PCBs are known to accumulate in humans, and health advisories are often issued about consuming wildlife from heavily contaminated environments.

Residues in wildlife can only be transferred to humans by consuming contaminated tissues. As with most chlorinated hydrocarbons. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Eisler, Ronald, Planar PCB hazards to fish, wildlife, and invertebrates.

PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, are highly toxic industrial compounds. They pose serious health risks to fetuses, babies and children, who may suffer developmental and neurological problems from prolonged or repeated exposure to small amounts of PCBs.

These chemicals are harmful to adults as well. Although they were banned from manufacture in the United States in. Polychlorinated biphenyl hazards to fish, wildlife, and invertebrates: A synoptic review. Biological Report 85 (), United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Washington, D.C.

compounds, including polychlorinated biphenyls, were found, but concentrations were low when compared to other species. Lead was not detected in any of the eggs and mercury was only detectable in two of the four eggs. It does not appear that any of these contaminants, with the possible exception of PCBs, were responsible for non—viable eggs.A polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) is an organic chlorine compound with the formula C 12 H 10−x Cl lorinated biphenyls were once widely deployed as dielectric and coolant fluids in electrical apparatus, carbonless copy paper and in heat transfer fluids.

Because of their longevity, PCBs are still widely in use, even though their manufacture has declined drastically Chemical formula: C₁₂H10−xClₓ.Non-dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (NDL-PCBs) are ubiquitous in the environment. Humans are exposed to NDL-PCBs mainly via food.

Exposure to NDL-PCBs is suspected to be of concern to human health. This chapter discusses the NDL-PCB sources, their environmental transport and occurrence in food items. Human groups with high exposure are Cited by: 4.
