Nutrient toxicity condition is also described as nutrient deficiency. Intake of nutrients obtained in food found in plants and animals for proper growth, metabolism and repair is known as nutrition. Providing more or excess fertilizers to the nutrient uptake may leads to nutritional toxicity. The deficiency of nutrient in plants cause to Stunted growth (decreased growth), Chlorosis (lack of chlorophyll), Interveinal chlorosis (yet veins remain green), Necrosis (death of plant tissue), Burning (severe localized yellowing, scorched appearance), Immobile nutrient (stops the flow of nutrients from one body parts to another) and Mottling (spotted, irregular patterns on leaves). By using different elements like calcium, iron, manganese, potassium, magnesium, molybdenum, copper, sulfur and zinc as fertilizers can also changes the pH fluctuations in the plants and leads to more toxicity. In this cases, the nutritional values changes and mostly leads to nutritional toxicity and even effects the regular diets in living organisms. So, uses of excess fertilizers are very harmful.
Edelweiss Journal of Food Science and Technology publishes articles related to food science and technology and cover various topics such as nutrition, health, dietetics, clinical nutrition and many more. Articles related to nutritional toxicity can be research, review or Case reports. All of these types of manuscripts are welcomed to publish in the Edelweiss Journal of Food Science and Technology. This Journal is running by Edelweiss publications with eminent editors for peer review process.
