Effects of a diet low in copper on copper-status indicators in postmenopausal women.
To study the effects of low copper intake in older individuals, 12 postmenopausal women, aged 63.1 +/- 8.8 y, were fed a diet containing 9 micromol (0.57 mg) Cu/d for 105 d, followed by aExpand

Homeostatic control of zinc metabolism in men: zinc excretion and balance in men fed diets low in zinc.
Zinc metabolism was studied in 11 men. The study began with 28-d equilibration when dietary zinc was 159 mumol/d (X), followed by 35-d periods when the diet contained 21.9 (I), 37.5 (II), 51.6 (III),Expand

Effects of age and sex on copper absorption, biological half-life, and status in humans.
Healthy, free-living men and women aged 20-83 y (n = 127) were studied to determine the effects of age and sex on copper absorption, biological half-life (BH), and status. Copper absorption wasExpand
