About Zinc

Zinc occurs widely in nature, and is another metal essential in trace quantities for good health. Exposure to elevated levels is more likely through occupational exposure in industry such as mining and smelting and processing of metal ores. Insufficient zinc intake has a detrimental effect on growth, and immune and reproductive system development. Adverse health effects generally only occur where the exposure is high.

The guideline for Zinc is 120µg/m³ (24hr avg).

Zinc is measured in micrograms per cubic metre.
