Abstract

Two therapeutical garlic oil macerates (in olive oil and shark liver oil) were studied in order to establish the amounts of pollutants. A quantitative analysis of seven heavy metals (Cd, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) and nine organochlorine pesticides (lindan, HCB, DDT, DDE, DDD, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, endrin) was carried out. The results of the experiments led to the conclusion that both oil macerates had low contents of Cd, Cu, Mn, Pb, Zn and some amounts of organochlorine pesticides (lindan, HCB, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, endrin).
