In the effective range of a lead smelting plant, the repercussions of cadmium emissions (mainly past) on vegetables, fruit, soil and drinking water as well as of immissions were investigated by means of atomic absorption spectrometry. As compared to the "normal" cadmium level, the cadmium contents in vegetables and fruit were some 2- to 85-fold higher; and(More)
To assess the contamination of fruit and vegetables by lead-containing road dust, products displayed in the open air and in retail shops, respectively, were analysed for lead content.
