Abstract The study investigates the relationship between cadmium, lead, zinc and mercury burdens and age in five different autopsy tissues. Approximately 30 autopsy cases in each of five age groups were studied. Autopsy cases were from sudden or accidental death victims living in the same metropolitan area (Dallas, Texas). Histories were collected on all cases to scertain that a non-exposed population - with regards to cadmium - was sampled. Information on cigarette smoking, diseases, etc. was also collected. A concurrent epidemiological study was conducted in the Dallas metropolitan area to investigate the cadmium concentrations in urine and feces of persons (six age groups) not exposed to cadmium. Statistical evaluation of the data was performed. Interrelationships between all autopsy tissues for each metal were examined. Total body burdens of cadmium were calculated for standard man.
