Correlation Between Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behavior with Blood Cadmium Levels in the Population of Industrial Area
Keywords:Cadmium, Knowledge, Behavior, Attitude, Industrial area
Objectives: The aim of this analysis is to investigate the correlation between knowledge, attitude, and
behavior with cadmium level in the industrial population. Methods: This research is a non-experimental
study with cross-sectional method. The subjects are 108 respondents live in industrial area. Questionnaires
were used for measuring the level of knowledge, attitude, and behavior. Cadmium levels were measured using
Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AAS). Results: The result showed a strong correlation between
levels of knowledge factor and cadmium with r = -0,272* in the population of industrial areas. Meanwhile,
knowledge have significant correlation with attitude (r = 0.528**). Conclusion: Knowledge factor has
the significant relationship with cadmium levels in the population of industrial area. The government is
suggested to improve the knowledge of the people in the industrial area in order to prevent high levels of
cadmium. Therefore, the negative impact of metal waste exposure on health can be minimized.
