My husband is carrying various toxins in his blood seum
(chromatography). Some were said to be within 'acceptable' levels and
others gave some cause for concern. Can anyone tell me where I can
find information about the currently perceived 'acceptable' levels of
the following toxic chemicals. 

Also, could anyone hazard a guess as to whether it would be possible
to pick up toxins at these sort of levels purely from food or vitamin
supplements such as cod liver oil. I have given the levels he is said
to be carrying in micrograms/litre.

Lindane 		7.9
DDT			4.4
HCB			5.7
Mirex			1.2
Toxaphene		3.4
PCBs			0.8
Pentachlorophenol	2.7
Cararyl (Sevin)		1.9
