Heavy Metal Content

Heavy metals are naturally found compounds in the earth’s crust. Some elements that fall into the heavy metal group enter our bodies in various ways (food, water, air, etc.). Although trace amounts are necessary for the healthy continuation of our body functions, most of the elements in this group have a toxic effect for our body.

Heavy metals found in our body can also be found in the structures of food in a variety of ways and can cause bioaccumulation. For example, in the tissues of living creatures at sea bottoms, such as the accumulation of heavy metals such as mercury (Hg), lead (Pb) Cadmium (Cd).

These heavy metals, which can be found in foods, can have extremely risky health consequences. These health problems can invite many hereditary diseases, especially cancer.

Analysis of Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Arsenic (As) Sodium (Na), Zinc (Zn), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Potassium (K) Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Nickel (Nickel) and Selenium Tin (Sn) analyses are analyses that should be looked at in the structures of food.
