Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) grown around refuse and effluent sites of District Sargodha, Pakistan were analyzed for six metals and metalloids viz., cobalt (Co), nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), arsenic (As), zinc (Zn) and selenium (Se) by atomic absorption spectrophotometric method. Results showed that the concentrations of Co, Ni, Cu, As, Zn and Se at both sites were below the permissible limit. The levels of heavy metal and metalloid (mg/kg dry wt.) in vegetable at site-I were 0.83 for Co, 4… CONTINUE READING
