Modern industrial development has brought about a worldwide spread of toxic metals in the environment, and hitherto unknown symptoms of intoxication have been recognized, whereas certain other types, quite common about 100 years ago (such as intoxication caused by the use of lead and mercury in certain crafts) have virtually disappeared. In general, the problem of pollution by metals has shifted from a local to a worldwide scale as an ever increasing amount of metals is released in the environment, and attention has focused more and more on insidious long-term effects on man and his environment (Table I).
