The incorporation into the body of metals from the River Deba sediments is simulated

Researchers in the UPV/EHU’s Department of Chemical Engineering and the Environment have shown that not all the metal contained in the river’s sediments directly affects human health but that only a fraction of these metals can be incorporated into the human body. In the study they estimated the bioaccessibility of metals contained in sediments in the River Deba by means of the in vitro simulation of the conditions that the sediment would undergo in the human gastrointestinal tract. …read more
