Phytoremediation is the direct use of living plants for in situ removal, containment, degradation, or rendering harmless contaminants in soil.  Plants do this by taking up the materials in the soil by absorbing them through the root system. 

The plant which Russian agronomists used was the Indian mustard plant (Brassica juncea) which has a prodigious absorption capacity.  The Indian mustard plant has been nicknamed “nature’s magnet” and has a unique ability to absorb metals and minerals from the soil it grows in.

Whereas the Russians used it to remove dangerous levels of lead and uranium, scientists are now using the Indian mustard plant to help boost our intake of metals and minerals often lacking in our Western diet.  Continue reading Vitamins, Minerals, Radioactive Metals and the Indian Mustard Plant
