Are the heavy metals in Fertilisers dangerous?

Submitted: 02:33PM, 20 Oct 2009
Answer: Many of the nutrients in mineral fertilisers are originally derived from natural mined sources. These contain a small background level of heavy metals, just like garden soil. It’s important to note, however, that common foods also contain heavy metals. For example chocolate contains cadmium and seafood contains mercury.These foods will most likely provide more heavy metals in the diet than home garden fertilisers.
