The present study did not observe clear associations between any organochlorines and risk of breast cancer, but there was a slight, nonsignificant excess risk with heptachlor
The challenge at hand dealt with four specific contaminants that FPL wants to flush underground--the pesticide heptachlor
and industrial solvents ethylbenzene, toluene, and tetrachloroethylene.
However, HCH and Heptachlor
was above the MRLs of Codex Alimentarius.
The replacement termiticides were as deadly to termites as chlordane and heptachlor
, but the little buggers could detect the replacements.
Organochlorine pesticides (dieldrin, DDT, DDE, DDD and heptachlor
epoxide) were detected in 97.

in 1968 along with the majority of the chlorinated hydrocarbon family (CH) which included aldrin, dieldrine, heptachlor
aplant protection products: aclonifen, bifenox, cypermethrin, dicofol, heptachlor
Then they tested the samples in the lab for several types of legacy pesticides, including chlordane and related chemical products such as heptachlor
and breakdown products of chlordane; lindane; aldrin and dieldrin; DDT and its degradation products (DDD and DDE); and mirex.
and toxaphene, industrial chemicals such as PCBs
Organochlorine pesticide content was carried out by means of gas chromatography for aldrin, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor
epoxide, DDT and lindane-2,4D (17).
The most predominant occurrences were observed for DDT, DDE, DDD, heptachlor
, toxaphene and various endrin compounds.
