The possibility that liver and kidney function is adversely affected by current levels of environmental exposure to cadmium (Cd) as investigated in adult men and women in the general population in Seoul. From February to August in 2001, blood and morning spot urine samples were collected from 136 not occupationally exposed group (age range 20~75 years) at 4 survey sites throughout seoul. Liver and kidney function parameters in serum and urine were examined by conventional methods. The questionnaire included factors, i.e. sex, age, smuldng, alcohol, diet habit etc. The geometric mean values for Cd in blood (Cd-B) were 1.43μg/l. It seemed prudent to conclude that liver and kidney function as not disturbed by the current environmental exposure to Cd in study.
