Background

A description of the experience

Dr. Duke's  Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Databases

Chemicals and their Biological Activities in: Rosa canina L. (Rosaceae) -- Dog Rose, Dogbrier, Rose

According to Dr Duke, the sample used for the analysis in the database had the following in them

ALUMINUM Fruit 5 - 12 ppm

LEAD Fruit 0.16 - 0.4 ppm

CADMIUM Fruit 0.03 - 0.075 ppm

MERCURY Fruit:

NICKEL Fruit 0.4 - 1 ppm

NITROGEN Fruit 3,600 - 9,000 ppm

TIN Fruit 22 ppm;

This means that rosehips are quite powerful chelating agents able to take up a number of poisons from the soil.  In effect, the dog rose has the capability of being a bioremedial plant and when grown in pollution free soil may have a chelating action on us.  In addition, the following activity was reported

Antidote (Aluminum);
Antidote (Cadmium);
Antidote (Lead);
Antidote (Paraquat);
Antidote (Mercury);
