Furthermore, the vast majority of beef, veal, pork, and lamb is not imported. This demonstrates that the occurrence of banned pesticides in protein products is from past agricultural practices in the United States. Once again, these data demonstrate that USDA-certified organic protein products do contain multiple organochlorine pesticides and industrial ^ The occurrence of toluene and xylene contaminants in food products could also be associated with styrene plastics. /3 :3 o e U u Q Q s V P3 g -o 2 U a, ffl a PQ 2 '5J VH ^ O c CD 3 ^H tin

Usda. " Most people are well aware of the USDA recommendations, but individual choices obviously dictate the degree to which these recommendations are actually followed. Individuals who attempt to maintain a balanced diet must also realize that they will consume a mixture of chemicals that is unique to each food group. Therefore, the chemical diversity of an individual's diet is dictated by the foods that person consumes. To evaluate an individual's exposure to chemical mixtures, it was necessary to determine how frequently pesticide and industrial chemicals were found in each food product.

This industrial chemical was banned in 1979 but is still a widespread contaminant in soil, sediment, and water resources. In addition to the previously summarized data, specific synthetic chemical concentrations in dairy products for all market baskets are given in Appendixes 4-1 through 4-7. 2 SYNTHETIC CHEMICALS IN PROTEIN PRODUCTS The pesticides found in protein products are given in Table 4-3, and the industrial chemicals are given in Table 4-4. Relative to the distribution of chemicals in protein products, the top-10 synthetic chemicals are summarized in Figure 4-2.
