Communities from ten states in the United States and two cities in Mexico were studied. The communities were chosen for their proximity to primary non-ferrous smelter industries. Three lead and five zinc smelter areas were sampled for blood, hair, and dust. Urine, blood, hair, and dust were collected from fourteen copper smelter sites and four control cities. Samples were analyzed for arsenic, lead, cadmium, copper and zinc.
