Why are POPs bad for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Persistent Organic Pollutants, which includes DDT and PCBs, can cause disease and abnormalities in both humans and wildlife. “In people, reproductive, developmental, behavioral, neurologic, endocrine, and immunologic adverse health effects have been linked to POPs,” according to the EPA. POPs “biomagnify,” or transfer from animal to animal as predators eat prey or even as herbivores eat contaminated plants. Eventually, POPs will build up in the animals at the top of food chain (i.e. humans) and cause severe health damage.
