Trace Metal Analysis in Clinical Chemistry
Trace metals are attracting considerable attention in the biological sciences. Metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic are toxic if absorbed in moderate amounts, and they may even be deleterious to health at the background levels found in relatively polluted urban and industrial areas. Other metals such as iron, chromium and zinc are essential nutrients, and there is evidence that a significant proportion of the U.S. population is ingesting less than optimum amounts of these metals.
