A method is described which detects in blood 6 of the 8 isomers or metabolites of chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides known to occur in the fat of people in the general population of the United States, and it detects 2 others in people with occupational or acute exposure. The concentration of chlorinated insecticides and related materials as detected by this method follows the pattern of exposure and recovery and thus permits toxicological evaluation.
