The primary threats to human health from heavy metals are related to exposure to lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic [1-3]. These metals had been largely studied and their results on human wellbeing most commonly reviewed by way of global our bodies such because the WHO. Heavy metals had been utilized by people for hundreds and hundreds of years. Even though a number of hostile well-being results of heavy metals [4-7] were recognized for a very long time, exposure to heavy metals continues, and… Expand

Kinetic Study of Removal of Toxic Metals by a Mixed Bacterial Culture Isolated from East Calcutta Wetlands
Nowadays, one of the most prominent contributors in environmental pollution, specifically in case of soil and ground water pollution is industrial effluent which is laden with heavy metals like lead,Expand
A novel method based on functionalized bimodal mesoporous silica nanoparticles for efficient removal of lead aerosols pollution from air by solid-liquid gas-phase extraction
The characterization of SEM, XRD, TEM, and FTIR showed that the HS-UVM 7 has beneficial surfaces for removal of Pb (NO 3 ) 2 and PbO aerosols from the air by SLGPE method at pH = 5.5. Expand


Detection, Identification and Characterization of Some Heavy Metals Tolerant Bacteria
In developed agricultural systems, inorganic fertilizers are applied to the soil to supply the essential nutrients required for the growth of plants. Many agricultural and industrial practices haveExpand
Ecological risk assessment of heavy metals in sediment and human health risk assessment of heavy metals in fishes in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River basin.
Investigation of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River in China found that heavy metals may be mainly derived from metal processing, electroplating industries, industrial wastewater, and domestic sewage, and Hg may also originate from coal combustion. Expand
Dispersal of heavy metals from abandoned mine workings and their transference through terrestrial food chains
Abstract Past exploitation of metalliferous ores has resulted in extensive metal contamination of surface soils in the vicinity of a derelict mine complex. Soil lead and zinc concentrations wereExpand
Arsenic Exposure: Mechanisms of Action and Related Health Effects
Arsenic represents a natural drinking water contaminant that can deteriorate health due to its extreme toxic nature. Infant mortality, neuropathies, liver disease, cancer, eye diseases,Expand
Cadmium in small mammals from grassland established on metalliferous mine waste
The principal target organ for cadmium accumulation was kidney in M. agrestis at both sites and S. araneus at the control site, but the liver adopted this role with the higher body concentrations from the mine site. Expand
Heavy metal toxicity, Part I: arsenic and mercury.
The discussion of clinical toxicity focuses on the nervous, cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, and renal systems, as well as on the teratogenic effects of mercury. Expand
Heavy Metal Toxicity and Therapeutics
It has long been known that heavy metal ions can be toxic and carcinogenic. Many metals such as arsenic and chromium induce cellular damages and carcinogenesis by increasing free radical generationExpand
Detection, Identification and Characterization of Some Heavy MetalsTolerant Bacteria
The results of this study showed the potential applicability of the isolated heavy metal-tolerant strain Pseudomonas aeruginosa (S7) in the treatment of heavy metal containing solutions. Expand
Microorganisms and Biosorption of Heavy Metals in the Environment: A Review Paper
In this review a brief overview of the potential of biosorbents and biosorption processes were critically reviewed and some of the analysis of different low-cost biosorbent used for heavy metal remediation from waste stream were described. Expand
