Lead and Copper were determined in Mainpuri Tobacco (Kapoori) samples collected from different stations of Mainpuri district of U.P. The concentrations of metals were determined by using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The resulting levels of the metals were compared to the daily consumption of the tobacco product and also compared to the provisional tolerable intake limits determined by the FAO/WHO. The reliability of data was assured by analysing standard reference materials.
