Traduction en anglais : Comparison of the burden of the population in the region of Leipzig (former GDR) and Munich (FRG) with the heavy metals cadmium, lead and mercury: an investigation on human tissues.
In the former GDR it was almost impossible to perform studies on environmental pollution.
Therefore, a short time after the opening of the German interior border the authors started an investigation on the heavy metal burden of humans in the former District of Leipzig (Saxonia).
In 1990/91 tissues from 57 deceased were collected from this region.
The concentrations of cadmium were determined in specimens from the liver and renal cortex, of mercury in liver, renal cortex and grey matter of the cerebrum and of lead in samples of the pelvic bone and the cortical part of the femur.
After sample pretreatment, the heavy metal concentrations were determined by GF-AAS or CV-AAS.
