Abstract

Aims of the study is to explain and research the effects of the heavy metals (lead, zinc and cadmium) on erythrocytes and leukocytes in miners with different work experience or exposure. The results and conclusions are made based on a three-year period of continuous testing on 120 miners, as professionally exposed workers. We confirmed that the miners long been professionally exposed to heavy metals, in the blood have an increased content of heavy metals (lead, zinc and cadmium) and they have affect the change of some haematological parameters, resulting in the emergence of certain diseases with complex etiology. The multidisciplinary elaboration of the topic, suggests the need for a more serious approach to this important phenomenon, impact of heavy metals in exposed workers.
