This study aimed to determine bioavailable heavy metal concentrations (As, Cd,
Co, Cu, Cr, Ni, Pb, Zn) and their potential sources in classroom dust collected
from children’s hand palms in Rawang (Malaysia). This study also aimed to
determine the association between bioavailable heavy metal concentration in
classroom dust and children’s respiratory symptoms. Health risk assessment (
HRA) was applied to evaluate health risks (non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic)
due to heavy metals in classroom dust.
