The possibility of more widespread contamination and greater mobility of cadmium in the environment on the one hand and the advent of new data concerning the carcinogenicity of cadmium on the other, make it timely to review the "state-of-the-art" in human risk identification and assessment, and this is essentially the aim of the present volume. Recent studies on human exposure, toxicology, renal dysfunction and related effects, and experimental and epidemiological evidence for carcinogenicity of cadmium provide an update on earlier reviews.
