    Blood and urine cadmium concentrations have been determined in a group of 85 Inuit residents of Kuujjuaq, Quebec, Canada, drawn from actively hunting households.

    Mean blood cadmium values are high at 39.4 nmol/l, varying between 6.6 in non-smokers and 60.3 in smokers.

    No association of blood cadmium with self-reported offal consumption could be found.

    Median urine cadmium concentrations are elevated at 2.3 mumol/mol creatinine and rise substantially with age:

    • 0.9 in the 30-39 age group;

    • 3.2 among the 40-59 age group;

    • and 4.1 in the 60 and over.
