Toxic heavy metal pollution is found naturally in the earth, and become concentrated as a result of human activity and most of them can be toxic to all forms of life at high concentrations due to formation of complex compounds. Unlike organic pollutants, heavy metals once introduced into the environment cannot be biodegraded. They persist indefinitely and cause pollution of air, water, and soil and even effect the living sources.
