The purpose of the study was to investigate analytical and sampling methodology for measuring amount of exposure and health effects of fuel additives to urban and rural populations. Both human exposure to normal levels of fuel additives present in urban traffic and to the high concentration under occupational conditions such as attendants in garages and parking lots and to policemen working in heavily trafficked areas. Fuel additives studied included the heavy metals, lead, manganese, copper, and zinc. Also measured in human tissue samples was the fuel impurity, cadmium. Trace metals in hair were determined to reflect long-term exposure. Blood and urine samples reflected short-term exposure. Feces measurement for lead and cadmium provided an estimation of dietary contributions.
