During the period 1969-71 samples of human body fat were taken during routine necropsies on 201 subjects over 5 years old and 20 stillborn babies and infants under 5 years old, and analysis was carried out for organochlorine pesticide residues. By comparing the results from this period with those from similar studies undertaken in 1963-4 and 1965-7, it is clear that a downward trend continues.
