Abstract:

In recent scenario due to indiscriminate human activities the heavy metal pollution is very much concerned because of their toxicity for animal and human beings and their lack of biodegradability. Heavy metal toxicity is linked with a number of diseases but the severity of situation multiplies too many folds if these heavy metals are found in milk, which is the basic food item of vulnerable age group of people. Heavy metal when reaches human and animal body through various absorption pathways such as direct ingestion, dermal contact, diet through the soil-food chain, inhalation and oral intake may seriously affect their health. Contamination of environment leads to contamination of food chain, which the main rout the entry of heavy metal in the animal body which ultimately causes contamination of milk and animal originated food. Therefore, several management practices like treatment of industrial water, use of heavy metal free water and feed for animal production can reduce the heavy metal level in the milk.
