The concept of storage or body burden is more important in relation to the chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides than to other groups of synthetic pesticides because of the relatively greater persistence of the former in human tissues. For this reason, the present paper deals with the chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides, although limited consideration will also be given to the organic phosphorus and carbamate compounds.
