High blood cadmium and mercury concentrations in reindeer herders in northern Finland west of Kola Peninsula / P.V. Luoma, S. Näyhä, L. Pyy, H. Korpela, J. Hassi.

Title: High blood cadmium and mercury concentrations in reindeer herders in northern Finland west of Kola Peninsula / P.V. Luoma, S. Näyhä, L. Pyy, H. Korpela, J. Hassi.

Date: 1992.
Publisher: Rovaniemi: Arctic Centre, University of Lapland
In: Symposium on the State of the Environment and Environmental Monitoring in Northern Fennoscandia and the Kola Peninsula, October 6-8, 1992, Rovaniemi, Finland - Extended abstracts. (1992.),
Abstract: 230 male herders were examined in S-W, S-E, N-W and N-E Lapland using atomic absorption spectroscopy. Blood cadmium (Cd) was higher in smokers, increased towards N-E and was higher in those who ate reindeer meat at least twice a week than in those who did so less often. Blood organic mercury (Hg) increased towards N-E and with number of fish meals per week. Low buffer capacity of soil probably promotes toxic compounds in food chain.
