Mammals metabolize some pesticides to limit their biomagnification
from Science Codex
The concentrations of many historically used, and now widely banned, pesticides and other toxic chemicals — called legacy contaminants — can become magnified in an animal that eats contaminated food; however, a new Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry study has found that Arctic mammals metabolize some currently used pesticides, preventing such "biomagnification."
