Abstract
A critical review is presented on the use of human pollutant burden patterns in the evaluation of environmental problems associated with toxic substances and pesticides. Human body burden patterns may serve as monitors of the environment, as indicators of biological response, as inputs into environmental standards development and appraisal, as channel markers for research, and as safeguards for recycling technology. Reference is made to investigations intended to determine whether blood, urine, hair, excreta and placenta may be assayed for selected trace elements or polychlorinated biphenyls, and recommendations are made for studies of pollutant interactions.
