Abstract

The agricultural sector is a very dominant sector in District of Cikajang, Regency of Garut, Province of West Java. The main commodities are chili, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes and potatoes. Agricultural activities cannot be separated from the use of pesticides. Ordinary farmers consume vegetables from agricultural produce so as to pose a risk of health problems. This study aims to determine the health risks due to consumption of vegetables containing with pesticide residues in the District of Cikajang, Regency of Garut. The research method is an observational study with the design of Environmental Health Risk Analysis. Social-demographic and dietary surveys with interviews of 99 farmers were conducted from March to May 2017. Chili samples were extracted using the QuEChERS technique and calculated by gas chromatography equipped with a flame photometric detector (FPD). The results showed that vegetables containing with pesticide residues were chili with the highest Profenofos concentration i.e. sample number III, that is 11.193 mg/kg, and the mean concentration of 5.235 mg/kg, while the pesticide residues are not found in cabbage and carrots. Intake of Profenofos through chili at farmers in the District of Cikajang is 0.05867 mg/kg/day, with duration of exposure of 33.4 years, weight of 57.37 kg. Intake rate of 0.3571 gr/day and exposure frequency of 52 days/year. The profenofos concentration in chili has exceeded the normal limit according to EPA (2006) that is 0.00005 mg/kg/h. The results show that non carcinogenic RQ have a risk for exposure to the disease. Therefore the health risk reduction management needs to be done.
