RE: uranium in hair

I recently got a call from a woman who's daughter was having some health 
problems and one of the tests they had done was a hair sample for all 
contaminants.  One of the results was elevated Uranium.  I referred her to 
Dr. Ron Kathryn (apologies for misspelled names) at Washington State.

Radsafers -- does anyone have an accepted value for uranium in hair?
How about uranium in hair colorants?
We received some information from a person who lives near a nuclear
plant and believes he has been
exposed to uranium.  The individual had hair samples analyzed from a
"laboratory" in Chicago that found "elevated uranium"
in the hair.
