- •Smoking and intake of certain foods expose the general population to cadmium (Cd).
- •It is known that Cd accumulates in the human aortic wall.
- •Cadmium decreases proliferation of smooth muscle cells and collagen synthesis.
- •A population-based case-control study with 18-year follow-up was performed.
- •Blood Cd was associated with risk of incident abdominal aortic aneurysm.
