 To assess whether regular consumption of seafood, particularly fish and shellfish, by humans may lead to an overexposure to inorganic arsenic, a well-established human carcinogen, the urinary excretion of the relevant As metabolites (Asi, inorganic form; MMA, monomethylarsonic acid; DMA, dimethylarsinic acid) was compared in groups of subjects with different seafood consumption habits and in volunteers after ingestion of a known amount of seafood arsenicals. Studies of Italian cohorts… CONTINUE READING
