    Contacts of humans with chemicals from the environment occur via air, water or food.

    In the past most attention was paid to the contamination of water.

    Well developed and stringent legislation exists in most countries, although health impairments never occurred from environmental chemicals in drinking water.

    Xenobiotics in water mainly have a marker function for the general pollution of the environment.

    Therefore measures to detect and eliminate the sources of contamination are often inappropriately taken.

    For some persistent and (usually) lipophilic xenobiotics in food, especially from animal origin, acts as carrier.
