MetadataShow full item record
High levels of metal lead, a hazardous chemical substance, were found in various kinds of rice and fish in the Philippines, according to a study. The study conducted by Dr. Judilynn Solidum, a pharmacist and faculty member of the University of the Philippines-Manila, found that 10 kinds of rice and fish that were randomly bought in markets in Metro Manila contained high levels of metal lead that exceeded acceptable safety limits. The samples were analyzed using a Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (FAAS) to identify the chemical composition found in the rice and fish.
