Tests the presence of ions of manganese to a high degree of accuracy to
detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment
Manganese Toxicity Symptoms
Some individuals exposed to very high levels of manganese for long periods of time in their work developed
mental and emotional disturbances and slow and clumsy body movements. This combination of symptoms is a
disease called "manganism." Workers usually do not develop symptoms of manganism unless they have been
exposed to manganese for many months or years. Manganism occurs because too much manganese injures a part
of the brain that helps control body movements.
Exposure to high levels of airborne manganese, such as in a manganese foundry or battery plant, can affect
motor skills such as holding one's hand steady, performing fast hand movements, and maintaining balance.
Exposure to high levels of the metal may also cause respiratory problems and sexual dysfunction.
The EPA has determined that manganese is not classifiable as to human carcinogenicity.
Manganese Toxicity Limits
The EPA has set a non-enforceable guideline for the level of manganese in drinking water at 0.05 milligrams
per liter (0.05 mg/L).
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set a limit of 5 milligrams manganese per cubic
meter (5 mg/m³) of workplace air for the average amount of manganese during an 8-hour workday, 40-hour workweek.
The National Research Council has recommended safe and adequate daily intake levels for manganese that range from 0.3
to 1 mg/day for children up to 1 year, 1 to 2 mg/day for children up to age 10, and 2 to 5 mg/day for children 10 and older.
The upper limit of safety for organic manganese established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine is
approximately 11 mg daily for adults.
There should be no concentrations of inorganic manganese in the body
