MetadataShow full item record
The highest arsenic concentrations in Serbia are measured in drinking water in the Middle Banat region within Vojvodina. The research was designed as a registry-based cross-sectional study comprising two separate populations in Serbia. Mean arsenic concentrations in drinking water from public water supply systems in 383 samples in Middle Banat region was 56.1 μg/L, Median value 38.0 μg/L, range 1.0–349.0 μg/L. This cross-sectional study showed that population from Middle Banat region in Serbia, exposed to low levels of arsenic in drinking water, was at higher risk for the occurrence of type 2 diabetes, in comparison to the unexposed population in Central Serbia. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
