Andy Allen asked the Naked Scientists: Hi Chris, newbielink:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/podcasts/ [nonactive]. I live in Chicago, Illinois, near a coal-burning power plant which spews forth a certain amount of mercury. I have heard that vegetables can absorb lead from polluted soil. Is the same true for mercury? If so, is there a way I can do a reasonably accurate yet inexpensive mercury test on my tomatoes?Thanks,Andy AllenWhat do you think?
