    With all the constant spraying and chems put out to assit in the fight of crops being destroyed by insects and contamination, why wouldnt a plant develop this? Evolution for survival, just like animals do, evolve, and even animals develop certain traits/mechanisms that are not really explained why they need them.

    Everyone keep in mind that these are metal ions that have accumulated - not small pieces of metal. Big difference.
