Version 2.77


Methoxychlor is an organochlorine pesticide that has a comparatively low toxicity and transitory persistence in biological systems. Since the ban on Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) in 1972, the use of methoxychlor has gone up. Methoxychlor is used as a general purpose pesticide in agriculture, households, on ornamental plants, and to kill parasites on dairy and beef cattle. There is no evidence that methoxychlor damages genetic material or is an animal carcinogen. While methoxychlor does not bioaccumulate in the tissue of mammals, it is very persistent in soil and has a half-live of more than six months.[] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
