Pesticides belong to persistent pollutants and pose a potential danger to people's health. The conditions of storing and utilizing the wastes do not meet, in many cases, the sanitary-and-hygienic requirements. The control over residual pesticides in foodstuffs and in the environment is indicative, in an number of cases, of that they exceed the admissible content values. The methodical basis does not ensure, to the full extent, a quantitative analysis of pesticides. An evaluation of risk within the system of social-and-hygienic monitoring must comprise a potential danger of pesticides.
