Atomic composition balance is a compound of chemical elements wrapped in human body and need to be checked periodically for healthy rhythm. 60 chemical elements are found in Human body; some of them are inbuilt and necessary for life – need to be balanced with life style correction and most are environmental, harbored by human body as per their exposure to the element by air, skin, food and water contamination – need to be treated when required. Some of them are unknown and in research stage.
Almost 99% of the mass of the human body is made up of six elements: Oxygen, Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Calcium, and Phosphorus and about 0.85% is composed of another elements: Potassium, Sulfur, Sodium, Chlorine, Magnesium, Iodine, Iron and rest are Fluorine, Zinc, Copper, Selenium, Chromium, Manganese, Molybdenum & Cobalt.
Body composition also be analyzed in terms of molecular type; water, protein, connective tissue, fates (lipid), apatite (in bones), carbohydrates (glycogen and glucose) and DNA.
Blood : Blood consist of cellular material, water, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, hormones, vitamins, electrolytes, dissolved gases and cellular wastes. Each red blood cell is about 1/3 hemoglobin by volume. Plasma is about 92% water, with plasma proteins as the most abundant solutes. The main plasma protein groups are albumins, globulins and fibrinogens. The primary blood gases are oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
Urine : Human urine consists primarily of water with organic solutes including urea, creatinine, uric acid and trace amounts of enzymes, carbohydrates, hormones, fatty acids, pigments and musings and inorganic ions such as sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, calcium, ammonium, sulfates and phosphates.
|Element||weight||Percentage||Roll & Presence|
|Oxygen||43 kg||65%||Predominantly found in water, which makes up about 65 percent of the body by weight. It's practically impossible to imagine life without water.
Presence in all liquids and tissues, bones, protein
|Carbon||16 kg||18%||Its central role is due to the fact that it has four bonding sites that allow for the building of long, complex chains of molecules. Moreover, carbon bonds can be formed and broken with a modest amount of energy, allowing for the dynamic organic chemistry that goes on in our cells
|Hydrogen||7 kg||10%||Hydrogen is present in all organic compounds. A form of water in which both hydrogen atoms are replaced by deuterium is called "heavy water" and is toxic to mammals. Some bacteria are known to metabolize molecular hydrogen.
Presence in all liquids and tissues, bones, protein
|Nitrogen||1.8 kg||3%||Found in many organic molecules, including the amino acids that make up proteins, and the nucleic acids that make up DNA.
Presence in all liquids and tissues, proteins
|Calcium||1.0 kg||1.5%||Most common mineral in the human body - nearly all of it found in bones and teeth. Ironically, calcium's most important role is in bodily functions, such as muscle contraction and protein regulation. In fact, the body will actually pull calcium from bones (causing problems like osteoporosis) if there's not enough of the element in a person's diet.
Presence in lungs, kidney, liver, thyroid, brain, muscles, heart, bones present
|Phosphorus||780 g||1%||Found predominantly in bone but also in the molecule ATP, which provides energy in cells for driving chemical reactions.
Presence in urine & bones
|Potassium||140 g||0.25%||An important electrolyte (meaning it carries a charge in solution). It helps regulate the heartbeat and is vital for electrical signaling in nerves.
Presence in enzymes
|Sulfur||140 g||0.25%||Found in two amino acids that are important for giving proteins their shape.
Presence in proteins
|Sodium||100 g||0.25%||Electrolyte that is vital for electrical signaling in nerves. It also regulates the amount of water in the body.
Presence in all liquids and tissues (in terms of salt)
|Chlorine||95 g||0.15%||Usually found in the body as a negative ion, called chloride. This electrolyte is important for maintaining a normal balance of fluids
Presence in body liquid

When a chemical is released from a large area, such as an industrial plant or from container, such as a drum or bottle, it enters the environment as a chemical emission. This emission, which is also called a release, does not always lead to exposure. You can be exposed to a chemical only when you come into contact with the chemical. You may be exposed to it in the environment by breathing, eating or drinking substances containing the chemical or from skin contact with it. If you are exposed to a hazardous substance such as silver, several factors will determine whether harmful health effects will occur and what the type and severity of those health effects will be. These factors include the dose (how much), the duration (how long), the route or pathway by which you are exposed (breathing, eating, drinking or skin contact), the other chemicals to.
