Chicken Eggs as an Indicator of POPs Pollution in Thailand

September 8, 2017

This study demonstrates some emerging problems of pollution by persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in relation to the   growing industry in Thailand. Some sites with a large concentration of industrial facilities, although there were many limitations, create a broad and exhaustive picture of POPs in free- range chicken eggs in such a large country.

Chicken eggs are an important part of the human diet. The eggs from localities polluted by POPs can significantly burden the body, as demonstrated in this report, although eggs are a less common in food for the Thai population, in comparison with some other countries. The solution is not to discourage the public from eating chicken eggs or punishing the chicken farmers, but to prevent further contamination of the food chain at certain hotspots by addressing the issues of POPs being released into the environment.
