Bisphenol A (BPA) in China: a review of sources, environmental levels, and potential human health impacts.
TLDR
Due to potential human health risks from long-term exposure to BPA, body burden of the contaminant should be monitored. Expand
DDT contamination from indoor residual spraying for malaria control.
TLDR
Concerns are raised regarding the potential health effects in residents living in the immediate environment following DDT IRS, and a combination of potential dietary and non-dietary pathways of uptake. Expand
Long-term decreases in persistent organic pollutants in South African coastal waters detected from beached polyethylene pellets.
TLDR
Concentrations of all three POPs decreased over the last two decades, although this signal was less clear for PCBs, and further monitoring is needed to assess trends in this family of compounds. Expand
High levels of DDT in breast milk: intake, risk, lactation duration, and involvement of gender.
TLDR
There were indications from DDT-sprayed villages that first- born female infants drink milk with more ΣDDT than first-born male infants, and vice versa for multipara male and female infants, suggesting gender involvement on levels of DDT in breast milk - requiring further investigation. Expand
DDT and Malaria Prevention: Addressing the Paradox
TLDR
There are situations where DDT will provide the best achievable health benefit, but maintaining that DDT is safe ignores the cumulative indications of many studies, and addressing the paradox from a centrist-DDT position and invoking precaution will help design choices for healthier lives. Expand
Chlorinated, brominated, and fluorinated organic pollutants in Nile crocodile eggs from the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
TLDR
It is highly unlikely that the concentrations of pollutants measured in the present study would have caused or substantially contributed towards the mortalities observed, and it is believed that the BFR and PFCs data represent the first published results for any crocodile egg. Expand
Halogenated pollutants in terrestrial and aquatic bird eggs: converging patterns of pollutant profiles, and impacts and risks from high levels.
TLDR
High levels of DDT in bird eggs, eggshell thinning in the Cattle Egrets, and the apparent absence of breeding piscivore birds in the sprayed area are strongly suggestive of negative impacts from DDT spraying for Malaria control. Expand
DDT residues in water, sediment, domestic and indigenous biota from a currently DDT-sprayed area.
TLDR
Concern is raised that both water and food may be major routes of human exposure to DDT and metabolites, thereby posing possible adverse human health implications to the local communities. Expand
