    Exposure to cadmium fumes may cause chills, fever, and muscle ache. These effects may last for a week if exposure ceases. Long-term exposure can lead to tracheo-bronchitis, pneumonitis, and pulmonary edema, with symptoms including cough, throat dryness, throat irritation, headache, dizziness, fever, chills, and chest pain. Direct inhalation of cadmium dust is very severe; health effects include respiratory tract and irreversible kidney failure. Ingesting any amount of cadmium is also very severe and can cause immediate poisoning and kidney and liver damage. Other effects include a loss of bone density and joint pain.
