Abstract

The aim of this work was to determine the associations among arsenic (As) exposure, adiposity, and inflammatory cytokines in 384 adolescents aged 12-15 years in a cross-sectional study. As was measured by total As concentration in urine adjusted by creatinine, adiposity was assessed using Body Mass Index (BMI) and bioimpedance segmental body composition, cytokines were determined by standard procedures. Our results show prevalence of overweight and obesity of 39.5%. Median (interquartile range) of total As in urine was 36.2 (26.01, 46.8) μg/g creatinine. We found an inverse association between As exposure and the percentage of total body fat, which was no dependent from inflammatory cytokines.
