Current panorama of persisten organic pollutants

A group of anthropogenic substances known as Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), has a negative impact on the environment and health. Its main effects in humans are: testicular cancer, breast cancer, and others; oligospermia, problems in learning and development, and hormonal alterations. In the St...

Its main effects in humans are: testicular cancer, breast cancer, and others; oligospermia, problems in learning and development, and hormonal alterations. In the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, which entered into force on May 17, 2001, mea- sures were established to eliminate the production and use of persistent bioaccumulative toxics in organisms among which are: aldrin, chlordane, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, hexachlorobenzene, mirex, toxaphene, and poly- chlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). This article aims to describe the current situation of POPs, with an emphasis on the environmental and health problems associated with exposure, as well as the measures that have been developed world wide and also at a national level for the control and elimination of POP. Un grupo de sustancias de carácter antropogénico conocido como Compuestos Orgánicos Persistentes (COPs), tiene impacto negativo sobre el medioambiente y la salud. Sus principales efectos en humanos son: cáncer de testículo, cáncer de mamas, y otros; oliogospermia, problemas en el desarrollo y aprendizaje, y alteraciones hor- monales. En el Convenio de Estocolmo sobre Contaminantes Orgánicos Persistentes, que entró en vigor el 17 de mayo de 2001, se establecieron medidas para eliminar la producción y uso de tóxicos persistentes y bioacumulables en los organismos entre los cuales están: aldrin, clordano, dieldrina, endrina, heptacloro, hexaclorobenceno, mirex, toxafeno y Bifenilos Policlorados (PCBs). El presente artículo tiene como objetivo describir el panorama actual de los COPs, con énfasis en los problemas ambientales y de salud asociados a la exposición, además de las medidas que se desarrollan a nivel mundial y nacional para su control y eliminación. 2012-06-01 2019-03-19T16:16:15Z 2019-03-19T16:16:15Z http://purl.org/coar/resource_type/c_6501 http://purl.org/coar/version/c_970fb48d4fbd8a85 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/biociencias/article/view/2796 http://hdl.handle.net/10901/14751 spa https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/biociencias/article/view/2796/2216 Revistas - Ciencias de la Salud http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/co/ Atribución-NoComercial-SinDerivadas 2.5 Colombia application/pdf Universidad Libre Biociencias; Vol 7 No 1 (2012): Biociencias; 81-88 Biociencias; Vol. 7 Núm. 1 (2012): Biociencias; 81-88 2390-0512 0124-0110
