Reference: Investigation of potential health risks in terms of arsenic in grapevine exposed to gallery waters of an abandoned mining area in Turkey
Key Statements


In this study, potential health risks in terms of arsenic in grapevine exposed to gallery waters of an abandoned mining area in Turkey were investigated. The concentrations of arsenic were determined in roots, stems, and leaves. The translocation factors and bioconcentration factors were calculated. The highest arsenic concentration in the grapevine was determined as 539.427 mg/kg, for root. The arsenic concentrations in grapevine as follows: RootLeafStem. The estimated daily exposure followed an order for the male, female, and children: dermalinhalationingestiondietary. The non-carcinogenic and total hazard index values calculated for As were higher than 1. The risk of arsenic to be carcinogenic has been determined. The highest carcinogenic risk can be listed as dietary  ingestion  inhalation  dermal. In our study, calculated carcinogenic risk values in terms of dietary, inhalation, and ingestion are higher than 10−4-10−6. As a result, the highest cancer risk on human health was determined as a dietary intake of grapevine leaves according to the calculated carcinogenic risk values.
