Abstract:A team led by Wei Zheng, senior research scientist at ISTC, investigated whether our food is at risk of accumulating PPCPs when irrigated with wastewater from concentrated animal feedlot operations (CAFOs) and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). The results appeared in Zheng, Wei et al (2014). "Uptake, Translocation, and Accumulation of Pharmaceutical and Hormone Contaminants in Vegetables." in Kyung Myung, Norbert M. Satchivi, and Colleen K. Kingston, eds. Retention, Uptake, and Translocation of Agrochemicals in Plants. Washington, DC : American Chemical Society, 167-181. DOI: 10.1021/bk-2014-1171.ch009.
