Abstract: Rice samples are collected from different villages affected with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Uddanam area of Srikakulam District, Andhra Pradesh, India. These samples are analyzed using Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF). The trace elements P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, Se are identified and compared with NIST-1515 (apple leaf). The impact of each element on human physiology and CKD is analysed.

Keywords: Rice, CKD, EDXRF, Trace elements
