||Heptachlor is readily absorbed following ingestion and skin contact. There are no reports of cases of poisoning in man. Although no adverse effects have been reported in workers manufacturing or using the compound, epidemiological data are insufficient to judge the carcinogenic hazard of heptachlor to man. Other important aspects covered: identity and analytical methods; uses and sources of exposure; environmental concentrations and exposures; kinetics and metabolism; effects on animals and man; recommendations for further research. French translation available from World Health Organization, Distribution and Sales Service, 1211 Geneva 27, Switzerland.
