Abstract
Atomic absorption spectrophotometric determination of cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, and zinc concentrations in 1500 samples of human hair collected from male and female populations of thirteen communities throughout the United States. Comparison of geometric means of the concentrations indicates a small but probably biologically significant difference between men and women only for copper. Statistical analysis of the data and other details are to be presented elsewhere.
