Relatively little is known of the chronic effects attributable to the ingestion of inorganic components such as uranium and silicon. Although ingestion of large amounts of U can cause acute renal damage through a chemical effect, studies on humans have typically considered inhalation the route of exposure. We investigated the association between drinking water concentration levels of U and Si, and microalbuminuria, a sensitive biological indicator of renal dysfunction. Linear regression… CONTINUE READING
