Atomic-Absorption Spectrophotometry in Mineral and Trace-Element Studies in Man
Analyses of calcium, magnesium, and zinc in the diet and in urine and stool have been performed with the atomic-absorption spectrophotometer. Complete metabolic balance studies of calcium, magnesium, and zinc were performed under constant metabolic conditions in man during different intake levels of these elements. These studies have led to a better understanding of the interrelationship of minerals and trace elements in man.
