    Heavy metals are elements that have relatively high density and are toxic or poisonous even at low concentrations, but excessive levels can be detrimental to the organism (Hem, 1992). The ecological crisis of environmental pollution has been blamed on different factors and one of the major factors is the pollution due to metals in the environment.
