Assessment of aluminium in human deciduous teeth

Eur J Epidemiol. 2000 Mar;16(3):231-3. doi: 10.1023/a:1007676432537.


The possible role of environmental aluminium exposure in the pathogenesis of various diseases has highlighted the need for methods by which the long-term exposure to aluminium can be assessed. Therefore, we have further developed a method to determine aluminium in human deciduous teeth and applied this method for studying populations in Sweden, Crete and Iceland.
