A high content of DDT is found in11 croft lands from 25 samples in Ararat region’s Sayat Nova, Armavir region’s Jrarat, Khanjyan, Norapat communities, as well as in Aragatsotn region’s Quchak community. Lilik Simonyan doctor-expert of Armenian Women for Health and Healthy Environment' NGO said about this during “Chemicals damage Hormonal system work” roundtable discussion. “DDT's norm 0.1 mg / kg, but the content of DDT in samples of lands fluctuated between 0.17 to 2.48 mg / kg limit. This reflect the fact that previously used DDT remained in land, or DDT has been used in any ways”, Lilik Simonyan said.
