Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic heavy metal that can contribute to numerous diseases as well as increased mortality. Diet is the primary source of Cd exposure for most individuals, yet little is known about the foods and food groups that contribute most substantially to dietary Cd intake in the US. Therefore, the objective of this study was to estimate dietary Cd intake and identify major food sources Cited by:   CADMIUM EXPOSURE PATHWAYS. Cd enters the environments through natural and various anthropogenic sources. However, the accumulation of Cd in the soil–plant environment mainly through anthropogenic activities such as application of phosphate fertilizers, waste water, sewage sludge and Cited by:   Food & Nutrition. Healthy Eating A new study in the American Journal of Epidemiology finds that exposure to the metal cadmium via food and the Author: Stephanie Eckelkamp. “This is a fascinating book that provides an up-to-date review of the very relevant and timely problem of cadmium contamination and toxicity in the environment. it will be greatly beneficial for graduate students working on cadmium ecotoxicology. it will doubtlessly complement well the knowledge of many researchers and professors.” (Michel Lavoie, The Quarterly Review of Biology.

M. Nordberg, in Encyclopedia of Food Sciences and Nutrition (Second Edition), Toxicokinetics. Cadmium accumulates in the body with age and has an extremely long biological half-life. Because of its long biological half-life of around 20 years, long-term toxicity is of particular interest. G.L. Klein, W.R. Snodgrass, in Encyclopedia of Food Sciences and Nutrition (Second Edition), Place in the Food Chain. Cadmium is found primarily as cadmium sulfide in ores containing zinc, lead, and copper. Cadmium volatilizes more rapidly than other metals when the ore is being smelted, and it condenses to form fine airborne particles that react immediately with oxygen to form cadmium.

However, for most others, food and tobacco smoke are the main sources of cadmium exposure. Cadmium is more readily absorbed by inhalation (%) than ingestion (%). Health Hazards of Cadmium. Regardless of the type of cadmium compound or the route of absorption, cadmium is highly toxic and carcinogenic for humans.   Cadmium in food - Scientific opinion of the Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain cadmium, food, occurrence, exposure, consumption, biomarkers, betamicroglobulin, tolerable weekly intake, risk assessment. Cadmium cyanide and cadmium fluoride are also poisonous. Long-term exposure to lower levels of cadmium can lead to a buildup of cadmium in the kidneys and possible kidney disease. Other long-term health effects include lung damage, emphysema, bronchitis, fragile bones, pulmonary edema, difficult breathing, anemia, rhinitis, and discoloration. After posting the article Cadmium Levels in Vegans, Zinc Supplements and Alzheimer’s Disease, Ginny Messina let me know that there is a concern about cadmium contamination of zinc supplements.. I researched the issue and added the following section to ’s article Cadmium. In , Krone et al tested six zinc supplements from Seattle area health food stores to see if they.
