Heavy metals and carcinogenesis: a review

Abstract

There has been a growing recognition regarding heavy metal toxicity owing to their position in cancer induction. The study is linked to heavy metals like titanium, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, lead, mercury, nickel and radium. A meta-analysis was compiled using PubMed to determine existing exposure channels, forms of cancers caused, and treatment interventions for the metals. It was planned to lead potential study activities linked to heavy metals and cancer.
