Abstract

It is well – known the fact that the honey is a very important product, obtained from the bees. In literature there are many publications that highlight the high level of lead contamination of the vegetation located in the close proximity of roads with intense car traffic, which sometimes reach several tens of mg/kg of product.
The main sources of the honey`s contamination are the residuum resulted from non – ferrous industry, but also from the industry that uses or transforms lead and its derivatives.
But the widest contamination is the result of the utilization of auto vehicles.
In order to reduce the detonating effect into the explosion engine and to increase the efficiency of the combustible, it is used to add lead tetraethyl to gas. After such a "useful" action, this chemical compound of lead and exhaust gases are simultaneously eliminated, contaminating the entire area and, inherently, the honey.
