Health risk assessment through determining bioaccumulation of iron in forages grown in soil irrigated with city effluent.

Environ Sci Pollut Res Int 2019 May 12;26(14):14277-14286. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

The irrigation with sewage water can be useful if it has no negative effects on food crop yield, soil pollution, and health of humans. However, it includes various types of contaminants like heavy metals that pollute the soil and crops. In this regard, the aim of this study was to evaluate the possible health risks of heavy metals in forages. Forages both of summer and winter were grown with different water treatments (sewage water and tap water) in Department of Botany, University of Sargodha. The concentration of iron (Fe) in water, soil, and plant samples was determined. The Fe values in tap and sewage water were observed as 0.090 and 0.115 mg/L, respectively. The highest mean concentration of Fe was 9.608 mg/kg in the soil where Trifolium alexandrinum is grown, and the lowest mean concentration was 0.154 mg/kg which occurred in the soil where Trifolium resupinatum is grown in winter. The maximum mean concentration of Fe in the root samples of plants was observed as 2.483 mg/kg in Pennisetum typhoideum, and the minimum mean concentration occurred as 0.390 mg/kg in Zea mays grown in summer. The maximum bioconcentration factor value of Fe was observed for T. resupinatum (5.259) grown in winter. The maximum pollution load index value of Fe was observed for T. alexandrinum (0.1688). The maximum value of daily intake of metals was observed as 0.0731 in Medicago sativa, and the maximum health risk index value was determined as 0.1091 in P. typhoideum.

Objective: The assessment of the level of contamination is a noteworthy step towards counteracting ecological contamination. Anthropogenic activities are responsible for the contamination of the environment. Materials and methods: The present study was conducted in Sahiwal, Sargodha, Pakistan, to ascertain the level of different heavy metals (Co, Fe, Cu, Cr, Mn, Zn, and Ni) in a wheat variety (Faisala-bad– 2008) treated with varying quantities of domestic wastewater. Metals were measured by using atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS). Results: Soil and wheat grains showed considerable amounts of heavy metals and metalloids after wastewater irrigation. Soil had a higher Fe level while wheat grains had a higher Cd level compared with the other studied metals. Positive and significant results were obtained for correlations between wheat grains and soil for Cr, Co, Ni, Fe, Zn, Cd, and Mn. Values of bioconcentration factor were high for Zn. In all treatments, Cd had higher health risk index, daily intake of metals, and pollution load index; however, the value of daily intake of metals for Cd was below 1 and within the tolerable limit. Mn had the highest enrichment factor value, while Cr had the lowest. Conclusion: Application of untreated wastewater caused toxicity in humans due to metal accumulation in the edible parts of food crops. The only solution to eliminate health concerns due to the application of wastewater is its treatment prior to irrigation.

Mineral, vitamin and phenolic contents and sugar profiles of some prominent date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) varieties of Pakistan

In this study, fruits of date (Phoenix dactylifera L.) varieties were analyzed to assess their nutritional characteristics. Mineral profile analysis of twenty-one date varieties grown in Pakistan was performed. The results of mineral profile analysis proved that dates were a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium, but were deficient in sodium content and hence are very suitable fruit for hypertensive people. Sugar profile analysis showed that the maximum glucose content was recorded in Zaidy (44.44%) and fructose content in Karblain (33.21%) and the maximum sucrose percentage was found in Hillavi (6.99%). Vitamin (B1, B2, and B3) analyses revealed that vitamin B1 was not present in detectable amount in the date varieties. The highest concentration of vitamin B2 was detected in Khopra (0.031 mg per 100g), while the highest concentration of vitamin B3 was verified in Zaidy (2.73 mg per 100g). The range of the total phenolic contents ranged from 142.52±0.64 to 298.02±0.95 mg gallic acid equivalent per 100 g on fresh fruit weight basis. All date varieties proved to be a good source of phenolic compounds, therefore, they possess high antioxidant capacity. It was concluded that Dhakki, Hillavi and Aseel Sindh varieties might suit well for diet because of their good nutritional properties.
