Comparing the Metal Concentration in the Hair of Cancer Patients and Healthy People Living in the Malwa Region of Punjab, India
Our newest study is now published. We found high concentrations of several potentially toxic elements in hair samples of cancer patients and healthy people living in the same household in the Malwa region of Punjab. Compared to standard reference ranges, the metals in excess in both the control and patient groups were aluminum (Al), barium (Ba), manganese (Mn), strontium (Sr) and uranium (U). The most significant findings were high lead (Pb), U and Ba concentrations.
