DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) "bio-accumulate" , so each level of the food chain consumes the poison DDT "bio-accumulated" by the level below it when the higher organism eats the lower organism. So, a bird of prey at the top of the food chain is consuming all of the DDT accumulated in the food that it eats in the food chain....
