Biomagnification is aman-induced process.
Biomagnification occurs withnon-degradable chemicals/substances/pollutants only.
For example Pesticides, anti-knocking agents used in internal combustion engines, paints, artificial perfumes etc.
Biomagnification doesn’t occur with degradable chemicals/substances for example sugar, tea, cheese, milk etc. because they can be digested by (some) living organisms.
