The average value of total mercury (THg) in scalp hair of male residents in Seoul city was 1.7+/-0.18 ppm (mean+/-S.E.) and that of methylmercury (MeHg), 1.0+/-0.12 ppm (58.8% THg). In female, level of THg was 1.1+/-0.15 ppm and MeHg was 0.5+/-0.14 ppm (45.5%). Mercury was found more in the scalp hair of male than female (P<0.01). THg/MeHg increased with age of subjects in male (P<0.01), but not female. Coefficients of correlation (r) between THg and MeHg contents in scalp hair of male was +0… CONTINUE READING
