This study was planned to examine the possible heavy metal intake from olive oils produced in Guzelyurt area, TRNC. It was aimed to assess the concentrations of Cr, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Cd, and Pb in olive oil produced in this region. It was also aimed to evaluate the possible health effects of heavy metal uptake through olive oil intake by assessing the average olive oil consumption. The data was collected from 500 individuals aged 30-49, living in Guzelyurt area. The mean daily olive oil consumption of men was 32.35 17.49g and women was 25.33 14.63g. The heavy metal contribution to Acceptable Daily Intake levels (ADIs) due to olive oil consumption for all heavy metals was less than 1% for all individuals. In addition, the calculated Health Risk Index (HRI) values were 1 for all heavy metals. It can be concluded that the heavy metal uptake due to the daily olive oil consumption of individuals, living in Guzelyurt region of TRNC, might not cause any risks for health problems.
