An assessment of health risks associated with arsenic exposure via consumption of homegrown vegetables near contaminated glassworks sites.

Abstract

The health risk posed by arsenic in vegetables grown in private gardens near 22 contaminated glassworks sites was investigated in this study. Firstly, vegetable (lettuce and potato) and soil samples were collected and arsenic concentrations measured to characterize the arsenic uptake in the selected crops. Secondly, a probabilistic exposure assessment was… (More)
