Abstract

The present study was aimed to estimate the concentration of selenium Se and toxic metals( mercury Hg and
lead pb) in canned and fresh (meat and fish) from different countries, the results show that the concentrations
of Se were above the limits and was ranged between 6.25 ppm to 19.12 ppm in fresh and canned meat and
between 0.27 ppm to 9.23 ppm in fresh and canned fish, the concentration of Hg was also above the permitted
limits and was ranged between 0.002 ppm to 2.1 ppm in fresh and canned meat and between 0.1ppm to 3.5
ppm in fresh and canned fish, while the concentration of pb was within the limits and was ranged between
0.029 ppm to 2.3 ppm in fresh and canned meat and between 0.095 ppm to1.59ppm in fresh and canned fish.
