Some heavy metals like Ar, Cd and Pb have been reported to have no known bio-importance in human biochemistry and physiology and consumption even at very low concentrations can be toxic (Yahaya et al., 2010). Industrial exposure accounts for a common route of exposure for adults. Ingestion is the most common route of exposure in children. Children may develop toxic levels from the normal hand-to-mouth activity of small children who come in contact with contaminated soil or by actually eating objects that are not food (dirt or paint chips). Less common routes of exposure are during a radiological procedure, from inappropriate dosing or monitoring during intravenous (parenteral) nutrition, from a broken thermometer, or from a suicide or homicide attempt (Life Extension Information Centre, 2011)
