At present, the alleviation of stress caused by climate change and environmental contaminants is a crucial issue. Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) is a persistent organic pollutant (POP) and an organochlorine, which causes significant health problems in humans. The stress caused by cadmium (Cd) and the toxicity of DDT have direct effects on th...
Environmental geochemistry and health
Lindane and DDT (1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophenyl)ethane) are pesticides from the group of persistent organic pollutants. These compounds, due to lipophilic properties, accumulate in tissues of organisms, are transmitted through the food chain and ultimately threaten human health. The long-term use of pesticides led to soil and water pollutio...

Here we compare bioaccumulation factors in marine organisms to partition ratios in marine debris for dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane and polychlorinated biphenyls. Both organochlorines are synthetic persistent organic pollutants emitted into the environment since the beginning of the last century in approximately equal amounts. Their vast use and d...
Med de sex sökhundar som deltog i projektet har försök med DDT och trikloretylen (TCE) genomförts på en så kallad sökkarusell inomhus och på DDT i fält. Försöken på sökkarusell visade att det är betydligt svårare för hundarna att lära in och detektera det mindre flyktiga ämnet DDT än det lättflyktiga TCE. Det innebär att det kommer krävas avsevärt ...
Reviews on Environmental Health
Some historical aspects on late lessons from early warnings on cancer risks with lost time for prevention are discussed. One current example is the cancer-causing effect from radiofrequency (RF) radiation. Studies since decades have shown increased human cancer risk. The fifth generation, 5G, for wireless communication is about to be implemented wo...

Early human development
Breast milk is often used as an environmental bioindicator since it serves as an important medium to accumulate organochlorine pesticides. The main aim of this study is to determine the level of organochlorine pesticides in human breast milk collected from three districts of southwestern Ethiopia (Asendabo, Deneba, and Serbo) at three times points ...

Globally, type-2 diabetes mellitus is increasing in epidemic proportions. A major cause of concern in India is the increasing incidence of cases, especially troubling is the observed increase in younger age groups with no risk factors. New evidence suggests that many environmental factors, such as air pollution, persistent organic pollutants (POPs)...

Resistance to currently utilized chemical insecticidal agents represents a significant threat to public health and food security worldwide. Better understanding the neurophysiological effects of available and candidate insecticidal molecules is valuable for characterizing the mechanisms of insecticide resistance, as well as the design and study of ...
