The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health.

Cadmium is a toxic heavy metal with a harmful effect on the kidney, bone, and various organ systems. The main sources of cadmium exposure are considered to be the ingestion of contaminated food, active and passive smoking, and inhalation in workers from fields such as in battery manufacturing. Environmental cadmium exposure has been recognized as a worldwide public health issue. This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to environmental exposure to and health problems of cadmium. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
