Formatted Abstract/Summary
Waste materials from mining activities can result in environmental contamination. Excessive and prolonged exposure to mixed metals and metalloids can lead to adverse health effects in humans and animals. Lead (Pb) and arsenic (As) are common contaminants found in mine waste materials. In the absence of specific bioavailability data, it is assumed that ingested metals and metalloids are 100% bioavailable for absorption. However, studies have shown that this is seldom the case. In this project, an evidence-based risk assessment approach was developed by studying the interaction effects of As on Pb with regard to its bioavailability and pharmacokinetics in an in-vivo animal model (rodent), with particular reference to mine wastes...
