原始语种摘要: The contamination of leafy vegetables with heavy metals poses a serious threat to humans but little attention has been given to such studies in Nigeria. Investigated in this study are the levels of concentration of three heavy metals; Zn, Cu and Pb in some leafy vegetables viz., cockscomb ( Celosia argentea ), african spinach ( Amarathus viridis ), , jute plant ( Corchorus olitorus ) and lettuce ( Lactuca capensis ) from four farmlands designated as Idi - araba, Isolo, Owode - Onirin and Badore in Lagos Metropolis. The concentrations of Cu, Zn and Pb in the leaves, stems and roots of cockscomb, african spinach, jute plant and lettuce were found to be 1.542 – 0.125, 88.417 – 17.700, 7.568 – 0.028; 1.633 – 0.125, 82.417 – 18.250, 16.334 – 0.083; 1.583 – 0.028, 17.542 – 8.243, 10.833 –...
