The nervous system is very sensitive to all forms of mercury and exposure to high levels can permanently damage the brain, kidneys and developing fetuses. Effects on brain functioning may result in irritability, shyness, tremors, changes in vision or hearing and memory problems (Ja¨rup 2003; Lenntech 2004). Inorganic arsenic is acutely toxic, carcinogenic and intake of large quantities leads to gastrointestinal complexities, severe disturbances of the cardiovascular and central nervous systems, and eventually death.
Every year, an estimated 160,000 factories dump between 41,000 and 57,000 tons of toxic organic chemicals and 68,000 tons of toxic metals into coastal waters (UNEP and UN-HABITAT 2005). Recently, Sany et al. (2013) investigated temporal and spatial distribution of heavy metals in sediments of Port Klang (Malaysia) and observed significantly higher concentrations of As, Cd, Hg and Pb than that of background values at which these metals are considered hazardous to marine organisms and health. , boat docking and corrosion of ships) and agricultural activities such as application of organic insecticides (leadarsenate), pesticides, fertilizers.
