosulfan, beta-endosulfan, dieldrin, telodrin, lindane and octachlorostyrene were also detected. Concentrations of pest...

Pesticide Residues in Foods: Is Food Safety Just a Matter of Organic versus Traditional Farming. by Ric Bessin, Extension Entomologist University of Kentucky College of Agriculture. However, beginning even before birth, we are exposed to low levels of pesticide residues through our foods. Consumers are very concerned about pesticide residues on food. To regulate the safety of foods, the Environmental Protection Agency EPA has set tolerance levels, or maximum legal limits for pesticide residues on food commodities for sale in the U.S. EPA tolerances are based on a very conservative set of assumptions including that each pesticide is applied at the maximum rate allowed by the label, the maximum number of applications are made, and only the minimum permissible interval is allowed between applications. If the maximum possible exposure to a chemical is less than the l...

Nearly half the organic fresh fruits and vegetables tested across Canada in the past two years contained pesticide residue, according to a CBC News analysis of data supplied by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency CFIA. Of the 45.8 per cent of samples that tested positive for some trace of pesticide, a smaller amount — 1.8 per cent — violated Canada’s maximum allowable limits for the presence of pesticides, the data shows. As widespread as the pesticide residues were, they were still considerably less than the 78.4 per cent of non-organic samples the inspection agency found containing pesticide residues, violating the allowable limits 4.7 per cent of the time. The CFIA told CBC News that none of the test results posed a health risk. The agency did not prevent any of the food from being sold as organic. Of the domestically grown samples, about ...

Pesticide residues: Seven reasons your food is safe. Pesticide Blog. Blog health Pesticide residues: Seven reasons your food is safe. Pesticide residues: Seven reasons your food is safe health. By Gavin May 7th, 2013 1 Comment. A residue is a trace amount of pesticide that sometimes remains on or in a crop. In Europe, residues are carefully monitored and pesticides strictly regulated. Seven reasons why your food is safe:. In the EU no crop protection product pesticide can be used unless it is scientifically established that they have no harmful effects on consumers, farmers and local residents, as well as passers-by, and the environment. The legal limits for residue levels – so called ‘Maximum Residue Levels’ MRLs – are set by independent government agencies. MRLs are trading standards, not safety limits. MRL levels are set significantly lower than thresholds for safety – so even when an MRL is exceeded, this does not mean your health is at risk. At cialis generique Dayst day. By way of an example; to reach t...

Health Canada and EPA Adopt OECD Calculator for Establishing Legal Limits for Pesticide Residues In 2005, Health Canada s Pest Management Regulatory Agency PMRA and EPA s Office of Pesticide Programs OPP jointly released a spreadsheet to calculate statistically-based legal limits for pesticide residues, referred to as maximum residue levels MRLs 1 or tolerances 2. The North American Free Trade Agreement NAFTA MRL Harmonization Working Group developed this spreadsheet to better coordinate the pesticide regulatory framework among NAFTA partners with the goal of minimizing trade barriers of pesticide-treated commodities between the United States and Canada. In addition to the NAFTA MRL spreadsheet, referred to as the NAFTA MRL Calculator, the NAFTA MRL Harmonization Working Group also r...

Monitoring the Transfer of Pesticide Residues from Soft Surfaces to Foods. Abstract: The Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 requires assessing pesticide residue exposures to children. Contact of soft surfaces by foods and the ingestion of the food represents a pesticide exposure pathway. Chlorpyrifos has widespread use indoors and would be protected from environmental degradation by rain, sun or temperature fluctuations. Pesticides are known to accumulate on surfaces after indoor pesticide application. Children's exposure to pesticides from surfaces such as napkins and tablecloths is related to residue amounts present on surfaces prior to contact, the foods contacted and their transfer coefficient. Surfaces contaminated with pes...

*  Maximum Residue Limit
... Pesticide residues on crop s are monitored through the use of 'Maximum Residue Limits' MRL, which are based on the analysis of the quantity of a given chemical remaining on food product samples. The MRL is usually determined by repeated on the order of 10 field trials, where the crop has been treated according to good agricultural practice GAP and an appropriate pre harvest interval or withholding period has elapsed. For many pesticides this is set at the Limit of Determination LOD – since only major pesticides have been evaluated and understanding of Acceptable daily intake ADI is incomplete i.e. producers or public bodies have not submitted MRL data – often because these were not required in the past. LOD can be considered a measure of presence/absence, but certain residues may not be quantifiable at very low levels. For this reason the limit of quantification LOQ is often used instead of the LOD. As a rule of thumb the LOQ is approximately two times the LOD. It follows that adoption of GAP at the farm...

... BioMedSearch. Document Detail. Drug and chemical residues in domestic animals. MedLine Citation:. S Department of Agriculture's Meat and Poultry Inspection Program routinely tests for chemical residues in animals coming to slaughter. Pesticides, heavy metals, growth promotants hormones and hormonelike agents , and antibiotics are included. Analyses for heavy metals have revealed detectable levels of mercury, lead, and others, but none at levels that are considered a health hazard. Of the hormone or hormonelike substances, only diethylstilbestrol has been a residue problem and its future is uncertain. The most extensive monitoring for veterinary drugs is on the antimicrobials, including sulfonamides, streptomycin, and the tetracycline group of antibiotics that constitute the bulk of the violations; their simultaneous use prophylactically and therapeutically has contributed to the problem in certain cases.

John Hawkins Right Wing News. Archives Best of RWN Humor John Hawkins Interviews Quotes Special to RWN Polling. consumers about pesticide residues on the fruits and vegetables in supermarkets. The EWG annually selects a “dirty dozen” produce items that they say pose the most pesticide residue danger to consumers and their kids. The most potent risk that Winter and Katz found in the “Dirty Dozen” was an exposure only 50 times lower than the Reference Dose for methamidophos – but that reference dose includes a 1,000—fold uncertainty factor for extrapolating the results of the most sensitive animal studies. For three commodities–blueberries, cherries, and kale–the Reference Doses were more than 30,000 times higher than the exposure estimates for all of the ten most frequently detected pesticides on those commodities. Results from this study strongly suggest that consumer exposure to the ten most common pesticides found on the “Dirty Dozen” produce items are several orders of magnitude below levels required to ca...

... pesticide OCP residues. Document Detail. Evaluation of conventionally and organically produced vegetables for high lipophilic organochlorine pesticide OCP residues. MedLine Citation:. The occurrence and distribution of highly hydrophobic organochlorine pesticide OCP in vegetables cultivated under organic and conventional conditions were evaluated. OCP residues in aerial and subterranean tissues of two varieties of lettuce and chard together with the soil where they grown were GC-ECD analyzed. Conventional soils had higher OCP residues than organic one, even though levels were bellow 5 ng/g dry weight, indicative of low polluted agricultural environments. Vegetables accumulated OCP efficiently with residue levels 4x to 45x fold greater than those of soils. Lettuce showed a high variability in pesticide uptake regarding varieties and tillage practices. In spite of analyzed pesticides are banned or restricted, edible tissues of vegetables from both farms showed detectable residues of these compounds even th...

Train No 339 leaves Abohar every night to reach Bikaner next morning. Over a period of time it has come to be known as Cancer Train. This train has acquired the dubious reputation simply because nearly 100 cancer patients travel by it from Punjab to Bikaner for diagnosis and treatment at the Acharya Tulsi Regional Cancer Treatment and Research Institute. The patients and their families travel as long as 350 kilometres every day from Abohar to Bikaner picking up cancer patients and their families from other stations in the southern Punjab. After diagnosis or treatment they return to their villages and small towns of the entire Malwa tract.

08 Aug New WHO Report Focuses on Children’s Susceptibility to Chemicals Beyond Pesticides , August 8, 2007 For the first time, the World Health Organization WHO released a report in July on children’s heightened vulnerability to chemical exposures at different periods of their growth and development. The report notes that children have different susceptibilities during different life stages, referred to as “critical windows for exposure” or “critical windows of development,” due to their dynamic growth and developmental processes, as well as physiological, metabolic, and behavioral differences. Through inhalation and absorption – children have a higher inhalation rate and a higher body surface area to body weight ratio, which may lead to increased exposures. Some examples of health effects resulting from developmental exposures prenatally and at birth include miscarriage, still birth, low birth weight and birth defects; in young children, infant mortality, asthma, neurobehavioral and immune impairment; and ...

... Residents of Iowa were enrolled in a study investigating differences in pesticide contamination and exposure factors between 25 farm homes and 25 non-farm homes. In addition, a questionnaire was administered to the farmers to determine the agricultural pesticides they used on the farm and their application practices. Non-agricultural pesticides were used more in and around farm homes than non-farm homes. Atrazine was the agricultural pesticide used most by farmers. Most farmers applied pesticides themselves but only 10 59% used tractors with enclosed cabs, and they typically wore little personal protective equipment PPE. On almost every farm, more than one agricultural pesticide was applied. Corn was grown by 23 92% farmers and soybeans by 12 48% farmers. Of these, 10 40% grew both soybeans and corn, with only 2 8% growing only soybeans and 13 52% growing only corn. The majority of farmers changed from their work clothes and shoes in the home, and when they changed outside or in the garage, they usually ...

(1/281) Relationships between environmental organochlorine contaminant residues, plasma corticosterone concentrations, and intermediary metabolic enzyme activities in Great Lakes herring gull embryos.

Experiments were conducted to survey and detect differences in plasma corticosterone concentrations and intermediary metabolic enzyme activities in herring gull (Larus argentatus) embryos environmentally exposed to organochlorine contaminants in ovo. Unincubated fertile herring gull eggs were collected from an Atlantic coast control site and various Great Lakes sites in 1997 and artificially incubated in the laboratory. Liver and/or kidney tissues from approximately half of the late-stage embryos were analyzed for the activities of various intermediary metabolic enzymes known to be regulated, at least in part, by corticosteroids. Basal plasma corticosterone concentrations were determined for the remaining embryos. Yolk sacs were collected from each embryo and a subset was analyzed for organochlorine contaminants. Regression analysis of individual yolk sac organochlorine residue concentrations, or 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin equivalents (TEQs), with individual basal plasma corticosterone concentrations indicated statistically significant inverse relationships for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDDs/PCDFs), total polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), non-ortho PCBs, and TEQs. Similarly, inverse relationships were observed for the activities of two intermediary metabolic enzymes (phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and malic enzyme) when regressed against PCDDs/PCDFs. Overall, these data suggest that current levels of organochlorine contamination may be affecting the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis and associated intermediary metabolic pathways in environmentally exposed herring gull embryos in the Great Lakes.  (+info)

(2/281) Does an association between pesticide use and subsequent declines in catch of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) represent a case of endocrine disruption?

Historical aerial applications of the insecticide Matacil 1.8D provide an opportunity to look for potential effects of the endocrine disrupting compound 4-nonylphenol (4-NP) on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) populations. Matacil 1.8D contained the carbamate insecticide aminocarb, with 4-NP as primary solvent. Between 1975 and 1985 Matacil 1.8D was applied to forests in Atlantic Canada to control damage from the spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana). After spraying, estimated concentrations of 4-NP in water fell within a range in which estrogenic effects might be anticipated. The spraying coincided with final stages of smolt development in salmon. Salmon catch data were evaluated considering effects on survival of the smolt stage. There was a significant negative relationship between the returns of salmon and the proportion of tributaries sprayed within the Restigouche River drainage basin in 1977. There was also a broader event of unusually heavy salmon smolt mortality in 1977, which contains a significant relationship indicating that where Matacil 1.8D spraying occurred, the smolt mortality increased. For 16 rivers exposed to spraying between 1973 and 1990, a significant proportion (p<0.005) of the lowest salmon catches coincided with Matacil 1.8D spraying. A decline coinciding with the use of Matacil 1.8D was also apparent in blueback herring (Alosa aestivalis) catches in New Brunswick. Because similar relationships were not evident for Matacil 1.8F or fenitrothion, neither of which were formulated with 4-NP, we hypothesize that the 4-NP in Matacil 1.8D was the causal agent. Concentrations of 4-NP described here are within current ranges encountered in industrial effluents and municipal sewage outfalls.  (+info)

(3/281) Dermal transfer of chlorpyrifos residues from residential surfaces: comparison of hand press, hand drag, wipe, and polyurethane foam roller measurements after broadcast and aerosol pesticide applications.

Indoor residential pesticide applications present the potential for human exposures, particularly for small children. Personal contact with target and nontarget surfaces can result in transfer of pesticides to the skin, but the magnitude of such transfer is uncertain. This research compared surface sampling techniques [wipe and polyurethane foam (PUF) roller] with the removal ability of human skin following broadcast and total aerosol release applications of Dursban (Dow Elanco, Midland, MI), a residential formulation containing the insecticide chlorpyrifos. Hands were washed immediately after surface contact, following a protocol that included a laboratory-generated adjustment factor to account for incomplete removal of chlorpyrifos from skin. Chlorpyrifos transfer was similar for hand press and hand drag techniques, averaging approximately 1-6 ng/cm2 of carpet contacted. These amounts represented < 1% of the amount of chlorpyrifos deposited on the surfaces 3.5 hr earlier. Chlorpyrifos transfer from carpet to skin was 23-24 times lower than for wipe sampling and 33-36 times lower than for PUF roller sampling (p = 0.0007 and p = 0.0006 for broadcast and aerosol applications, respectively). Hand press sampling removed approximately 4.5 times less chlorpyrifos from nontarget furniture surfaces (12 ng/cm2) than did wipe sampling (56 ng/cm2; p = 0.009). Chlorpyrifos residues on carpet were substantially higher after broadcast applications than after aerosol applications, but residues on such nontarget surfaces as furniture were substantially higher for the aerosol application. This study indicates that human skin removes substantially less residue from carpets and furniture than either conventional wipe or PUF roller sampling methods following residential pest control applications of chlorpyrifos. Although this paper focuses on quantifying residue transfer from surface to skin using different surface sampling techniques, no attempt is made to quantify the amount of chlorpyrifos residue that is subsequently absorbed.  (+info)

(4/281) Environmental health in the east Baltic region--pesticides and persistent organic compounds.

Exposure to, and the potential effects of, pesticides and persistent organic pollutants in the East Baltic region are reviewed. Exposure of the average population to chlorinated compounds seems lower than in most of western Europe, and current pesticide use is very low. However, due to infrastructure failures and poor management controls, industrial hot spots and inadequate storage sites exist that cause high risks to small population fractions. The low exposure of the general population is indicated by low concentrations of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans and biphenyls in milk fat. Chlorophenol concentrations are also generally lower than in Scandinavia. Some organic pesticides have been found at higher concentrations in Baltic countries and the St. Petersburg area than in Norway, but the range is roughly similar to that in central Europe. Thus the overall risk caused by pesticide residues and persistent organic compounds in the Baltic countries and northwestern Russia is low, but local sites of concern exist.  (+info)

(5/281) Mortality among workers in an Italian cigarette factory.

A cohort study was conducted to evaluate the mortality pattern among female and male workers in a cigarette factory. The study followed 972 female workers and 761 male workers with at least 6 months of cumulative employment from 1 January 1962 through 1 July 1996. Among women, mortality from all causes of death [standardized mortality ratio (SMR) = 0.9; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.8-1.1] and mortality from all malignant neoplasms (SMR = 1.1; CI = 0.9-1.3) were consistent with reference rates. Male workers had a significantly reduced overall mortality (SMR = 0.8; CI = 0.7-0.9), while mortality from all malignant neoplasms was as expected (SMR = 0.9; CI = 0.7-1.0). Among female workers the frequencies of deaths from diseases of nervous system (SMR = 2.0; CI = 1.1-3.4) and from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) (SMR = 2.7; CI = 1.0-5.6) were elevated at a statistically significant level. No association between duration of employment and diseases of nervous system was observed. A higher risk for NHL, based on three deaths, was reported among female workers with 15 or more years of employment (SMR = 8.1; CI = 2.2-21.0). Although based on small numbers, the excess of NHL here reported suggests that potential exposure to foliar residues of pesticides should be thoroughly considered in tobacco manufacturing.  (+info)

(6/281) Breast adipose tissue concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls and other organochlorines and breast cancer risk.

Numerous studies have examined the relationship between organochlorines and breast cancer, but the results are not consistent. In most studies, organochlorines were measured in serum, but levels in breast adipose tissue are higher and represent cumulative internal exposure at the target site for breast cancer. Therefore, a hospital-based case-control study was conducted in Ontario, Canada to evaluate the association between breast cancer risk and breast adipose tissue concentrations of several organochlorines. Women scheduled for excision biopsy of the breast were enrolled and completed a questionnaire. The biopsy tissue of 217 cases and 213 benign controls frequency matched by study site and age in 5-year groups was analyzed for 14 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners, total PCBs, and 10 other organochlorines, including p,p'-1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethylene. Multiple logistic regression was used to assess the magnitude of risk. While adjusting for age, menopausal status, and other factors, odds ratios (ORs) were above 1.0 for almost all organochlorines except five pesticide residues. The ORs were above two in the highest concentration categories of PCB congeners 105 and 118, and the ORs for these PCBs increased linearly across categories (Ps for trend < or =0.01). Differences by menopausal status are noted especially for PCBs 105 and 118, with risks higher among premenopausal women, and for PCBs 170 and 180, with risks higher among postmenopausal women. Clear associations with breast cancer risk were demonstrated in this study for some PCBs measured in breast adipose tissue.  (+info)

(7/281) Examination of selected food additives and organochlorine food contaminants for androgenic activity in vitro.

In order to produce a reporter gene assay for androgenic chemicals, a constitutive expression vector coding for the human androgen receptor and a reporter construct containing the firefly luciferase coding sequence under transcriptional control of the androgen responsive MMTV promoter were cotransfected into the androgen-insensitive human PC-3 prostate carcinoma cell line and stable transfectants selected. One colony of transfectants, PC-3 LUCAR+, was characterized further. 5alpha-Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) enhanced luciferase activity in a linear fashion for up to 3 days of culture. The Kd for DHT activation was within the range of 25.0-60.0 pM (r2 values >0.95). Flutamide competitively inhibited DHT activation (mean Ki value of 0.89 microM). Progesterone, estradiol, dexamethasone, and hydrocortisone were weak agonists (100-fold less effective than DHT) and diethylstilbestrol was without effect. The effects of organochlorine food contaminants (0, 0.1, 1.0, and 10.0 microM) on luciferase activity in PC-3 LUCAR+ cells were determined after exposure to the chemical for 18 h in the presence and absence of DHT (50 pM). 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)-ethylene (p,p'-DDE) induced luciferase activity in the absence of DHT (100 microM p,p'-DDE equivalent to 50 pM DHT), but in the presence of DHT (50 pM), p,p'-DDE acted antagonistically. 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, kepone, butylated hydroxyanisole, and butylated hydroxytoluene all partially inhibited activation by DHT (50 pM) but alone had little or no effect. Toxaphene at 10 microM induced luciferase activity in the absence of DHT but decreased cell viability. Alpha- and delta-Hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCH) at 10 microM antagonized the DHT effect, but beta-HCH and gamma-HCH mirex, photomirex, oxychlordane, cis- and trans-nonachlor were without effect. Thus, of the chemicals tested, some interact with the human androgen receptor in vitro as agonists, others as antagonists, and some as partial agonists/antagonists.  (+info)

(8/281) Salmonid sexual development is not consistently altered by embryonic exposure to endocrine-active chemicals.

Fish sexual development is sensitive to exogenous hormone manipulation, and salmonids have been used extensively as environmental sentinels and models for biomedical research. We simulated maternal transfer of contaminants by microinjecting rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) embryos. Fish were reared for 6 months and sexed, and gonads were removed for histology and measurement of in vitro steroid production. Analysis of fat samples showed that dichlorodiphenylethylene (DDE) levels, o, p'M-DDE and p,o, p'-DDE isomers, were elevated 6 months after treatment. A preliminary study showed an increased ratio of males to females after treatment with 80 mg/kg and 160 mg/kg of the xenoestrogen o,o, p'-DDE. One fish treated with 160 mg/kg o,o, p'-DDE had gonads with cells typical of both males and females. A follow-up study, using more fish and excluding the highly toxic 160 mg/kg o,o, p'-DDE dose, showed no effect on sex ratio or gonadal histology. Embryonic exposure of monosex male trout, monosex female trout, and mixed sex salmon to o, o, p'-DDE, p,o, p'-DDE, mixtures of DDE isomers, and octylphenol failed to alter sexual development. We observed no treatment-dependent changes in in vitro gonadal steroid production in any experiments. Trout exposed in ovo and reared to maturity spawned successfully. These results suggest that mortality attributable to the xenoestrogens o,o, p'-DDE, chlordecone, and octylphenol, and the antiandrogen p,o, p'-DDE, is likely to occur before the appearance of subtle changes in sexual development. Because trout appeared to be sensitive to endocrine disruption, we cannot dismiss the threat of heavily contaminated sites or complex mixtures to normal sexual development of salmonids or other aquatic organisms.  (+info)


Has anyone ever died or gotten seriously ill from the pesticide residue in eating non-organic foods?


I've been looking into the health claims of organic foods, not using chemical pesticides and the health risks of genetically modified foods.

My two questions are: Has anyone ever died or gotten seriously ill from the pesticide residue in eating non-organic foods (not from farming accidents involving pesticides)? And has anyone died or gotten ill from genetically modified foods? Seeing as billions of people in the world eat conventional foods, it should be easy to find cases for these.

Please cite sources, thanks.
----------

Acute poisoning from pesticides does not occur, produce is inspected and the growers have to keep accurate records of pesticide application to insure that residues are at acceptable levels.  The real health concerns have focused on the effects of chronic ingestion of pesticides, there is currently no evidence to show that there are any negative health effects but as this is a very long term study any results will necessarily take a long time.  The effects of genetic modification on health are not know, however, as the modifications don't add anything to the plant/animal that wasn't there in the first place there is no reason to believe that there will be health problems associated with genetically modified plants and animals.


What conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables require the most pesticide usage?


I'm interested in buying organic, but it's expensive, so I'd like to focus my efforts on those products that require the most pesticides to grow conventionally.  The info I've seen on this issue usually refers only to pesticide residue, which I'm not concerned about -- I'm looking to minimize the overall impact on the environment.  Basically, I'd like to keep buying less-expensive conventional products for foods that aren't heavily treated, and pay the organic premium only for those foods that account for substantial pesticide use (or other environmental damage) when grown conventionally.

Although these aren't food items, cotton and alfalfa are huge pesticide crops... :)

Where do you live? In California, there is a Department of Pesticide Regulation, and they tell you in pounds, what top five sites per county, have the top usage. Highest usage is often times just along the roadside which is a bit frightening. Wine grapes have a lot of per pound pesticide use, but they use stuff like sulphur which is fairly non-toxic compared to something like bifenthrin or fipronil or anything with a -thrin ending...

Rice uses a lot of water and pesticides, almonds, peaches, prunes, walnuts, tomatoes, apples... A lot of the farmers use per pound  A LOT, but it's of relatively non-toxic stuff. Some people use less poundage of more toxic stuff. Anywho, I think my point is, it depends on where you live, what the individual farmer does... California produce is more heavily regulated than some other produce, so that's probably a good bet.

If I was going to buy something organic and I was on a limited budget, I would probably buy organic meat (unless you are a vegetarian), eggs and dairy products. The higher up in the food chain, the more concentrated the chemicals get (biomagnification), and you get to us, and it's super concentrated.

Anywho, that's my two cents worth...


What type of pesticides are found on grocery herbs?


Hello,

I am well aware of the pesticides being used on conventional produce such as vegetables and fruits; however, I am unaware of what pesticides are being used on herbs (parsley, basil, and cilantro).

foodnews.org gives figures on pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables, but fails to mention other food groups and specialty herbs and spices.

Thank you,

Av
I live in Canada. All herbs, as far as I can tell, are imported from the United States via A&P (through to the subsidiary here in Canada -- Food Basics).

Appearance alone can be deceiving, and so I think they have had their fair dousing of pesticides. On the account of indoor-growing, perhaps it is possibble, and in this case altogether plausible, that these herbs were grown indoors.

Herbs are very tempermental plants, so they need tender care and same to slightly deviating weather change.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency's Report on Conventional Pesticides Applied to Agricultural Crops in 1994-95, each year an estimated 911 million pounds of synthetic pesticides are applied to conventional agricultural crops throughout the United States. 
According to the EPA's Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances, about 2.2 billion pounds of pesticides are used annually in the U.S. Pesticides are used not just for conventional crops, but also in homes, gardens, schools, offices, grocery stores, golf courses and parks. 
In the study, "Food and the Environment: A Consumer's Perspective," 86 percent of respondents said they believe there is a connection between the health of the environment and their own well-being. 
Since 1945, total U.S. crop losses from insect damage have nearly doubled. During the same time, insecticide use has increased tenfold. Today, seventy-one known carcinogenic pesticides are sprayed on food crops. (In Harmony's report, "Pesticides: Losing Their Effectiveness") 
According to a 1997 study, up to 14 percent of all occupational injuries in the agricultural sector and 10 percent of all fatal injuries can be attributed to pesticides. (International Labor Organization) 
The EPA reports that Americans ingest 167 times more dioxin every day than the acceptable daily level. 
According to the U.S. General Accounting Office, only 1% of all imported fruits and vegetables are tested by the Food and Drug Administration for illegal pesticide residues.


Tea Drinkers: Is it normal to see a white foam when brewing loose-leaf green tea?


I had received some loose-leaf green tea from a friend who recently visited China and was wondering if it is normal to see white foam on top of my brewed tea. 

Could there be pesticide residues on my tea? I try to drink organic tea as much as possible, but don't want to throw away the tea which was a gift.

All honest answers appreciated. Thanks!

i have brewed all kinds of tea from an herbal shop where I live and have experienced little bubbles on the edges of the brewing "mug" where it's brewed.  I use the ingenuiTea pictured here.

I have brewed green tea, oolong, and some white tea from this herbal shop.  All tasted wonderful, but do remember some bubbles occasionally.  but not sure which specific ones.   I personally wouldn't be concerned.  Of course I'd have to taste it and smell it to make sure.

if you're concerned, I would just give the tea away to someone.  But I think you'll be fine.

oh, I forgot.  one thing you could do is drink the 3rd steeping of green tea rather than the first.  The first usually contains most of the caffeine and *might get rid of some pesticides.  The 2nd is just for insurance.

The 3rd one they say usually tastes just as good as the first.  Oh and congrats on the TC on vegetarian and vegan category.


I am eating grape tomatoes now, and they bother my stomach- will my tummy eventually adjust?


I am trying to eat healthier for the new year- my blood pressure is extremely high, and I want to be healthier for myself and my girlfriend. 

I like those mini tomatoes, sometimes called 'Cherry' or 'grape' tomatoes. However, I am not used to eating fresh vegetables nor fruit. After eating the tomatoes, my stomach hurts. Why is this? Is it because of pesticide residues, and/or perhaps infinitessimal amounts of insect feces? 

How can I avoid these stomach pains? I washed the tomatoes first, but evidently that wasn't enough. 

Any suggestions would be fantastic. Thanks.

If you're eating too many of them (especially by themselves) the acid will be playing up with your stomach.  Try combining them with less acidic foods.  If you've been eating a lot of processed foods your stomach may initially struggle with the healthier foods but it shouldn't take long for it to adjust and for you to feel much better for it.

Good luck with the lifestyle change.


This is for all you brilliant medical folks out there. How does a human body rid itself of pesticides that?


may still contaiminate a product that is consumed either by ingestion or smoking.    It doesn't take much research to find out that many times pesticide residue is, for whatever reason,  not completely removed from crops and is therefore included in whatever is being made from that crop.  In what form does it come out as waste in a person.  Assuming the amount was not enough to kill someone, what signs does the body exhibit if it has pesticides in its system?  The body gets rid of material that is either "not friendly" or that it doesn't need by urinating, bowel moments or sweating, so which form/forms do pesticides leave or is it absorbed into the blood steam?  Along the same lines, if a crop is infested with any insect, most importantly, the ones that are harmful to humans, and that insect is passed along in a product to be ingested or smoked, how does the human body respond and eliminate the "intruder"?  Thank you.

Well pesticides like essentially all toxins are eliminated from the body via the liver.  The liver has enzyme systems that can break down virtually any toxin or poison into an alternate form that is then removed from the body in the urine or stool.  Generally speaking toxins aren't typically eliminated intentionally via sweating although toxins may appear within sweat.  Now I know what you're thinking, why is it that people still die from poisoning?  This is because certain toxins attack areas of the body before they can be eliminated or they are present in such a high concentration that the detox enzymes are overwhelmed.

The body normally will not show symptoms of poisoning unless the toxins are present in high enough levels to overwhelm the liver's detox enzymes.  The most common type of pesticide poisoning is due to organophosphates.  The symptoms include excessive tear formation, diarrhea, low heart rate, and respiratory distress due to increased mucus production.  However, this type of poisoning only occurs when the victim spills a concentrated amount of the pesticide on their clothing or if they're unfortunate enough to be underneath of a crop duster.  I am not aware of any specific symptoms that people show from ingestion of pesticides.  This is because it takes a very high concentration of pesticides to affect us.  

Pesticides leave the body in a modified or broken down version of their original form.  The enzymes also attach other proteins to them to essentially "tag" them for elimination in the urine or stool.  

I think i've answered all of the questions you asked.  Shoot me an email if you need more clarification.  I hope this helps.


Is there any product to wash vegetables or fruits so they are clean ?


Condition of vegetables and fruits available from vendors is precarious, they are themselves dirty, use dirty sewage water for cleaning, other contaminants,etc. I'm looking for anything that can help me clean all dirt,contaminant,pesticide residue so I can eat healthier. Please help if someone knows if there is any product available for this and where can I buy it.  THX.

The FDA says just water.

But, if you insist on something else,  at the grocery store you can find a product in the produce aisle - a spray bottle of "fruit and vegetable
cleaner." When you look at the label for the ingredients, you will find the main ingredients are vinegar and water. You can make your own veggie wash solution very cheaply, for the cost of a spray bottle and a bottle of vinegar (which you probably already have in your cupboard, anyway.)

To make the solution, simply mix a few tablespoons of vinegar with the water in the spray bottle and you're in business for a whole lot less! (Don't worry, it doesn't leave a smell on your produce, and it works great!)


Should I buy organic seeds and nuts? Should I be concern with the levels of pesticide residue?


Would like to save money with non organic, but will buy it if they are high residues in them.
----------

The amount of pesticide in non-organic foods is less than you would get from walking on grass in a park, or even your own lawn.
