Abstract

Experimental and literature values for hair calcium levels were evaluated to identify their physiological significance. The distribution of values obtained from different populations indicates that the calcium content of scalp hair reflects calcium metabolism in the body. Correlations between the hair calcium concentrations from different anatomical sites support this indication.
