Heavy metals are highly toxic elements with density five times more to the water molecule. In animals including humans, there are different processes such as ingestion, absorption, etc through which they enter into the body. When heavy metal accumulates at a higher rate than the discharge then they become harmful for the animal. Anthropogenic activities of humans are the major cause of contamination of the environment and of medium-size cities. Burning of the fossil fuels, mining, and use of the chemical substances in the crop, etc. are the parts of anthropogenic activities that contribute pollutants in the environment.
