The Chronic Toxicity of Cadmium: Influence of Environmental and Other Variables

Chapter
Part of the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology book series (HEP, volume 80)

Abstract

As referred to elsewhere in this volume (see especially Chaps. 5 and 6), a series of episodes of chronic human exposure to apparently toxic levels of cadmium have been reported. These will be reviewed in some detail here, followed by the specific health effects seen. The major emphasis in this chapter is placed on the variability of the response to cadmium, and on the factors determining this response.
