Abstract

Toxic element pollution is an ecological concern in the regions where mining, industry and agriculture are developing. Anthropogenic impact on the environment results in the reduction of the population of honey bees over the world with varying degrees of morbidity and mortality. Bees exposed to contaminants produce polluted products through various sources, including foraging activities on contaminated plants.  Therefore, monitoring of honey bee products in terms of toxic elements is very important for food safety  and for preventing potential  future ecological problems. The data presented in this review are useful for bee health protection and improving the quality and safety of honey production chain.
