Abstract
Small quantities of DDT and DDE have been found in the body fat of humans. DDT has had wide use on food and forage crops and for control of insect-borne diseases. DDT and DDE were found in all meals analyzed, but in small quantities, and are not considered a toxicological health hazard. In the case of foods intended for human consumption, the DDE content as well as the DDT content should be determined.
