What's up with endosulfan. Lately, we have received many questions about endosulfan, mainly on which products and uses are still registered. There is a lot of confusion right now. We'll try to answer the "who, what, where, when, why" so we are all on the same page.

Reyna L. Camacho-Morales, José E. Sánchez, in Mushroom Biotechnology, Endosulfan biodegradation by fungi. Endosulfan is an insecticide that is applied extensively to coffee, tea, and cotton crops, among others. In its commercial form, endosulfan is composed of two stereoisomers, α and β endosulfan, in a ratio.

Endosulfan: It is a widely-banned pesticide with hazardous effects on human genetic and endocrine systems. Endosulfan became a highly controversial agrichemical due to its acute toxicity, potential for bioaccumulation, and role as an endocrine disruptor.

Endosulfan is widely distributed in the environment and can be detected in all media, soil, sediments, air, water, and vegetation, over long distances from the application source. Levels of endosulfan in the air samples are very variable depending on the location.

This book is intended for public health officials, physicians, toxicologists, and other interested individuals and groups with an overall perspective on the toxicology of endosulfan.

The content of the book is divided into 8 chapters, each of which discusses various aspects of endosulfan together with residual data of endosulfan from South. Total endosulfan residue levels in postmortem samples from carcass of poisoned dairy cows were ppm in rumen content &, & ppm in liver, kidney, & muscle tissue, respectively.

Analysis of milk from cows which survived the poisoning revealed level of greater than 1 ppm endosulfan immediately following the intoxication.
