What is the situation in Luxembourg with regard to the exposure to heavy metals of the population?

According to a study by the French public health, children who eat a lot of organic vegetables have been found to have a higher concentration of copper in their bodies. DP MP Gusty Graas asked what the situation was in Luxembourg.

« En juillet 2021, la Santé Publique France a présenté une étude sur l’exposition de la population française à des métaux lourds. Ce rapport conclut entre autres que la consommation fréquente de légumes issus de l’agriculture biologique est associée chez les enfants à une augmentation des concentrations urinaires en cuivre.

Dans ce contexte, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé et à Madame la Ministre de la Protection des consommateurs :

  • Une étude pareille a-t-elle déjà été effectuée au Luxembourg ? Dans l’affirmative, quels en sont les résultats ?
  • Dans la négative, une telle étude est-elle prévue ? Le cas échéant, Madame la Ministre pourrait-elle donner des précisions à ce sujet ? 
  • À la connaissance de Madame la Ministre, quels sont les principaux facteurs exposant la population luxembourgeoise à des métaux lourds ? »
