||Effect of the consumption of humic acid with bound complex microelements in cases of occupational cadmium exposure
||1997, Vol.3, No.3, p.175-186. Illus. 38 ref.
||Blood and urine cadmium concentrations were measured in nine workers in an alkaline battery production plant and in 22 workers in a metal plating workshop. Measurements were carried out before and after a six-week treatment involving daily consumption of humic acid with bound complex microelements (HME). Following the treatment, blood cadmium levels were lower in both groups; urine cadmium levels were increased in the battery workers only. In most cases, the initially abnormal serum iron levels and markers of liver and kidney function improved. Regular consumption of HME may contribute to the prevention of adverse health effects in cadmium-exposed workers.
