Persistent pesticides, which primarily consist of organochlorine pesticides, are considered persistent because they are stable in the environment and resist being broken down. The ability of organochlorine pesticides to persist in the environment made them highly effective and therefore widely used in agriculture and insect control efforts during the ss.

Con¿rmation of Poisoning Organochlorine pesticides and or their metabolites can sometimes be identi¿ed in blood by gas-liquid chromatographic examination of samples taken within a few days of signi¿cant pesticide absorption. Such tests are performed by a limited number.

Further Review of Certain Persistent Organochlorine Pesticides Used in Great Britain, 20 (HMSO, ). by: Only a small number of relatively non-persistent organochlorine pesticides (e.g., endosulfan) are currently in use.

However, residues of highly persistent organochlorine pesticides remaining in. Aromatic organo-chlorines like DDT, endosulfan, chlordane, aldrin, dieldrin, and endrin, mirex are used as pesticides.

They are designated in the list of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) due to their toxicity and environmental persistence. Organo-chlorines like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are used as coolants and insulators in transformers. Chapter 4 discussed organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), a group of chemicals that was widely used in the past, but had many problems including broad spectrum toxicity that affected both target pests and nontarget species along with a very long persistence in the environment.

None of the other organochlorine pesticides were associated with PD in these analyses. Conclusions: These results provide some support for an increased risk of Parkinson disease with exposure to dieldrin, but chance or exposure correlation with other less persistent pesticides could contribute to our findings.

From the s onwards, further increase in food production was allowed by the introduction of synthetic crop protection chemicals.
