Abstract
Environmental pollution by heavy metals, particularly by Cd, Pb and Hg are studied. After dealing in general with radioactive and non-radioactive metals and their effect on the environment, a detailed account of the pollution of the environment by Cd, Pb and Hg is given. The health hazards involved are described and the means of reducing pollution by the treatment and recycling of industrial wastes and effluents are studied.
