The aim of the present study was to examine the body burden of lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), and cadmium (Cd) in blood among Swedish adults and the association between blood levels, diet and other lifestyle factors. The study was based on a subgroup (n=273) of the national survey Riksmaten 2010-2011 (4-day food records and questionnaire). Lead, Hg, and Cd were measured in whole blood, and Cd additionally in urine, by mass or fluorescence spectrometry methods. The median values (5-95th percentiles… Expand
Arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury levels in blood of Finnish adults and their relation to diet, lifestyle habits and sociodemographic variables
TLDR
The Northern Finland Birth Cohort program (NFBC) is the epidemiological and longitudinal prospective general population research program, which was established to promote health and wellbeing of the population in northern Finland to compareThese levels with threshold limits; to study sociodemographic factors; and to correlate these levels with calcium and haemoglobin.

Blood levels of lead, cadmium, and mercury in the elderly living in institutionalized care in the Czech Republic
TLDR
The body burden of lead, cadmium and mercury in association with age, gender, locality, lifestyle factors and potential health impacts among this population and to compare the values with blood values from the general Czech population aged 18-64 years is determined. Expand
Cadmium, total mercury, and lead in blood and associations with diet, sociodemographic factors, and smoking in Swedish adolescents.
TLDR
It was found that fish was a potentially important source of exposure to total Hg in Swedish adolescents and no other food group was identified to have a strong impact on the blood levels of Cd,total Hg and Pb. Expand
Baseline blood levels of manganese, lead, cadmium, copper, and zinc in residents of Beijing suburb.
TLDR
There were significant age-related differences in blood levels of all metals studied; subjects in the 17-30 age group had higherBlood levels of Mn, Pb, Cu, and Zn, while those in the 46-60 age grouphad higher Cd than the other age groups. Expand

TLDR
The findings revealed the potential importance of processed meat products as a dietary source of cadmium and the association of consumption of processed meats and other dietary products with urinary Cd concentrations in the SHFS, a family-based study conducted in American Indian communities. Expand
BIOMONITORING OF TOXIC COMPOUNDS AND ASSOCIATIONS WITH DIETARTY AND LIFE-STYLE FACTORS IN A SWEDISH POPULATION-BASED STUDY IN ADULTS
Riksmaten 2010-11 is a Swedish national survey investigating dietary habits among adults (18-80 years), conducted between May 2010 and July 2011. In this survey, 1797 women and men reported what theyExpand
Low-level maternal exposure to cadmium, lead, and mercury and birth outcomes in a Swedish prospective birth-cohort.
TLDR
Low-level maternal Cd and Hg exposure were associated with poorer birth anthropometry and the main dietary sources were identified through a semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire administered in mid-third trimester. Expand
Reference values of cadmium, arsenic and manganese in blood and factors associated with exposure levels among adult population of Rio Branco, Acre, Brazil.
TLDR
Factors contributing to increase Cd levels were smoking, ethnicity (non-white), and lower education, whereas drinking tea and non-bottled water were associated with lower Cd, and levels of As and Mn were higher than in other non-occupationally exposed populations elsewhere. Expand
Blood cadmium levels and sources of exposure in an adult urban population in southern Brazil.
TLDR
The results shed novel information on variables associated with blood Cd levels in an urban Brazilian population, and should encourage additional research to prevent environmental Cd exposure, both in Brazil and globally. Expand
Predictors of cadmium and lead concentrations in the blood of residents from the metropolitan area of Athens (Greece).
TLDR
Evaluated the predictors and proposed reference values of the Cd (CdB) and Pb (PbB) blood concentrations in residents of the metropolitan area of Athens (Greece) and demonstrated that the predictor variables for the CdB levels were the standardized beta weight, smoking, age, alcohol consumption, and intake of leafy vegetables, whereas for the PbB levels they were sex and age.

Thyroid Hormones in Relation to Lead, Mercury, and Cadmium Exposure in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2007–2008
TLDR
The analysis suggests an inverse association between Hg exposure and thyroid hormones, and a positive association between Cd exposure and iodine-stimulating hormone in adults. Expand
Human Exposure to Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury, and Lead from Foods in Catalonia, Spain: Temporal Trend
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that, currently, the dietary intakes of As, Cd, Hg, and Pb should not mean additional health risks for the consumers. Expand
Metal concentrations in blood and hair in pregnant females in southern Sweden.
TLDR
The levels of mercury, cadmium, and lead in whole blood were lower than suggested biological reference intervals, and did not indicate risks for adverse health effects. Expand
Mercury, lead and cadmium in human milk in relation to diet, lifestyle habits and sociodemographic variables in Madrid (Spain).
TLDR
Decreases in Hg levels in older women and in those with a previous history of pregnancies and lactations suggested clearance of this metal over lifetime, though differences were not statistically significant, probably due to limited sample size. Expand
Time trends in burdens of cadmium, lead, and mercury in the population of northern Sweden.
TLDR
The actions against pollution during recent decades have caused a rapid decrease of exposure for Pb and maybe also Hg, and for Hg the decreased use of dental amalgam may also have had an influence. Expand
Associations between proteins and heavy metals in urine at low environmental exposures: evidence of reverse causality.
TLDR
Assessment of associations between the concentrations of cadmium and lead in blood and urine and the urinary concentrations of albumin and of low-molecular-weight (LMW) proteins, retinol-binding protein (RBP) and β(2)-microglobulin revealed significant associations in urine between RBP and Cadmium as well as between β( 2)-microGLobulin and lead whereas no associations were seen with metals in blood.

Cadmium in blood and urine--impact of sex, age, dietary intake, iron status, and former smoking--association of renal effects.
TLDR
Cd levels in kidneys from pigs, fed locally produced cereals, did not predict BCd or UCd in humans at the same farms, and the kidney function parameter ss2-microglobulin-creatinine clearance was related to UCd, whereas urinary protein-HC, N-acetyl-ss-glucoseaminidase or albumin-Creatinine cleared was not when age was accounted for.

Cadmium, mercury, and lead in kidney cortex of living kidney donors: Impact of different exposure sources.
TLDR
In Sweden, kidney Cd levels have decreased due to less smoking, while the impact of diet seems unchanged, and Kidney Pb levels are very low due to decreased exposure. Expand
Tubular and Glomerular Kidney Effects in Swedish Women with Low Environmental Cadmium Exposure
TLDR
In conclusion, tubular renal effects occurred at lower cadmium levels than previously demonstrated, and more important, glomerular effects were also observed, which may represent early signs of adverse effects, affecting large segments of the population. Expand
