Toxicology and public health studies in ethnic communities. César Yanko Cervantes Benavides is a researcher of Latin American origin, focused on vulnerability studies in indigenous groups. These vulnerabilities include social and racial segregation, the consequences of climate change, genotoxic and neurotoxic effects on human health due to the consumption of water contaminated with heavy metals, as well as the analysis of public policies developed for ethnic minorities. He is currently working at the Campus Fryslan, designing a research project on the vulnerability faced by ethnic groups in arid areas with water scarcity, following exposure to contaminants such as arsenic, due to the consumption of water contaminated by effluents from mining and agricultural activities. His study also focuses on the analysis of public health policies more oriented to the worldview of the ethnic minorities themselves. The main objective of his research is to characterize the perception of environmental risk in the Yaqui ethnic group in southern Sonora, Mexico, and to determine, through biological screening, the level of exposure to heavy metals and malnutrition experienced by ethnic minorities such as the Yaqui ethnic group.
