Calculation of health risk index of toxic metal contamination of Cucumis sativus fruit
m] = level of toxic metal in Cucumis sativus fruit or soil (mg/kg); IR = ingestion rate per unit time (mg/day) is 0.
An estimate of the potential hazard of toxic metal to human health (HQ) through consumption of Cucumis sativus fruit was determined by the following equation:
where CDI= chronic daily intake through oral ingestion (mg/kg/day) for toxic metals in Cucumis sativus fruit (mg/kg/day) for non-carcinogens or carcinogens and RfD is the chronic oral reference dose for the toxic metals (mg/kg of body weight/day), which is the daily exposure of individuals to toxins or pollutants that can pose no appreciable hazard in their lifetime.
Levels of essential and toxic metals in soil and Cucumis sativus (cucumber) plant parts
Bioaccumulation factor, transfer factor in plant organs and geo-accumulation index of soil pollution from Cucumis sativus farm
Cucumis sativus plant is an accumulator (bioaccumulation factor >1) of magnesium and calcium in all plant parts, sodium in the leaf and fruit, cadmium in the shoot, lead in the root and shoot, nickel in the shoot and leaf and zinc in the shoot, leaf and fruit.
Health risk through ingestion of Cucumis sativus fruit and farm soil
Estimated dietary intake of metal (DIM), chronic dietary intake (CDI) and non-carcinogenic hazard quotient (HQ) were used to assess the health risk of ingestion of toxic metals in Cucumis sativus fruit and the farm soil.
Cucumis sativus and Cocos nucifera are examples of crops with hardly any close wild relatives.
