  1. 1. Heavy Metal Exposure in Early Life - Health and Labour Market Perspectives

    University dissertation from Printed in Sweden by Media-Tryck, Lund University

    Author : Yana Pryymachenko; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-04-05]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Metal pollution; accumulated exposure; lead pollution; GPA; education; earnings; infant mortality; cognitive skills;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of three empirical studies on the effects of exposure to heavy metal pollution in early childhood on a broad set of individual outcomes. The first study analyses how accumulated exposure to metal pollution during childhood affects long-run outcomes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of cadmium, mercury and lead in man. The value of X-ray fluorescence measurements in vivo

    University dissertation from Medical Radiation Physics, Lund University

    Author : Jimmy Börjesson; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physics; exposure assessment; smelter; half-time; fingerbone; occupational exposure; bone; thyroid; liver; kidney cortex; lead; mercury; cadmium; XRF; in vivo; Fysik; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : Two XRF methods have been used for in vivo studies of mercury, cadmium and lead. Persons with a history of long-term occupational mercury exposure had elevated mercury concentrations in their kidneys (up to 65 µg/g). The minimum detectable concentration varied between 12 and 45 µg/g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lead exposure in indigenous children of the Peruvian Amazon seeking the hidden source,venturing into participatory research

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Cynthia Anticona Huaynate; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lead exposure; children; indigenous; Corrientes river; participatory research; Peruvian Amazon; folkhälsa; Public health;

    Abstract : Introduction. In 2006, a Peruvian environmental agency reported the presence of elevated blood lead levels (BLLs) in indigenous communities of the Corrientes river basin. This is a territory in the Peruvian Amazon where oil activity has been associated with serious environmental effects, with impact on an ongoing social conflict. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prospective and longitudinal human studies of lead and cadmium exposure and the kidney

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Johan Nilsson Sommar; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cadmium; end-stage renal disease; kidney; lead; longitudinal; matched case-control; mixed effects; prospective; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Abstract : Cadmium and lead accumulate in humans and can have toxic effects. Exposure to cadmium is well known to cause kidney damage. Cadmium binds to metallothioneins, proteins that play a role in cadmium transport. READ MORE
