Abstract

Pesticides are some of the most commonly used chemicals in the United States and therefore have become very common contaminants in the environment. The health effects of many non-persistent pesticides in heavily exposed and general human populations are not yet known. The extensive use of these compounds has created a great interest in developing laboratory and epidemiology studies on possible health risks. We have recently developed methods for the exposure assessment pilot of the NCI/EPA/NIEHS Agricultural Health Study to analyze blood and urine samples collected from farmers and their families. These samples were collected before, during, and after pesticide application. A target group of non-persistent insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides have been identified and isotope dilution mass spectrometric methods were used to measure these pesticides and their metabolites in the biological samples.
