Part Description

LP15060-4   Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene
Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) is the primary metabolite of Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT). After World War II, DDT was heavily used as an insecticide in agricultural and household settings. It was a main component of garden sprays, vegetable dusts and applied to carpets to eradicate fleas. DDT was banned in the United States in 1972, but can still be used in emergency health situations to combat mosquitoes infected with malaria and yellow fever, and by prescription to treat body lice. DDT and DDE are slow to decompose and remain in the environment for a very long time. DDT and DDE are rarely detected in groundwater since they are nearly insoluble in water, but adhere tightly to soil particles where they can remain for many years. DDE is at least as toxic as DDT. Exposure to DDE is mostly by ingesting contaminated food bought in countries where the use of DDT is still prevalent. Foods commonly found to be polluted with DDT and DDE include root crops, leafy vegetables, fatty meats, fish, and poultry. Other sources of DDT and DDE in the environment can be found in contaminated air, dust, and water near waste sites and landfills with high levels of DDT and DDE.[http://www.unce.unr.edu/publications/files/nr/2003/sp0316.pdf] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
