Contents Notes
"Mirex is an insecticide which has a specific geographic region of application in the United States. The Mirex Special Study was undertaken in 1975 as part of the National Human Monitoring Program in an attempt to obtain information about the levels of mirex in human adipose tissues in areas of mirex application. A sample of human adipose tissue specimens was selected from the mirex treated areas in eight southern States. Detectable levels of mirex were found in 141 chemical analyses of 624 human adipose tissue specimens in the sample. The data were analyzed with respect to three demographic variables (race, age, and sex) and two geographic variables (Census Division and State). Geographic divisions appear to be the most salient factors in levels of concentration of mirex in the sample studied."--Abstract.
