Malaysians come into direct contact with POPs when they consume food. Excessive use of pesticides, weed killers and other forms of chemicals in Malaysian farms means that each Malaysian gets a share of these dangerous pollutants through the food they consume and the air they breathe. The increase in chronic diseases among Malaysians is ample evidence of this. Minimising Exposure to Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs): Successful Initiatives in Malaysia contains case studies and activities related to the Consumers Association of Penang’s efforts to create awareness about the dangers of POPs. It is our earnest hope that these activities will motivate others to move in the same direction in order to leave behind a toxic-free world for future generations.
