In a study conducted by National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources, India for the residues of endosulfan in the water and fish samples from Himalayan region, no such residues were detected in fish samples collected from snowfed and rainfed rivers of Kumaun Himalayas. The report thus clearly states endosulfan degrades easily without leaving any toxic effects on living beings.
This study is done by Dr. Manpreet Kaur in 2008 for detection of residues of endosulfan in fresh water fish species in Punjab, India. After detailed studies it has been concluded that no residues of endosulfan have been detected in any fish samples thus proving it safe for use.
Bruce McKay was a rogue cop who scared the living daylights out of Liko Kenney, who shot him after McKay violated Town protocol on pursuit and OC Spray as he did throughout his career with Defendant's knowledge of his dangerous and threatening propensities..... Then a multiple felon dirtbag named Gregory Floyd murdered Liko Kenney and NH AG Kelly Ayotte -- now a U.S. Senator of all things -- covered it all up. But not for long.
This study was undertaken to know the presence of pesticide residues in river water & sediment samples collected from the major rivers across India which are traditionally used as a source for irrigation. The study aimed to identify the presence of residues of most commonly used pesticide, endosulfan. The results showed no detection of endosulfan in any of the samples analyzed.
A detailed study done by Atmakaru Ramesh and Ambalatharasu Vijayalakshmi , Department on Pesticfide Chemistry to evaluate the residues of Endosulfan which may have accumulated in environmental samples due to regular aerial spraying application of endosulfan on cashew leaf plantation for a period of 20 years. All the samples were analyzed for the totoal residuesof endosulfan, endosulfan sulfate and also the potential hydrolysis product endosulfan diol, using gas chromatography with electron capture detection. The Analysis of soil, dried leaf samples, cow milk, fish and water showed negligible residues of endosulfan.
Hence, the report has dismissed the link between endosulfan and the disease in Kasargod .
The WHO while setting guidelines for drinking water quality conducted a study for Endosulfan concentrations in public drinking water. Studies reveal that endosulfan usually occurs at concentrations in drinking-water well below those at which toxic effects can be expected to occur, and it is therefore not considered necessary to derive a guideline value for endosulfan in drinking water.
Yamuna, a prominent river of India covers an extensive area from Yamunotri glacier through six Indian states. Residues of endosulfan were analyzed in water of river Yamuna along its stretch passing through. The studies concluded that endosulfan remained below detection limits. Hence, the report clearly states the absence of endosulfan accumulation in water.
On the basis of the report of scientific panel on contaminants in the food chain, it is concluded that in contrast to most related organochlorine pesticides, endosulfan has a less pronounced affinity to lipids. Consequently, bio-magnification and bio-accumulation of endosulfan, in terrestrial food chains, is less likely to occur. Moreover, Endosulfan is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed to the kidneys and liver and to a lesser extent to other tissues causing no harm to the body.
This study reports the enrichment nd isolation of a microbial culturew capable of degrading endosulfan with minimal production of endosulfan sulfate, the toxic metabolite of endosulfan, from tropical acid soil. The results of this study suggest that this novel strain is a valuable source of potent endosulfan- degrading enzymes for use in enzymatic bioremedation. This clearly states that endosulfan does not bio- accumulate due to the microbial culture in the soil.
This analysis deals with finding the residues of Endosulfan in blood. Researchers, Atmakuru Ramesh and Perumal Elumalai Ravi tested the blood samples of workers and people exposed to Endosulfan for a long time. The study concludes the absence of endosulfan residues in the blood reports.
