  • BACKGROUND Copper is an essential nutrient for humans. Recently, a limit of 31.48 micromol/l (2 mg/l) was proposed by the World Health Organization as the provisional guideline value for copper content of drinking water. The objective of the study was to determine the tolerance of chronic exposure to drinking water with low or high copper content in infants. METHODS Healthy infants (n = 128) were randomly assigned to receive drinking water with less than 1.57 micromol/l (<0.1 mg/l) (n = 48… CONTINUE READING
