Arsenic and cadmium toxicity has demonstrated to be a crucial problem and there are many health issues interconnected with each other. The toxicity of these metals has no biological role even though remain present in some or the other form, hazardous for the human health and its proper functioning. As a result, from the very beginning, the researchers are trying to overcome the serious effects occurred by the heavy metals. The different procedures and methods are followed for minimizing the negative effects. The study was conducted to predict the probable effects and theirs targeted proteins in human body by recently developed advanced bioinformatics tools and subsequently found 10 proteins are interacted with arsenic and cadmium for each. However, these 10 proteins are independently associated with other 97 and 100 proteins. Finally, 25 common proteins have been identified which are affected by these two heavy metals. Our data mining search revealed that all of these 25 proteins are associated with the causing of cancer in human body.
