Metal Questions

Okay so, I work at a Blacksmith forge and started a Twitter "Metal Facts" page. So I have to come up with metal facts that are kindda cool. While watching History Channel, which isn't always accurate... okay lets be honest, is NEVER 100% accurate, they stated the following:

More steel in the US is used to make bottle caps than to manufacture automobile bodies.

I tried goggling this to see if it were true with no luck. So any thoughts?

My SECOND question, while looking for an answer to the first, I found THIS fact:

Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair

It seems like it wouldn't be right, but on this page of "weird facts" the majority of the ones I know are all true, and the few I looked up pose to be true... so I'm wondering about it...
