All natural chemical compounds or auxiliaries contain admixtures, but sometimes the amount is so great that it becomes a difficult problem to distinguish whether the element is an integral part of the same mineral or another element. Contaminated by sources such as pollution. Elements that are present in a mineral in an amount of 0.1%.
After analysis, the word “trace” is used and many elements are called “trace elements”, while many “suspicious” elements have also been found to exist. About which the least information is available, because they are neither found to exist anymore on Earth nor come from any significant industrial use.
For this reason, it is called “Rare Element”. For example, “Lan Thanum”. Additions have effects, for example mercury, which is a toxic metal and is present in small amounts in many rocks. About 0.2 parts per million are “granite” rocks, and less than half of that is found on average in all crystal rocks. Some of the mercury is slowly leached from rock bodies and incorporated into water through natural chemical weathering.
Most natural water contains only a few parts per billion of mercury, which is non-lethal. Some of the naturally occurring “mercury” in water is naturally converted into the organic form “methylmercury” in water, which is fatal to swimmers. According to medical data, the toxicity of chronic mercury has reached highs (several parts per million), with most being “methylmercury.”
At this stage mercury affects the nervous system very covertly, the effects of which are over time. Cavities and strength of teeth are related to the presence of “fluorine” in water, a fact that is now well known. Fluorine is present in a certain percentage as a “suspicious” element, so it is useful in reducing dental caries. In those geographic areas where teeth are healthy, the water contains calcium, aluminum, etc. along with fluorine.
Many types of diseases occur in low fluorine areas, eg goiter, Georgia is suffering from this type of problem. This is the reason why iodine is added to the salt in this country to control this disease. Iodine is normally found in seawater. Iodine is low in mountainous and glacial regions because this element is of uncertain nature. For this reason, its distribution has also been found to be abnormal.
“Selenium” (Selenium) element high and low amount is harmful to animal life. Its high inclusion in animal feed has led to several cases of muscular dystrophy, the control of which is being researched, particularly in Georgia, because plants such as locoweed (Locoweed) concentrates this element in their body in large quantities which are used in cattle feed which have toxic effects on the body and health.
On the other hand, in Florida, some diseases have been found in cattle and children, which are related to iron and copper deficiency. If “Cobalt” and “Molybdenum” (Molybdenum) are included in the diet immediately, they are effective in preventing copper restriction and removing its deficiency. Analysis in the Western United States has revealed that trace amounts of the element “Vanidium” have also been found in the water as a suspected element, particularly in contaminated water from industrial areas.
According to biological surveys, the “suspicious elements” in life include nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen in cells and tissues. In general, these elements are helpful in keeping the enzyme (which keeps the digestive system healthy) flowing regularly. Trace elements suspected to carry out this process include calcium, magnesium and iron. The increase or decrease in the amount of all these elements creates many changes in the body which sometimes appear in the form of tumor or any other disease.
For this reason, lithium is sometimes used as a treatment for mental disorders. In those areas where these elements are present in the water and changes are felt in any part of the body, immediate consultation with medical experts is necessary, so that the disease can be controlled. There are also some trace elements that accumulate in the body with age.
For this reason, such elements have been named as “elements of age” among which Arsenic, Nickel and Barium are noteworthy. The method of analysis used to identify these elements is called “Emission Spectrography”. It is a device that vaporizes minerals by means of a very hot electric arc, then analyzes the light emitted by the burning material.
