Abstract

The DDT was one of the most commonly used pesticide in mid 20th century and even though its use is banned it is detectible in water, soil, fish, meat and milk products. Using comet assay and micronucleus test we have managed to detect genotoxic properties of this pesticide on human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Results obtained in this research indicate the need for further environmental and food monitoring, and cytogenetic research using sensitive methods in detection of primary genome damage after exposure to DDT to establish the impact of such chemicals on human genome and health.
