    Article - En anglais

    In follow-up study concentrations of cadmium, copper, lead and zinc (measured by atomic absorption spectrometry) in scalp hair and toenail clippings of 47 children (5-9 years) were compared with previous values (2 years earlier).

    Family members were also monitored.

    Twenty-five of the children selected have had either high hair values of Cd, Cu, Pb or low hair Zn concentrations os combinations of these (group A) in the first study.

    Control group comprised 22 children (B).

    At the follow-up study, there were no more differences between group A and B.
