  The objective of this research is to determine the concentration of arsenic in wells and boreholes water in Zaria, to see whether the concentration level is sufficient enough to affect the health of the people living in the area under study. In this study arsenic concentrations of sixty well and five bore hole water samples collected from Zaria and environs were determined using standard procedures. The results obtained shows that arsenic concentrations ranged from <0.002 to 0.51 mg L-1, with 75% of the samples above the World Health Organization drinking water guideline. Bore whole water samples were found to contain less arsenic compared with the shallow well water samples studied. Most wells and boreholes in Zaria were found to be contaminated with abnormal concentration of arsenic sufficient enough to cause serious health hazards to the users.

  The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the level of inorganic chemical cadmium (Cd) in wells and boreholes water in Zaria is sufficient to affect the health of the inhabitants of the area under study. Sixty open wells and 5 boreholes were randomly selected from Zaria and environs. Water samples were collected from the open wells and boreholes using standard techniques. In the study, Cd concentrations of the samples was determined using standard procedures. WHO acceptable limit for drinking water was used in the evaluation. Result obtained shows that Cd concentrations ranged from <0.001 to 0.28 mg L-1 with 68% of the samples above the WHO water guideline. Most of the open wells and boreholes water studied were contaminated with abnormal concentration of cadmium sufficient enough to affect the health of the inhabitants of the area.

  Toxicity studies on the methanolic extract of Portulaca oleracea L. were carried out on mice intraperitoneally. The LD50 was calculated using the methods of Miller and Tainter (LD50, 1853.5 mg kg-1), Reed and Muench (LD50, 1871 mg kg-1) and Karber method (LD50, 1875 mg kg-1) these values placed the plant to be moderately toxic. Histopathological findings revealed that the extract has effect on the kidney, lung and liver in a dose dependent manner.
