The residues of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in soils from organic farms and their uptake by four varieties of organic-produced potatoes and three varieties of organic carrots from England were investigated. Samples of the soils, crop peels and cores were all Soxhlet-extracted in(More)

The efficiencies of acidic solutions (radish, citric acid, ascorbic acid, acetic acid and hydrogen peroxide), neutral solutions (sodium chloride) and alkaline solution (sodium carbonate) as well as tap water in the elimination of organochlorine and organophosphorus pesticides from naturally contaminated potatoes were examined. The results indicated that(More)
The residues of persistence potentially toxic organic compounds polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were measured in 13 species of edible vegetables collected from Great Cairo governorate (Egypt). And the efficient role of washing by oxidizing agents hydrogen peroxide (H O ), potassium permanganates (KMnO ) 2 2 4 and midribs of cabbage leaves solutions on the(More)
The efficiencies of medicinal herbs (damaseisa, and rosemary); plants solutions (radish and barley); polypeptide solutions (nisin); neutral solutions (sodium chloride) and acidic solutions (acetic acid), as well as tap water, in the elimination of lead from naturally contaminated bolty fish were examined. The results indicate the efficient role of washing(More)
Aflatoxins are highly toxic, mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic compounds produced by some species of Aspergillus, especially A. flavus and A. parasiticus. This study was conducted investigate the effect of some strains of probiotic bacteria against toxicity induced by contaminated diet with aflatoxins in male rats. Animals were divided into 6 equal(More)
