  • fate of residues
  • 3. Information on the nature, level and fate of residues following washing, blanching, storage, and thermal processing of treated crops. (inchem.org)
  • FATE OF RESIDUES In Animals One adult female and one adult male albino rat were each dosed for 7 consecutive days with 14 C-dinocap, labelled uniformly in the aromatic ring (Rohm and Haas, 1970). (inchem.org)
  • FATE OF RESIDUES In animals Lactating dairy cattle were fed continuously during 3-4 weeks with food containing 10, 20 and 30 mg/kg thiabendazole. (inchem.org)
  • fruits and vegetables
  • In 1968, further information was required on (1) the rates and frequencies of application, pre-harvest intervals, and the resultant residues from different countries and (2) the nature and persistence of the residues in fruits and vegetables (fresh and processed) (FAO/WHO, 1969). (inchem.org)
  • foods
  • Pears, grapes, apples, and pre-packed salads were among the most heavily pesticide-contaminated foods in the U.K. (mercola.com)
  • Foods with traces of more than one pesticide are potentially the biggest concern, says Mole, who suggests anyone considering switching to organic should prioritize these. (mercola.com)
  • 9 It shows the foods that most commonly contain more than one pesticide residue in the U.K. (mercola.com)
  • The "best" list, below shows foods that are least likely to contain more than one pesticide residue. (mercola.com)
  • Consumers may also choose to purchase organic foods , which are grown and processed without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. (orst.edu)
  • 0.05
  • Much lower residues of diazinon in milk were found by Hastie (1963) who reported 0.04 - 0.05 mg/kg 1 day after cows were sprayed with 0.05 and 0.1% diazinon emulsion and less than 0.01 mg/kg within 2 days. (inchem.org)
  • Regulation
  • Chlorpropham is within the maximum residue limit regulation in Germany germination inhibitors approved for the treatment of potatoes for the purpose of preservation after harvest. (wikipedia.org)
  • Exposure
  • Exposure of the general population to these residues most commonly occurs through consumption of treated food sources, or being in close contact to areas treated with pesticides such as farms or lawns. (wikipedia.org)
  • See also Pesticide exposure raises risk of Parkinson's BBC News. (wikipedia.org)
  • Certain reproductive effects in fertility, growth, and development for males and females have been linked specifically to OP pesticide exposure. (wikipedia.org)
  • In females menstrual cycle disturbances, longer pregnancies, spontaneous abortions, stillbirths, and some developmental effects in offspring have been linked to OP pesticide exposure. (wikipedia.org)
  • These syndromes result after acute and chronic exposure to OP pesticides. (wikipedia.org)
  • traces
  • The other thing we don't know about is the combined effect of exposures …Throughout the course of a day, people may eat several different types of produce, each of which may bear traces of one or more pesticides. (mercola.com)
  • Residues are the traces pesticides leave behind in treated products. (fao.org)
  • toxic
  • Pesticides are potentially toxic to humans and can have both acute and chronic health effects, depending on the quantity and ways in which a person is exposed. (fao.org)
  • In order to assess the risks associated with pesticides on human health, the EPA analyzed individual pesticide active ingredients as well as the common toxic effect that groups of pesticides have, called the cumulative risk assessment. (wikipedia.org)
  • data
  • The tissue and organ residue data, Table 2, show that there was no tendency for residues to concentrate in any particular tissue or organ. (inchem.org)
  • Some additional data were obtained on residues in milk of dairy cattle after continuously administering feed containing 10-30 mg thiabendazole/kg. (inchem.org)
  • Information on pesticide degradation is available from required test data. (wikipedia.org)
  • urine
  • Following oral doses of 0.7 to 1.5 mg/kg, tissue residues reached maximum values within 8 hours and residues were rapidly excreted within 24 hours, primarily in the urine. (inchem.org)
  • organic
  • Eating organic is one of the best ways to lower your overall pesticide burden. (mercola.com)
  • The second-generation pesticides were composed of synthetic organic compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Organizations regulating organic products may restrict the use of certain pesticides and fertilizers in farming. (wikipedia.org)
  • This class of molecules includes everything likely to be considered edible, and include most pesticides and toxins too, therefore the term "organic" and, especially, the term "inorganic" (sometimes wrongly used as a contrast by the popular press) as they apply to organic chemistry is an equivocation fallacy when applied to farming, the production of food, and to foodstuffs themselves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Early consumers interested in organic food would look for non-chemically treated, non-use of unapproved pesticides, fresh or minimally processed food. (wikipedia.org)
