Some chemicals that are of concern are:

-Organic solvents: aliphatic, aromatic, cyclic, and halogenated hydrocarbons, alcohols, ethers, esters, ketones, and glycols.

-Heavy metals: arsenic, thallium, lead, mercury, gold.

-Some commercially available herbal medicines may be a source of excessive levels of heavy metals.
