A large amount of inhalation can cause acute pneumonia and pulmonary edema; Chronic poisoning causes pulmonary fibrosis and kidney disease. Industries exposed to cadmium include cadmium smelting, spraying, welding and casting bearing surfaces, cadmium rods of nuclear reactors or cadmium covered graphite rods as neutron absorbers, cadmium batteries and other cadmium compounds. Japan reported that "pain disease" is a chronic cadmium poisoning caused by long-term consumption of water polluted by cadmium sulfate.
