Human hair can be used effectively for biological monitoring of the highest priority toxic trace metals. The aim of this study was the evaluation of the heavy metals contents in the hair and the urine collected from children (15 –18 years old) living in the Iassy area, from Romania. Trace elements concentrations were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrophotometry, using a Carl Zeiss Jena, Model AAS-1N, with flame air-acethylene. In all analysed samples these metals were found. Generally, a wide variation between individual samples was observed. Determinations of these pollutants in human body (hair, urine) are important in environmental monitoring for the prevention, control and reduction of pollution as well as for occupational health and epidemiological studies.
