Salmon rely on smell to find prey, avoid predators and navigate. Exposure to metals like cadmium impairs that sense, threatening salmon survival.

People respond to contaminant exposures differently, in part due to the levels of protective enzymes that they produce.
Contaminated shallow lakes have more arsenic in their water meaning higher risk for humans.
