Abstract

This study is aimed at throwing light on the concentrations of lead in the muscles, liver, kidneys, spleen and hearts of different animals (swine, sheep, and goat) from three different localities around Probistip. A total of 450 samples were collected for this purpose and lead concentrations were analysed using atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Results showed that lead concentrations are dependent on the sampling locality, the organ and animal species. The concentrations of lead in liver and kidney taken from the industrial area were higher compared to other localities from which samples of tissue were taken for analysis.
