The purpose of this research was to compare the effects of mineral oil, vegetable oil, and sodium sulfate on the intestinal absorption of a highly lipid soluble toxicant, DDT. Intestinal absorption was evaluated in rats by measuring DDT and metabolites recovery in feces, by measuring the concentration of DDT in adipose tissue, and by measuring the concentration of DDT in thoracic lymph following oral administration of DDT and each agent. Vegetable oil was shown to significantly increase absorption of DDT when compared to all other treatments. Author
