Food is contaminated, to a more or lesser degree by antibiotic drugs, pesticides, additives, industrial fall-out onto crops and animal foodstuffs.

It is recognized as elixir of life and known as general solvent in its pure form. But in the present scenario surface and ground water is terribly polluted by organic and inorganic contaminants.  Some of these pollutants, noticeably heavy metals are potentially hazardous to human health even in minute quantities. The presence of high concentration of heavy metals such as chromium(Cr), mercury(Hg), cadmium(Cd), nickel(Ni), lead(Pb) and arsenic(As) in natural water supplies and aqueous waste streams of many industries, such as tanneries, textiles, mining and electroplating facilities, paper and pulp processing are critical health and environmental issue. [4,5] Chromium is common pollutant introduced into natural water supplies due to discharge of industrial effluents generated by leather tanning, textile, and metal finishing.
