    no… only in large amounts anyone who suffers from headaches, fatigue, insomnia,depression,skin rashes, spaciness or detachment, learning disorders or premenstrual syndrome? These can be symptoms of a copper imbalance. Copper is found in certain foods in greater quantity such as meats, eggs, poultry, nuts, seeds and grains. Other foods are quite low in copper such as fruits, in particular. Others that tend to be low are vegetables and some nuts and grains.Refined food diets are low in copper in many cases.

    Small amounts of copper are beneficial to ones health, and traces of it can be found in different foods, drinking water, and even cook ware.  However, exposure from industrial fumes can cause what is known as metal fever, a condition with flu-like symptoms that can pass after a few days.  Long term exposure can lead to headaches and nausea, liver and kidney damage, and eventually death.
