Abstract

The present study aimed to use some plants extracts, such as celery and garlic in reducing the toxicity
of dosed lead in white mice. The study included several experiments: the first included the progressive
concentrations of lead in addition to control group (distilled water). The second and the third group were
given only three progressive concentrations of plants, in addition to the control group which included a
concentration of 6 mg/kg lead nitrate with DW. The results of statistical analysis at the p-value <0.05 showed
a strong effect of the extracts used to reduce the toxicity of lead in male mice. Hence we can use the plants in
the current study to improve the fertility of living organism, including humans because of their antioxidants.
