Manganese is an essential element found in rock, soil, water, and food. While food is the most important source of exposure for the general population, significant exposure can also occur via the consumption of contaminated drinking water.

Anthropogenic sources of exposure arise from the use of manganese ore in the production of steel and dry cell batteries, in pesticides, and in the ceramics and glass manufacturing industries. Workers in these settings may be exposed to higher levels via inhalation of manganese dusts. Other groups at risk of higher exposures include infants given prepared infant foods and formulas, and people living in the vicinity of ferro-manganese or iron and steel manufacturing facilities, coal-fired power plants, or hazardous waste sites.
