    Abstract :

    The objective of study is to determine the toxicity in untreated waste water effluent of industries (Beverage). The samples have been collected from discharged sampling points of industries, contributing to the heavy metal pollutants in the surrounding aquatic environment. The toxic heavy metals (e.g chromium (Cr), cadmium (Cd), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), lead (Pb), when released in aquatic environment will enter the food chain through biological / food cycle, causing various health problems in humans beings . The results of analysis indicate that there is need to strong initiative for improvement of effluent treatment system to discharge the treated and safe water in the environment, which will finally help to prevent the entry of metallic contaminants in the Food Cycle Chain.
