The effect of high concentration of heavy metals on human health and the environment has attracted considerable attention in recent years as plants are the main route in the transfer of heavy metals from contaminated soil to humans. The aim of this study is to assess the concentration of (Copper, Iron, Lead and Manganese) in some commonly consumed herbs (Mint Leaves, Bitter Leaves, Lemon Grass and Moringa Leaves) in Jos North and Jos South L.G.A. of Plateau state using AAS and compare the result of the heavy metals analysis with WHO Standard limits for heavy metals in plants.
