Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) and sigmaDDT (i.e. p,p'-DDT+p,p'-DDE+p,p'-DDD) concentrations were determined from the analysis of 115 Welsh breast milk samples collected in 190 and 1991.
Fifty PCB congeners were screened, of which 24 were identified in most samples.
The PCB congener pattern was consistent between individual milk samples, with IUPAC congeners 28, 138, 153 and 180 being the most abundant and accounting for an average of 50% of the sigmaPCB concentrations determined.
