24 CHAPTER 1 TRACE ELEMENT CONTAMINATED LANDS IN UKRAINE 6 ­CONCLUSIONS The high concentration of heavy metal is harmful to human health through contaminated agro-production. The most heavy metals accumulate in soil after long-time addition. This chapter raised the issue of heavy metal pollution in the world and more specifically in Ukraine. The most dangerous aspect of this p­ ollution is high levels of lead and nickel in soils of Ukraine territory. The proposed method for cleanup of polluted soils has been using heavy metal-tolerant plant species that are able to hyperaccumulate metals in plant roots and shoots.
