Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a gynaecological disease that has multiple connections with many diseases. It has been estimated that myocardial infarction is more likely in patients with PCOS. The effect of serum calcium and magnesium on the risk of heart diseases is not yet established. In this work, the lipid profile (total cholesterol TC, triglycerides TG, and very low-density lipoprotein VLDL, and high density lipoprotein HDL-C), serum magnesium, and calcium have been estimated in PCOS patients in comparing with control group. Different atherogenic ratios ((TC/HDL-C, LDL-C/HDL-C, TG/HDL-C, and Log (TG/HDL-C)) were calculated to obtain the best indicative ratios for the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The results showed that there is a significant increase (p<0.05) in TC, TG, and VLDL in PCOS patients as compared with control group. While HDL and serum calcium is decreased significantly (p<0.05) in patients group in comparing with control group. No significant change in serum magnesium and Ca/Mg ratio between both groups. There is no correlation (-0.50

In this research, the bentonite clay was utilized for the removal of mercury ion from aqueous solutions. Adsorption experiments were conducted under various conditions where the batch method was used to determine the best adsorption ratio and the adsorption capacity for the concentration used of Hg(II) ion between (100-10 mg/L), the results show that the best concentration was (10 mg/L) where the adsorption ratio was 88.7 and the adsorption capacity was 0.444 mg/g. The adsorbent dose was 20 g/L, and the shaking time found that it equal to 140 min and the best pH value between (5-8). The effect of temperature and thermodynamic functions wear also studied, the adsorption capacity was increased with increased the temperature and the reaction was endothermic. The equilibrium isotherm data was analyzed using the Langmuir equation, where found qm and b are equal to 3.367 mg/g and 0.134 respectively. The rate constant k2 for the adsorption of Hg(II) ion is equal to 0.1067 g/mg.min
