Spanish scientists say they've confirmed the presence of zinc, copper and lead at high levels in the Huelva estuary's water and sediments in southwest Spain. The team of researchers from the University of Cadiz also studied how some of the heavy metals are transferred to fish and discovered zinc, cadmium and copper accumulate in the body tissues of sole and gilthead bream. We found positive correlations between the levels of some metals in the waters of the Huelva estuary and those in the...

Cadmium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Cd and atomic number 48. A relatively rare, soft, bluish-white, toxic transition metal, cadmium occurs with zinc ores and is used largely in batteries. Notable characteristics Cadmium is a soft, malleable, ductile, bluish-white bivalent metal which can be easily cut with a knife. It is similar in many respects to zinc but lends itself to more complex compounds. The most common oxidation state of cadmium is +2,...
