The study focused on 210Po and 210Pb activity concentrations determination in human hair as well as investigation its utility as an easy and safe indicator of metal elicitation for natural 210Po and 210Pb, and finding differences in their concentrations in hair considering the age, gender, hair color or diet of people who donated the samples. Statistically analyzed results showed significant differences within age, hair color, and cigarette smoking groups. Our results showed that human hair could not be unambiguously used as 210Po and 210Pb body burden indicators.
