Abstract

The industrialization of the agricultural sector is increasing, but many times it caused a burden on natural systems, processes, and people. Endosulfan posed many problems to mankind and caused many neurological disorders, DNA damage, characteristic liver changes, and so on. Pesticides after spraying will stay for some time in the soil and if plants and animals are raised on the land, definitely absorb the pesticide left over on the soil. These pesticide residues will get metabolized in the body of the animals and converted into metabolic products and excreted through natural secretions. The pesticide residues will also definitely get excreted through the milk and when the milk is converted into products it also may contain the pesticide residues. An effort was made to analyze the milk samples for endosulfan in Endosulfan-prone areas in Kasargod District, Kerala, India. Forty samples were analyzed and in all the samples the levels of α-Endosulfan, β−Endosulfan, and Endosulfan sulfate were absent at 1ppb level.
