Cadmium is one of the metals which is not normally found in the pure form in nature. It is also widely used in various fields of industry. The most important toxicological feature of cadmium, on human body, is known to be its very long half-life (Fleisher 1974; Yost 1974; Bernard 1986; Page 1973). Cadmium originates from various sources, and reaches human body by food, beverages, drinks, air, and tobacco (Sherlock 1984).
