To examine the relations between the burden of blood copper (B-Cu), blood ferrous (B-Fe), and the oxidative stress in people around electronic waste (e-waste) recycling sites, this study measured and analyzed the level of urinary 8-Hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHDG) of these people. Exposed groups, consisted of female groups (directly exposed group n=100, indirectly exposed group n=54) and male groups (directly exposed group n=98, indirectly exposed group n=34), were chosen from e-waste… CONTINUE READING
