(Bio)monitoring data
High concentrations of ziram were found in air borne particles in New Orleans right after the hurricane Katrina in 2005. It was also detected in air samples from California during a time of the year when pesticide consumption was high.  Ziram was detected in fresh and dry apricots from Italy. (Baker et al., 1996; Cabras et al., 1997; Ravikrishna et al., 2010)
Possible uses
Source: 
This substance has endocrine disrupting properties.In vivo exposure to the substance has resulted in decreased fertility, sperm abnormalities and skeletal, muscular and nervous abnormalities in rodent offspring. In vivo and in vitro studies show negative thyroid effects. In addition a number of in vitro studies show negative effects on immune cells.
