In a duplicate study during 1987-1991, 478 24-h duplicate samples from 14 homes for elderly people and 10 homes for youth were investigated for their contents of selected harmful substances. The analyses covered 45 active substances of pesticides, 17 PCB-congeners as well as lead, cadmium, and nitrate contents. Pesticides could be detected only in 15% of(More)
The content of six selected indicator polychlorobiphenyl (PCB) congeners (nos 28, 52, 101, 138, 153, and 180) in 159 samples of total diet obtained from 20 different people has been determined by capillary gas chromatography. The congeners most frequently found were nos 138 and 153. The mean daily intake of the sum of the three congeners 138, 153, and 180(More)
