Correction

During the publication process of this work [1], we noted that the column for nickel in table 2 was not showing the concentration values in the proper units. This change has been made in the updated table (see table 2).
Table 2

Concentrations (mean μg.kg-1 ± standard error) of arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead and nickel as measured in hair and bladder tissue, from controls and case lesions.
