The intake of aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury via the daily diet by Iranian population groups was determined.
The relevant daily diets were prepared through dietary recording and duplicate portion, and the trace elements were measured
using analytical methods based on NAA, ICP and AAS. The results for the Iranian diets are discussed and compared with corresponding
ones from other countries. The project has been performed in the frame of a co-ordinated research project of the International
Atomic Energy Agency with participants from various countries.
