Environmental effects are being tested


It is an exciting request that we store and accumulate all the chemical waste in our body that we come in contact with every day. The National Environmental Institute is currently researching this.


Humans are characterized by chemical effects in the environment, which can be characterized by the bioavailability of the substances that are absorbed in the body by different names (eg, inhalation, nutrition, water, etc.).
The European Union also intends to launch a European Health Examination in a few countries, including the examination of biological samples from humans. However, this requires the EU to use similar, harmonized methods in all Member States for the selection, information, examination, sampling, sampling, sampling, information.
Its detailed elaboration has been under way for two years in the framework of an EU grant project, which is now joined by a practical validation test project. (The acronym for the DEMOCOPHES project, a project supported by the EU Life + Program: DEMOnstration of a Study to Coordinate and Perform Human Biomonitoring on the European Scale), demonstrates some significant environmental exposure to a metal or compound.
In a study in 17 European countries, school children and their mothers are exposed to a variety of pollutants. In each state, we select the 120 children and mothers who are randomly selected to provide hair and urine samples, respond to questions about their environment, and their lifestyle. In Hungary, too, people who live in big cities or small villages live in close proximity to nature. Mercury is detected in hair samples such as cadmium, cotinine and phthalates in urine.
Mercury and cadmium are toxic toxicants present in our environment. Cotinine is produced from inhaled tobacco smoke, a good degree of passive smoking. Phthalates are used in large quantities for plastics plastics, so they can be found, for example, in packaging materials, (plastic) casings. In Europe, we collect information from over 4,000 people, as well as hair and urine samples. Based on the information obtained, we can get an idea of ​​the concentration of these pollutants in the European average and the health risks they pose.
