Significant negative correlations were observed between [gamma]-chlordane and RDW (Spearman coefficient, r: -0.39, p-value: 0.03), [gamma]-chlordane and VCM (r: -0.41, p-value: 0.03), p,p'-DDT and eosinophils (r: -0.28, p-value: 0.01), p,p'-DDD and RDW (r: -0.40, p-value: 0.01), endosulfan I and HCM (r: -0.24, p-value: 0.05), and endosulfan II and lymphocytes (r: -0.25, p-value: 0.05).
Trace levels of a-HCH, Y-HCH, endosulfan I, endosulfan II, endosulfan sulfate, heptachlor, heptachlor epoxide, p,p'-DDE, chlorpyrifos, cypermethrin and cyfluthrin were detected in water with the averages of (0.77-0.114, 1.15-1.26, 0.78-1.31, 0.80-1.44, 0.15-1.04, 0.91-1.24, 0.84-1.53, 0.60-1.44, 0.12-1.03, 0.26-1.04 and 0.11-0.23) ng/l, respectively.
The mixed standard of OCPs (methoxychlor, [alpha]-endosulfan, [beta]-endosulfan, [alpha]-, [beta]-, [gamma]-, and [delta]-hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH), heptachlor, dieldrin, aldrin, endrin, endosulfan sulphate, p,p'-DDE, p,p'-DDD, p,p'-DDT, and gamma-chlordane) was obtained from Supelco (PA, USA).
Bacillus mediated degradation of Lambdacyhalothrin observed in this study is consistent with the findings of Osama el Gialanielsaid et al., (2010) who have compared the endosulfan degradation potential of mutant strains of Bacillus sp.
Aldrin, Lindane, Dieldrin, DDT and Endosulfan were detected in milk.
This suggests recent inputs of fresh technical endosulfan or lack of significant degradation [8, 9].
In all, eleven pesticides (diazinon, chlorpyrifos, dimethoate, methoxychlor, malathion, aldrin, cyfluthrin, permethrin, fenvalerate, endosulfan, and DDT) were detected in the honey samples (Table 1).
Pesticides endosulfan, glyphosate, pentachlorophenol, permethrin, propoxur, and paraoxon and the metabolites AMPA (aminomethylphosphonic acid, from glyphosate) and endosulfan lactone (from endosulfan) as well as etoposide were purchased to Sigma-Aldrich, Mexico (Table 1).
It added that there was also deception on the part of the Philippine Span Asia due to the existence of two cargo manifests exist - one with no declaration of the toxic substance endosulfan, and another declaring the same.
