Exposure to heavy metals is an important problem of environmental toxicology. Most of these metals are toxic to humans, animals and plants. Anthropogenic activities are the major sources of heavy metals redistribution. Man, being at the top of the food chain, is at great risk of suffering from health hazards associated with toxic metals because of bioaccumulation The aim of this study was the evaluation of the heavy metals contents in the food of the Eastern Romania area.
The study presents the results obtained in 2002-2003 period of some metals [Pb, Cd, Zn, Cu] in the food (meat, milk, vegetables, diets), in Eastern Romania area. Trace elements concentrations were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrophotometry, using a Carl Zeiss Jena, Model AAS-1N, with flame air-acethylene
In all analysed samples these metals were found. Generally, a wide variation between individual samples was observed.
