NEED HELP ANSWERING FOLLOWING QUESTION. PLEASE BE DETAILED, PRECISE, AND THOROUGH! THANKS!

Methoxychlor is an insecticide that was intended to take DDT's place because it is not as soluble in fatty tissues and is more readily biodegradable. It, too, can accumulate in the environment, however, so its use was also banned-in 2002 in the European Union and in 2003 in the United States. Why is methoxychlor less soluble in fatty tissues than DDT?
