EFFECT OF CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) AND AZADIRACHTA (NEEM) ON CADMIUM ACCUMULATION IN WHOLE BODY OF FISH DANIO RERIO

SATABDI DAS, BIKASH KANTI BISWAS AND APARAJITA BISWAS

Abstract

Cadmium is one of the most toxic heavy metals. Cadmium will invariably be present in our society, either in useful products in the form of nickel-cadmium batteries, dyes, plastics, electrochemistry, paint pigments or in controlled wastes as a major source of pollution. Traditional herbs have more acceptance than prescription drugs in many cultures. In our present investigation, two herbal products, curcumin (turmeric) and neem (Azadirachta indica), were used to study their effect on cadmium bioaccumulation in whole body of fish Danio rerio . It was found that the accumulation of Cd was minimized to the level of control when the fishes were treated with Cd and neem in combination. Turmemic also reduced the accumulation, but the rate was lower.
