Correlation of Lead and Cadmium in Human Urine
Beginning in May 1973 the analysis of urine for the presence of cadmium has been performed in this laboratory on a routine basis. During the following months, the subjective impression emerged that when elevated urinary concentrations of lead were found, urinary cadmium concentrations were often elevated also. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the possible statistical relationship between the elevated concentrations of these two elements.
