Synthetic pesticides-pyrethroids have been widely used in agriculture and in households. Most of them are the environmental hormone substances. Pyrethroids have toxic effects on animals and humans,inducing teratogenicity,carcinogenicity and mutagenicity. In the present paper,the typical animals-fish,mice and rats were choosen for the health risk assessment,and the research progresses on adverse effects of pyrethroids in nervous toxicology,physiological and biochemical toxicology,reproductive toxicology were summerized,as well as the effects of the animal enzymes and immune system.
