This report by the Advisory Committee on Pesticides and other Toxic Chemicals [cf. RAE A 53] contains further findings on the risks arising from the use of persistent organochlorine insecticides in Britain.

The insecticides considered are aldrin, toxaphene, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin, endosulfan, endrin, DDD (TDE) and heptachlor, and the scope of the survey is extended to include uses in Further review of certain persistent organo-chlorìne pesticides used in Great Britain.

In the book “Silent Spring” many pesticidal effects such as bioaccumulation, resistance, extensive contamination of freshwater and ecological imbalances were addressed (Carson, ).?doi=rjet Harrison, R.

Introduction The Supplementary Report to the Review of the Persistent Organochlorine Pesticides1 indicated that endrin is used in Great Britain to a very much smaller extent than aldrin, dieldrin, DDT or BHC, although it is effective against a wide range of pests.

By far the main use of endrin in this country B. Persistent Organic Pollutants. Until recently, most research work on endocrine disruptors has been done on persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic substances, many of which are mentioned in Table 1 (dioxins, PCBs, organochlorine pesticides, etc.) A pesticide is a substance or mixture of substances used for preventing, controlling, or lessening the damage caused by a pest.

A pesticide may be a chemical substance, biological agent (such as a virus or bacteria), antimicrobial, disinfectant or device used against any pest. Pests include insects, plant pathogens, weeds, mollusks, birds, mammals, fish, nematodes and microbes that compete  › Home › Encyclopedia.

Organochlorine is used mainly as insecticides. Human body burden due to organochlorine pesticides results from the universal presence of these contaminants in the environment. This constitutes a major public health concern; indeed, organochlorines have been linked with cancer, asthma, diabetes, and growth disorders in ://   and persistent organochlorine residues.

Probably the most significant ‘early warning’ was the publication of Silent spring by Rachel Carson (). This book compiled the existing evidence of previous early warnings of the effects of organochlorine pesticides on fish and wildlife and warned particularly of the threat posed by these chemicals in The records of one pack of Otter Hounds hunting in southwest England are examined for the period to as well as the records of all packs active in Britain between and The hunting success per unit effort varies from year to year depending on changes in hunting conditions but longer term changes can also be ://   2.
