Abstract
Atomic absorption spectrophotometric determination of the zinc and copper content of human hair in subjects ages 1 to 80 years to determine whether hair can be used effectively to assess the metabolic status of individuals in differeing environmental situations with respect to essential metals and toxic metals. The hair levels of the metals are found to be directly related to the age of the subjects, in two groups over and under 12 years, with an increase in childhood and a decrease after maturity. The sexes may differ in respective need and use of copper.
