Abstract: 

Qat (also known as Khat, Kat), is a green-leaved plant (Catha edulis) that is chewed for its stimulant effect in Yemen and some other countries in the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa.1 There is concern that people who consume Qat are at high risk of pesticide exposure. It has been estimated that 70% of pesticides that are imported or smuggled to Yemen are used on Qat.2 Studies conducted in Yemen indicated that some globally and nationally banned pesticides such as DDT, lindane, parathion, and dimethoate were still used on Qat as late as 2007.
