Modern Science as well as medical sciences is drifting from curative to preventive measures. In This monograph "Potential Heavy Metals in Canned Foods and Drinks" the Author brought to awareness some of these toxic metals under headings of medical,homeuse and scholarly importance like: • Sources of these Heavy metals • Their target organs • Mechanism of their toxicity and • Their symptoms. The chemistry behind the detining of tin plate cans, subsequent corrosion and leaching of metals from cans to the food or drink contents was simplified. Besides the role played by certain physicochemical parameters, the book also covers the quantitative estimation of these metals using the Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy prior to wet acid digestion methods. Experimental details and preparation of reagents will be highly appreciated by users. Another striking feature of the book is the computed series of health implications and the concluding fact that "canning of semi -solid to liquid food and drinks could be a menace especially for foods in lead soldered unlaquared tin plate cans"
