What are Persistent Organic Pollutants?

POPs are a group of chemicals that are resistant to degradation and can persist in the environment for long periods of time. These chemicals can bioaccumulate in living organisms, meaning that they can build up in the food chain and reach high levels in top predators, such as fish and birds. POPs can also travel long distances through air and water currents, making them a global problem.

POPs can have harmful effects on human health and the environment. Exposure to POPs has been linked to a range of health problems, including cancer, reproductive and developmental disorders, and immune system damage. POPs can also have harmful effects on wildlife, including reduced fertility, developmental abnormalities, and behavioural changes.

Why are POPs a Problem?

POPs are a problem for several reasons. Firstly, they can persist in the environment for decades, meaning that they can continue to have harmful effects long after they have been released. Secondly, POPs can travel long distances through air and water currents, making them a global problem. This means that even countries that have banned the use of POPs can still be affected by them.

Thirdly, POPs can have harmful effects on human health and the environment. Exposure to POPs has been linked to a range of health problems, including cancer, reproductive and developmental disorders, and immune system damage. POPs can also have harmful effects on wildlife, including reduced fertility, developmental abnormalities, and behavioural changes.
