Humans are exposed to a number of "heavy metals" such as cadmium, mercury and its organic form methylmercury, uranium, lead, and other metals as wel as metalloids, such as arsenic, in the environment, workplace, food, and water supply. Exposure to these metals may result in adverse health effects, and national and international health agencies have methodologies to set health-based guidance values with the aim to protect the human population. This chapter introduces the general principles of… Expand
Risk assessment of heavy metals in drinking water on the human health, Assiut City, and its environs, Egypt
The continuous urbanization and industrialization in many parts of the Assiut City have led to the incidence of elevated concentrations of heavy metal (HM) in soil, surface water, and groundwater.Expand
Health Risk Assessment of Heavy Metals (Pb, Cd, Hg) in Hydroalcoholic Gels of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire
TLDR
The incremental lifetime cancer risk (ILCR) evaluation for lead and cadmium was insignificant, and the cancer risk can be neglected, but in case of their overusing, they can cause long-term health problems for consumers. Expand
Health Risk Assessment and Spatial Distribution Characteristic on Heavy Metals Pollution of Haihe River Basin
The concentrations of carcinogenic risk substances of cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), arsenic (As) as well as noncarcinogenic risk substances of lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), Copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), ammoniaExpand
Assessment of heavy metal pollution in soils and health risk consequences of human exposure within the vicinity of hot mix asphalt plants in Rivers State, Nigeria
TLDR
The dermal route was found to be the least likely model for health risks associated with human exposure to soil heavy metals within the vicinity of hot mix asphalt plants and no significant health risks were observed in the study. Expand
Human and animal health risk assessments of chemicals in the food chain: comparative aspects and future perspectives.
TLDR
This introductory review aims to give a comparative account of the risk assessment steps used in human health and animal health risk assessments for chemicals in the food chain and provides a critical view of the data gaps and future perspectives for this cross-disciplinary field. Expand
Distributions, pollution evaluation and health risk of selected heavy metal in surface water of Taylor creek, Bayelsa State, Nigeria
Objective This study investigated seasonality in the distribution, pollution evaluation and health risk of selected heavy metal in surface water of Taylor creek, Bayelsa State, Nigeria. Materials andExpand
An Inter-disciplinary Approach to Evaluate Human Health Risks Due to Long-Term Exposure to Contaminated Groundwater Near a Chemical Complex
Potentially toxic elements (PTEs) are known to threat human health due to exposure to contaminated groundwater. Some of these PTEs can lead to long-term carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic healthExpand
Toenail as Non-invasive Biomarker in Metal Toxicity Measurement of Welding Fumes Exposure - A Review
TLDR
Toenail is the ideal matrix for most common heavy metals due to its reliability and practicality compared to other biological samples as well as it is a non-invasive matrix and this appears as a huge advantage of toenail as a biomarker. Expand
Chemical Hazards in Foods
This extensive chapter focuses on chemical hazards that have increased dramatically because of the economic development in various sectors including agriculture, food processing, industry andExpand
Heavy metal contamination in processed seafood and the associated health risk for Malaysian women
TLDR
There is a need to refer back to the local permissible level of heavy metals in processed seafood and formulate safe consumption guide, and food types are advised to be consumed with caution especially by the sensitive group. Expand
