Abstract:

Interacting Cadmium as a critical pollution dilemma which includes human health risks currently in sight is one of the key issues in today’s context because of the severe impacts to human health. Here, the experiment was aimed to specifically the effect of powder of leaves of leek plants on blood parameters and internal organs when toxicity effects of cadmium elements to rats were considered. The experimental groups consisted of a negative control (T1: Option 1: For the experiment, T1 was used as the control in which cadmium was injected to rats at a concentration of 0.4 μg/L, T2 was chosen as the positive control with 25.7 μg/L of cadmium injected to rats, while T3 and T4 were the therapeutic interventions where rats were given 2% Results demonstrated that cadmium (T2) significantly impacted blood cadmium levels (25.7 μg/L) compared to control (T1: Concentrations of 2µm/L and higher were lethal (kidneys 5.4g/L, testes 5.1g/L, liver 19.1g/L, heart 0.8g/L and spleen 2.2g/L) and were damaging to internal organs compared to control (T1: Kidneys 2.8 g/ As to Cadmium, we had increased enzyme levels in the blood at the conclusion compared to the control. AST was 22.5 U/l, ALT was 29.1 U/l and Alkaline Phosphatase was 18.3 IU/l in T1, and in T2, AST was 60.1 U/l, ALT was The pharmaceutical approach with leek was the best option compared to the others that gave the better outcomes which made the livers' functionality disrupted, blood cadmium levels, and internal organ weights. The article suggests leek, covering 2% of the dose, being a promising therapeutic agent in heavy metal cadmium detoxification. To date, such study is the first in the line of such researches that aims to demonstrate leek's presence as a component in cadmium toxicity remedy.
