  • Health risk assessment with respect to heavy metals concentration and consumption of fish (Sarotherodon melanotheron) obtained from Azuabie creek was carried out. Five fish samples composited were obtained from fishermen on a monthly basis from January December 2015. Heavy metals (Cr, Ni, Cu, Pb, Ag and Cd) analysis was done using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometery while health risk to consumers was evaluated using Estimated Daily Intake, Target Harzard Quotient, Hazard Index and Target… CONTINUE READING
