The major cause of cadmium toxicity is smoke inhalation. According to a recent study, up to 60% of the cadmium found in cigarettes are absorbed by our lungs. When accumulated and stored in the body tissues over a long period of time, cadmium buildup can lead to potentially life threatening diseases in the respiratory system.
While exposure to cadmium is almost impossible to avoid, practicing simple preventive measures can go a long way. Here’s some tips to get you started:
- Store cadmium-filled batteries in areas that your children cannot reach.
- Avoid smoking areas or places where you can get exposed to second-hand smoke.
- Revamp your diet and increase your protein, calcium, and iron intake.
