Abstract

In recent year a considerable attention has been increased for heavy metal contamination in the environment due to persistent and toxic in the ecosystem. Chromium element is one of the accumulative metals with high toxic effect, it is present in two oxidant states 2 and 6. Hexavalant chromium is the most toxic and because it is widely used in various industrial uses, It is produced as product of human activity like chrome oxidizing plant which is extracted from mines and from burins rock and fluid fuel, wood and papers. These manipulation activities will lead to increase concentration of chromium in the environment and so lead to mor human being and other living organisms. So, the aim of this study is to determine the effect of potassium dichromate on some levels of hormones such as (FSH, and testosterone) and to assessment of the role of vitamin C as protective agent, Eva the effects of heavy metal (Potassium dichromate), on the somniferous tubules, prostate and seminal vesicle sex gland in the male rats, and To detect and emphasize the protective role of Vitamin C.Via notice it's ability for reduction of the del effects of this heavy metal (potassium dichromate).

Keywords: potassium dichromate, ascorbic acid
