Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Concentrations of 14 polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDEs) and 28 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) congers were measured in 137 samples of fish and meat from Nanjing, a city in the Yangtze River Delta, China. Total concentrations of PBDEs were less in fish (mean of 180pg/g ww; range 8.0-1100pg/g ww), but more in non fish foods (mean of 180pg/g ww; range 15-950pg/g ww) than those reported from other countries. The total dietary intake of PBDEs and PCBs by humans were 9.9ng PBDE/d and 870ng PCB/d, respectively. The daily intake by a 60kg adult of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin equivalents (TEQ(WHO)) from PCBs was estimated to be 49pg (PCB)TEQ(WHO)/d (0.82pg (PCB)TEQ(WHO)/kg bw), which is less than the tolerable daily intake suggested by the World Health Organization (WHO). The daily intake of meat and fish accounted for 57.2% and 42.8% of the total intake of (PCB)TEQ(WHO).
