COMBINED METHODS FOR EVALUTION OF THE HEAVY METALS CONTAMINATION OF HUMAN BEINGS CORELATED WITH HUMAN HARD TISSUES METABOLISM
Our main aim is to find an assessment methodology for heavy metals stored in heavy human tissues correlated with their metabolism for the assessment of human health state and also for an objective valuation for contamination sources. We estimate a sinergistic link between elemental analyses method at bulk level with local ones, at microscopical level (localized and mapped). The research group, based on the whole adequate experience, has established that edpxrf (energy dispersive polarized x-ray fluorescence spectrometry) and esem-eds(environmental scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive spectrometry) can be used together for Pb, Hg, Cd, Sr, etc. contents, but also for constitutive elements, too.
