I have heard that coffee plants naturally up-concentrate cadmium to act as an insecticide, or as a defense strategy to make themselves inhospitable to insects. Is this true? There are many reports that coffee is a common source of cadmium. That coffee plants are 'tolerant' to cadmium. Is this because, like fish methylating Mercury to protect themselves from its (mercury's) toxicity, coffee is deliberately utilizing cadmium's toxic nature to protect itself?
