The samples amounted to 1546 in total, and were analyzed for cadmium (Cd) by electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry. The data show that the highest and the lowest geometric means of Cd contents in rice from Asia was 55.70 and 2.67 ng/g, respectively, and 133.20 and 0.88 ng/g outside of… CONTINUE READING
