    Abstract: Heavy metal contamination is a serious threat because of their toxicity, bio-magnification and bioaccumulation in food chain. The deficiency of some of these metal elements leads to impairment of vital biological process but when they are present in excess, they become toxic. Raw bovine milk is considered as one of the food sources contaminated wit... Show More
