Stress, drugs and rock and roll: revealing a time line of abuse through toxicological hair analysis

Chemicals hidden in our hair reveal a remarkable amount of information about our lifestyles.  Our drinking and smoking habits, drug abuse or just how stressful our daily lives are is all recorded in our hair through a series of biochemical processes in the body.  This talk will review the processes of toxicological hair analysis as used in criminal casework, child custody disputes, and healthcare through review of a series of real life case studies.
