    Cadmium?

    Tim, please explain about your cadmium comment. I have seen this mentioned before in posts. What papers used cadmium?

    The reason for my question is that I have tested positive in the past for cadmium toxicity in my system. Always wondered where I would be exposed to cadmium.

    Firstly Loren, the inclusion of cadmium has been prohibited by many countries for some years now. Of current papers the only one that is alleged to still contain cadmium is Fomatone, but this will disappear soon under EEC directives.

    The second point is that Cadmium has been banned because of its impact on the enviroment, resulting from discharge etc, mostly in the manufacturing process. I am not aware of any firm data showing harm to individuals from handling and processing these papers in the darkroom.
