ULTRA News: Dutch Seven & WHO PCB Mixes

Monday, October 01, 2007

Numerous scientific studies from around the world have proven the adverse effects that PCBs have on human health. One study, the "Dutch PCB/Dioxin Study" began in 1989 and measured the effects of PCBs on the growth and development of children. From that study came the DUTCH Seven, a list of PCB congeners that were found to be most prevalent in the study subjects, and were also found to be the most toxic. The World Health Organization (WHO) and other global monitoring bodies continue to study the effects of PCBs on animals and humans, to identify toxic PCB levels in the environment, and to facilitate and effect the clean-up of contaminated sites.
