Chlorinated hydrocarbon residues in the adipose tissue of the population of BiaŁystok and its environs



Chlorinated hydrocarbon residues in the adipose tissue of the population of BiaŁystok and its environs



Roczniki Panstwowego Zakladu Higieny 40(2): 125-130



In the perirenal fat tissue of 36 representatives of this population (20 men and 16 women aged 41 to 92 years) the levels were determined of the residues of alpha-, beta-, and gamma-HCH, DDE, DDD, DDT and sigma DDT. The obtained mean values were 0.012, 0.013, 0.007, 1.421, 0.035, 0.327 and 1.783 mg/kg of fat, respectively. The obtained results were severalfold lower than those found in Poland in the 1970s. The fat of the human fat tissue contained high amounts of beta-HCH as compared to other isomers of hexachlorocyclohexane, and high amount of DDE in sigma DDT. In the fat of men the residues of DDE and sigma DDT were present in greater amounts than in women. On the other hand, no effect of age was noted on the levels of the residues of chlorinated hydrocarbons in human fat.
