The relationship between cadmium exposure and tubular and glomerular function was investigated in Sweden in 820 women aged 53–64 years. 67 μg/g creatinine), respectively, were associated with effects on renal tubules, as indicated by increased levels of human complex-forming protein and N-acetyl-β-d-glucosaminidase in urine. The associations remained significant even at the low levels of exposure in women who had never smoked. 8 μg/g creatinine). According to Järup et al. (1998), adverse health effects (in the form of tubular damage) from environmental cadmium exposure – indicated by the increased excretion of β2-M – may develop in 1% of the adult general population at daily cadmium intake levels of 30 μg/day over the lifespan.

Accumulation of cadmium in the soil depends on the soil properties, with clay soils in general retaining more cadmium than sandy soils. The most difficult flux to estimate in the balances is loss through leaching. 2). Data on cadmium concentrations in suction lysimeters and saturation extracts from soils in southern Sweden, recalculated as amounts (assuming a precipitation excess of 200 mm/a), indicate a leaching value of 40 g/km2. Saturation extracts from two clay-rich neutral soils from central Sweden had concentrations corresponding to 12–28 g/km2/a.
