Investigadoras do DBIO/CESAM estudam níveis de mercúrio em parturientes

6/06/2017

A study from University of Aveiro found high levels of mercury in women who have just given birth or in the placental tissues themselves. This unprecedented research, which focused for the first time in the country on the analysis of that toxic metal in the hair and blood of the parturients and in the respective placentas and umbilical cords, guarantees that there are women who present levels of mercury above the value recommended by the World Health Organization.

Published online in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, the study carried out under the master's program of Ana Catarina Alves, coordinated by Susana Loureiro and Marta Monteiro, both from DBIO/CESAM, focused on half a hundred parturients, from nine municipalities of the district of Aveiro, from which samples of hair, placenta and umbilical cord were collected.
