ABSTRACT

Excessive amount of heavy metals are very harmful for our body. Lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, copper and zinc are some common heavy metals. These are commonly found in soil, air and food. These are responsible for many neurological and skin diseases. Due to excessive industrial emission and excessive use of pesticides these heavy metals are contaminating water, air and soil. Lead is commonly found in paint & food container. Cigarette contains arsenic and cadmium. Some sea food like fish contains mercury, arsenic and cadmium. So these are the commonest sources of heavy metals for human. Long exposure to these heavy metals acts as Dushi visha in our body & due to this human faces many dangerous diseases. Some heavy metals like lead, arsenic, mercury and copper are described in Ayurveda and their hazards in state of impurities. After purification heavy metals are used in ayurvedic formulations.
