Persistence of polychlorinated biphenyls in the milk of exposed cows

, : Persistence of polychlorinated biphenyls in the milk of exposed cows. Veterinary Record 90(4): 100-102

The effects of PCB include hepatotoxicity, induction of enzymes which accelerate the metabolism of drugs and insecticides, activation of some organophosphate pesticides, and possibly steroid degradation. PCB are not converted to a water-soluble form, and, like the chlorinated hydrocarbons, become concentrated in fat depots. They have been detected in human milk, hair and fat, in the milk of many species including cows, and in many foodstuffs.
