Environmental Toxins

Through testing blood or urine, the individual systemic toxic exposure can be monitored quantitatively. Human Biomonitoring of organic toxic substances and their metabolites is used to determine the degree of acute and past exposures.

To assess past exposures, we take into account the half-life of toxic substances. Those with a long half-life such as certain pesticides or the polychlorinated biphenoles can be detected years after exposure.

We test insecticides, bactericides, wood preservatives and chemical solvents.

Mercury in air near coal-fired power stations

The emission of mercury fumes near coal-fired power stations has been measured in Germany as shown in this documentary. It may be one reason why we are still seeing high levels of mercury in blood samples.
