Assessment of Human Exposures to Atmospheric Cadmium
The report identifies the population exposed to specified cadmium levels from selected point sources. The sources considered are from and steel mills, municipal incinerators, primary smelters (zinc, copper, lead, and cadmium), and secondary smelters (copper and zinc). Municipal incinerators are the chief contributors to the total population exposed. Primary zinc and primary copper smelters are estimated to cause the highest concentrations.
