Human and Ecological Risk Assessment | Year: 2015

In this study, quantification of nitrophenol (NP), chlorophenol (CP), and hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) compounds in agricultural soils in the vicinity of the industrial region in northern Uttar Pradesh, India was carried out for the assessment of human health hazard. The concentration of ∑NP, ∑CP, and ∑HCH compounds ranged 0.33–3.64 mg kg−1, 0.06–3.18 μg kg−1, and 1.23–17.24 mg kg−1, respectively, and were within the soil quality guidelines for the protection of human and environment health. Human health hazard index and cancer risk, on the basis of average daily intake of these compounds through soil for human adults and children, was lower than the acceptable limit. This study suggested low health hazard and risk due to phenolic and HCH compounds to human population. 2015 Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC
