Lead in Lettuce
Division:Life Sciences / None
Region:South Fraser
City:Surrey, BC
School:Kwantlen Park Secondary
Abstract:I tested lettuce samples for lead. I thought organic lettuce would have less lead than non-organic. I froze and crushed my lettuce samples, placed them in vials, added acid and spun them. I extracted the supernatant, used a reagent and tested the fluid spectrophotometrically. Lead was present in most samples at low levels, but the levels of organic and non-organic lettuce were practically the same.
