The south coastal area of California contains agricultural soils that are important producers of vegetables for the nation. Some of these soils contain anomalous, high concentrations of cadmium which are variably reflected as increases of the cadmium concentration of the vegetables growing thereon. The response ranges from strong to moderate to zero increase in tissue cadmium with increasing soil cadmium. Although the source of the high levels of cadmium is the rocks of the region and is not anthropogenic, it is considered likely that some steps should be taken to diminish dietary exposure to local consumers and especially to vegetable gardeners with large gardens.
