Abstract Share this page

The results of effect of daily consumption of leachate-contaminated groundwater for 65days on rats' Packed Cell Volume (PCV), Haemoglobin (Hb), White Blood Cell (WBC), Red Blood Cell (RBC), neutrophil and platelet are presented. The PCV (%) of rats treated with leachate was found to be 26±4 while that of animals treated with control tap water was 40±2. Hb (g/dl) of control rats was observed to be 14.3±0.3 while that of leachate treated rats was 10.9±0.3. The experimental results indicated that consumption of leachate-contaminated groundwater may lead to ill health particularly anaemia.
