Abstract

ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH HAZARDS OF CHROMIUM AND IMPACT OF HUMAN HEALTH.

G.Tulasi* and K. Jayantha Rao

ABSTRACT

Chromium is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, soil, plants and animals in volcanic dust and gases. Chromium is a carcinogen poses very serious health hazard to making. Reports of “Adeno carcinoma” in a worker who had been involved in chromium pigment production for 20 years are also evidenced. American studies indicate an increased incidence of highly exclusive lung cancer rates among chromate producers and chrome pigment makers. Chromium possesses toxicological, carcinogenic and mutagenic properties and is extremely hazardous to aquatic biota. An industrial effluent is very essential before it is released in any form into the aquatic environment. The chemical hazards are local action, inhalation and ingestion. Some chemicals cause dermatitis, eczema, ulcers and even cancer by primary irritant action (Park and Park, 1977). Occupational dermatitis is a big problem in industry. Inhalation includes dusts, gases, metals and their compounds.

Keywords: Chromium is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, soil, plants and animals in volcanic dust and gases. Chromium is a carcinogen poses very serious health hazard to making. Reports of “Adeno carcinoma” in a worker who had been involved in chromium
