Thanks for your query.

Yes, long term exposure to chromium is reported to result in Non Hodgkins disease.The risk increases by at-least 70 times when compared to people with no exposure.

This relation is still under study, the exact dose and duration appeared much variable in different subjects.Hence a strict cut-off has not yet been established.

Hope I answered your query.

Please come up with follow ups , if any.

Wish you good health.
