Accurate measurements of specific metals in various biological systems is extremely important. These metals can be classified into several groups: the high level major electrolytes (Na, K, Ca, Mg), which are crucial to normal primary physiological processes like cellular activity and metabolism; the minor minerals (Fe, Mn, Zn, Co, Cu), which are present in lower levels to act as metabolic agents and enzyme catalysts; and the trace heavy metals, or toxics, that should not be present in a healthy organism (Ag, Al, As, Se, Pb, Cr, Cd, Hg, Ni, TI, Sr, Ba and V). These last elements are either known to be detrimental to the body, or have a currently unknown activity that is purported to be harmful.
