||Cadmium levels in the urine of male sewage sludge farmers of Hyderabad, India
||Sep. 1994, Vol.43, No.1, p.1-6. 18 ref.
||Urinary cadmium levels of 45 non-smoking sewage sludge farmers of different age groups and exposure were found to be significantly higher than those of the non-smoking general population of similar age group with no occupational exposure. Mean concentrations of urinary cadmium among the farmers varied from 2.92µg/L for those with 10 years exposure to 7.07µg/L for those with 25 years exposure. Further studies are required to determine any long-term effects of exposure to cadmium-containing sludge.
