Trace elements in tissues from New Zealanders: a compilation of published data.


The information currently available on the levels of trace elements in New Zealand autopsy material is reviewed. Concentrations of copper, manganese, zinc, selenium and cadmium have been reported in a variety of tissues from fetuses, infants and adults, nickel and lead in some fetal tissues and adult liver, and arsenic, bismuth, cobalt, mercury, silver and thallium in adult livers. Except for Se levels, which are markedly lower, and Cu levels which are at the lower end of the range for adults, levels of trace elements are generally similar to those reported from other countries.
