Public Health and Nutrition CBC News recently reported that close to 8 million acres of farmland in China is too polluted to use for growing food. There is a high concentration of heavy metals and other chemicals in the soil, and some of these pollutants have already made it into the food chain through rice and other crops. Cadmium is a carcinogenic metal that can cause kidney damage, is absorbed by rice, and is of particular concern.16 A random sample of farmland near Guangzhou was identified, and samples of soil were taken from each. The concentration of cadmium in each sample was measured. Assume that the distribution of the concentration of cadmium is continuous. Use the Wilcoxon signed-rank test to determine whether there is any evidence that the median cadmium concentration is greater than 1 ppm. Use a = 0.05 and find the p value for this test.
