Brassica juncea (L.) and Myristica fragrans are common plants found in India where the concentration of heavy metals in water and soil is observed more frequently and in sufficient amounts to cause bad effects to the living entity. In plants various kinds of bad effects such as dwarfness, yellowish leaves, dead leaves, brownish and dead stem. These are kinds of symptoms that one can observe in plants suffering from the bad effects of heavy metal absorption. At a specific time, they should be identified and treated for the same otherwise this may cause an increase in dead material in the plant, day by day. This review summarizes the bad effects of heavy metals in plants like these two.
