Cancer and Non-Cancer Risk of Santiago Island ( Cape Verde ) Population due to Potential Toxic Elements Exposure from Soils

  title={Cancer and Non-Cancer Risk of Santiago Island ( Cape Verde ) Population due to Potential Toxic Elements Exposure from Soils},
  author={Manuela Pinto and Maria M. V. G. Silva and Eduardo. A. Ferreira da Silva and A. Paula. Reis},
The hazard and the carcinogenic risks due to the exposure to some potentially toxic elements by the Santiago Island (Cape Verde) population where calculated, considering soil ingestion, inhalation and dermal contact as exposure pathways. The topsoil of Santiago Island is enriched in Co, Cr, Cu, Ni, V, Zn, Mn and Cd to upper crust values. Hazard indices (HI) were calculated for these metals and As exposures, of Santiago Island population and the calculations were performed for children and… CONTINUE READING
