OBJECTIVE To investigate fetal exposure to toxic metals [lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd)] and fetal levels of trace elements [zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), and iron (Fe)] in newborns from an industrial city. Relationships between meconium mineral contents and parental occupation and location of residence were also tested. METHOD The meconium mineral contents of 117 healthy newborn infants were measured by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometer. RESULTS The median concentrations (interquartile range… CONTINUE READING
