Effect of Environmental Pollution on Quality of Meat in District Bagh, Azad Kashmir

Syed Mubbasher Sabir , Sardar Waheed Khan and Imran Hayat

Abstract:
The meat consumed by the people is sold in the open market and even on the roadsides. Special attention was focused on the determination of selected essential/heavy metals in meat samples. For assessing daily environmental contamination, sixteen meat samples of four varieties (Fish, beef, mutton and chicken) were purchased from local market and different spots of Nalahs (ravine). The samples were analyzed for the estimation of trace metals such as Pb, Cu, Ni, Zn along with Ca, Mg and Fe. The overall concentration of Pb, Ni, Zn and Mn were found small (0-4 ppm). Among major elements Fe was found quite high (600-7000 ppm). The Ca (600-2000 ppm) and Mg (800-1300 ppm) levels were also higher. Fe was recorded higher in beef and mutton, Ca in fish and mutton and Mg in mutton, chicken and fish were comparatively noted high.
