Levels of heavy metal cadmium in rice (Oryza sativa L.) produced in Taiwan and probabilistic risk assessment for the Taiwanese population
TLDR
According to the HI heat map for the exposure of the general population to Cd from rice in Taiwan, the highest exposure was noted in the Yilan area (HI 0.64), and rice production in theYilan area should be further monitored to evaluate the levels of Cd contamination. Expand
Evaluating the trace metal pollution of an urban paddy soil and bioaccumulation in rice (Oryza sativa L.) with the associated dietary risks to local population: a case study of Ilorin, north-central Nigeria
Abstract Trace metal contamination of paddy soil can be of major health concern due to the potential risk involved in metal transfer along the food chain. This study investigates the level of someExpand
Cadmium and lead content in several brands of rice grains (Oryza sativa) in central Iran
TLDR
Investigation of the cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) content of several commercially available brands of rice grains in central Iran indicated that weekly intake of Cd and Pb from rice grains was below the provisional tolerable weekly intakes recommended by WHO/FAO. Expand
Arsenic Contamination of Polished Rice Produced in Abandoned Mine Areas and Its Potential Human Risk Assessment using Probabilistic Techniques
BACKGROUND: This study was conducted to investi- gate the arsenic (As) contaminations in polished rice culti- vated nearby abandoned mine areas, and to estimate the potential health risk throughExpand
Elements in rice from the Swedish market: 1. Cadmium, lead and arsenic (total and inorganic)
  • L. Jorhem, C. Åstrand, +4 authors K. Grawé
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Food additives & contaminants. Part A, Chemistry, analysis, control, exposure & risk assessment
  • 2008
TLDR
In countries where rice is a staple food, it may represent a significant contribution in relation to the provisional tolerable weekly intake for Cd and inorganic As. Expand
Elements in rice on the Swedish market: Part 2. Chromium, copper, iron, manganese, platinum, rubidium, selenium and zinc
  • L. Jorhem, C. Åstrand, +4 authors K. Grawé
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Food additives & contaminants. Part A, Chemistry, analysis, control, exposure & risk assessment
  • 2008
TLDR
It was concluded that rice may contribute considerably to the daily requirements of the essential elements Cu, Fe, Mn, Se, and Zn if rice consumption is high. Expand
In Vivo Assessment of Arsenic Bioavailability in Rice and Its Significance for Human Health Risk Assessment
TLDR
The results indicate that arsenic bioavailability in rice is highly dependent on arsenic speciation, which in turn can vary depending on rice cultivar, arsenic in irrigation water, and the presence and nature of arsenic speciating in cooking water. Expand
Lead in Rice Grain
Lead (Pb) is a pollutant of a significant public health concern due to its occurrence, persistence and toxicity. Children exposed to high levels of Pb may present serious health problems, such asExpand
A preliminary health risk assessment of heavy metals in local and imported rice grains marketed in Trinidad and Tobago, W.I.
TLDR
The target hazard quotient (THQ) and hazard index (HI) values for all samples were less than one, indicating no risk of non-carcinogenic effects to consumers. Expand
Assessment of arsenic and associated metals in the soil-plant-water system in Neogene basins of Attica, Greece
Abstract This paper presents a study on the soil-plant-water system in the Neogene basins of Attica (Greece), where an uppermost yellow-brown travertine limestone has been deposited. The principalExpand
