A silver metallic element that exists as a liquid at room temperature. It has the atomic symbol Hg (from hydrargyrum, liquid silver), atomic number 80, and atomic weight 200.59. Mercury is used in many industrial applications and its salts have been employed therapeutically as purgatives, antisyphilitics, disinfectants, and astringents. It can be absorbed through the skin and mucous membranes which leads to MERCURY POISONING. Because of its toxicity, the clinical use of mercury and mercurials is diminishing.
Inorganic compounds that contain mercury as an integral part of the molecule.
Neurologic disorders associated with exposure to inorganic and organic forms of MERCURY. Acute intoxication may be associated with gastrointestinal disturbances, mental status changes, and PARAPARESIS. Chronic exposure to inorganic mercury usually occurs in industrial workers, and manifests as mental confusion, prominent behavioral changes (including psychosis), DYSKINESIAS, and NEURITIS. Alkyl mercury poisoning may occur through ingestion of contaminated seafood or grain, and its characteristic features include POLYNEUROPATHY; ATAXIA; vision loss; NYSTAGMUS, PATHOLOGIC; and DEAFNESS.

Mercury and mink. I. The use of mercury contaminated fish as a food for ranch mink. (1/1685)

Adult female and juvenile ranch mink were fed rations containing 50 and 75% of fish containing 0.44 ppm total mercury over a 145 day period. There was no clinical or pathological evidence of intoxication in these animals and mercury concentrations in tissue appeared to be at a level below that associated with toxicity.  (+info)

Mercury and Mink. II. Experimental methyl mercury intoxication. (2/1685)

Adult female mink were fed rations containing 1.1, 1.8, 4.8, 8.3 and 15.0 ppm mercury as methyl mercury chloride over a 93 day period. Histopathological evidence of injury was present in all groups. Mink fed rations containing 1.8 to 15.0 ppm mercury developed clinical intoxication within the experimental period. The rapidity of onset of clinical intoxication was directly related to the mercury content of the ration. Mercury concentration in tissue of mink which died were similar, despite differences in mercury content of the diets and time of death. The average mercury concentration in the brain of mink which died was 11.9 ppm. The lesions of methyl mercury poisoning are described and criteria for diagnosis are discussed.  (+info)

Lead and mercury residues in kidney and liver of Canadian slaughter animals. (3/1685)

Liver and kidney samples were collected from Canadian slaughter animals during the winter of 1973-1974. A total of 256 samples were analyzed for lead. Mean lead levels of 1.02 ppm in poultry liver, 1.04 ppm in bovine liver, 1.02 ppm in bovine kidney, 0.73 ppm in pork liver and 0.85 ppm in pork kidney were found. A total of 265 samples were analyzed for mercury. Mean mercury levels of 0.003 ppm in poultry liver, 0.007 ppm in bovine liver, 0.008 ppm in bovine kidney, 0.001 ppm in pork liver and 0.013 ppm in pork kidney were found. All levels detected were below the Canadian official tolerance of 2 ppm for lead and administrative tolerance of 0.5 ppm for mercury.  (+info)

Acute renal failure caused by nephrotoxins. (4/1685)

Renal micropuncture studies have greatly changed our views on the pathophysiology of acute renal failure caused by nephrotoxins. Formerly, this type of renal insufficiency was attributed to a direct effect of the nephrotoxins on tubule epithelial permeability. According to that theory, glomerular filtration was not greatly diminished, the filtrate formed being absorbed almost quantitatively and nonselectively across damaged tubule epithelium. Studies in a wide variety of rat models have now shown glomerular filtration to be reduced to a level which will inevitably cause renal failure in and of itself. Passive backflow of filtrate across tubular epithelium is either of minor degree or nonexistent even in models where frank tubular necrosis has occurred. This failure of filtration cannot be attributed to tubular obstruction since proximal tubule pressure is distinctly subnormal in most models studied. Instead, filtration failure appears best attributed to intrarenal hemodynamic alterations. While certain facts tend to incriminate the renin-angiotensin system as the cause of the hemodynamic aberrations, others argue to the contrary. The issue is underactive investigation.  (+info)

Mercury toxicity due to the smelting of placer gold recovered by mercury amalgam. (5/1685)

A 19-year-old man developed tremor in both hands and fatigue after starting work at a placer gold mine where he was exposed to mercury-gold amalgam. Examination revealed an intention tremor, dysdiadochokinesis and mild rigidity. The 24-h urinary mercury concentration reached a peak of 715 nmol/l (143 ug/l) shortly before the clinical examination, after which he was removed from working in the gold room [Mercury No. Adverse Effect Level: 250 nmol/l (50 ug/l)]. On review 7 weeks later his tremor had almost resolved and the dysdiadochokinesis and rigidity had gone. The 24-h urinary mercury concentration had fallen to 160 nmol/l (32 ug/l). The principal exposure to mercury was considered to be the smelting of retorted gold with previously unrecognized residual mercury in it. The peak air concentration of mercury vapour during gold smelting was 0.533 mg/m3 (Mercury Vapour ACGIH TLV: 0.05 mg/m3 TWA). Several engineering and procedural controls were instituted. This episode occurred at another mine site, unrelated to Mount Isa Mines Limited.  (+info)

Regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase expression in beta cells by environmental factors: heavy metals. (6/1685)

The expression of inducible NO synthase (iNOS) in pancreatic islet beta cells modulates endocrine cell functions and, at very high levels of NO production causes beta-cell death. We tested the hypothesis that environmental factors such as heavy-metal salts modulate iNOS expression in beta cells. A rat beta-cell line (insulinoma RINm5F) was cultured in the presence of low-dose interleukin (IL)-1beta for suboptimal induction of iNOS. PbCl2 (0. 1-10 microM) dose-dependently increased NO (measured as nitrite) formation (P<0.001). In contrast, HgCl2 suppressed nitrite production (0.1-10 microM, P<0.05). Measurements of iNOS activity by determining citrulline levels confirmed the potentiating effect of PbCl2 (P<0.05). There was a narrow time window of heavy-metal actions, ranging from -24 h (Hg2+) or -3 h (Pb2+) to +2 h, relative to the addition of IL-1beta. By semi-quantitative reverse transcriptase-PCR, enhanced levels of iNOS mRNA were found in the presence of Pb2+ (P<0.05) and decreased levels in the presence of Hg2+. The amount of iNOS protein as determined by Western blotting was increased in the presence of Pb2+. We conclude that Pb2+ upregulates and Hg2+ suppresses iNOS gene expression at the level of transcription, probably by acting on the signalling pathway. These observations may have important implications for understanding pathological effects of environmental factors on endocrine organ functions.  (+info)

Regeneration of renal proximal tubules after mercuric chloride injury is accompanied by increased binding of aminoacyl-transfer ribonucleic acid. (7/1685)

Homogenates of rat kidney cortex obtained 1,3 or 14 days after a single injection of HgCl2 were used to prepare the post-microsomal pH5 supernatant fraction. The activity of this fraction for peptide synthesis from [14C]phenylalanyl-tRNA was significantly increased at 1 and 3 days, at which time the proximal tubules are regenerating [Cuppage & Tate (1967) Am. J. Pathol. 51, 405-429]. This increased activity could not be attributed to a decreased inhibitory activity, but was due to an increased aminoacyl-tRNA binding, i.e. elongation-factor-1 activity, in the supernatant fraction.  (+info)

Biotransformation of methylmercury in vitro. (8/1685)

Inorganic mercury formation from methylmercury by the mouse liver and kidney was studied in vitro. With chopped liver or kidney, inorganic mercury was formed from added methylmercury, but when the tissue was homogenized, the activity was diminished. Equimolar addition of selenium had no effect on the reaction.  (+info)

Our main finding was that high mercury content in hair is significantly associated with an increased risk of acute coronary events and CVD, CHD, and all-cause mortality in men living in eastern Finland. Furthermore, high mercury content in hair attenuated the beneficial effects of fish oils on the risk of acute coronary events and CVD and CHD mortality. The current data support our previous findings that a high mercury content in hair, indicating high mercury intake, is associated with increased risk of acute coronary events and CVD and CHD mortality.4 The results of this study are also consistent with a recent report from the EURAMIC study, in which high mercury levels in toenails were associated with the risk of future myocardial infarction.6 As in our study, in the EURAMIC study, high mercury content diminished the cardioprotective effect of DHA. However, contrary results were published in another recent report from the Health Professional Follow-Up Study.8 Although mercury levels in toenails ...
The study assesses the spatial distribution and sources of mercury contamination in the Ankobra River Basin in southwestern Ghana and discusses possible remediation options and challenges. Eighty-two (82) samples of water and streambed sediments from areas of active and historic artisanal mining and historic mine spoil from large-scale mining were analysed for their total mercury content using cold vapour Atomic Fluorescence Spectrometry (CV-AAS). The highest Hg concentrations were recorded from historic mine tailings, legacy of large scale mines in the area, which averaged 795 ppb but ranged from 80 ppb to 2500 ppb. Concentrations in streambed sediments averaged 139 ppb, but ranged from 63 ppb to 270 ppb. Water, expectedly, gave the lowest Hg concentrations with a mean value of 1.5 ppb, but ranged from below detection to 8 ppb. Areas worked by artisanal miners and historic tailings dumps at Bondaye and Prestea recorded the highest mercury values. These high mercury concentration sites constitute
We studied seasonal and physiological influences on mercury concentrations in western grebes (Aechmophorus occidentalis) and Clarks grebes (A. occidentalis) across 29 lakes and reservoirs in California, USA. Additionally, at three of these lakes, we conducted a time series study, in which we repeatedly sampled grebe blood mercury concentrations during the spring, summer, and early fall. Grebe blood mercury concentrations were higher among males (0.61 ± 0.12 μg/g ww) than females (0.52 ± 0.10 μg/g ww), higher among Clarks grebes (0.58 ± 0.12 μg/g ww) than western grebes (0.51 ± 0.10 μg/g ww), and exhibited a strong seasonal pattern (decreasing by 60% from spring to fall). Grebe blood THg concentrations exhibited a shallow, inverse U-shaped pattern with body size, and was lowest among the smallest and largest grebes. Further, the relationship between grebe blood mercury concentrations and wing primary feather molt exhibited a shallow U-shaped pattern, where mercury concentrations were highest...
Background: Mercury is a well-known neurotoxin. There are three kinds of mercury exposure: elemental mercury poisoning, inorganic mercury poisoning and organomercury poisoning. Organomercury is the most toxic. Twenty-four hour urine for mercury and blood mercury are the gold standards for diagnosis of mercury poisoning, including low-level chronic mercury exposure. Other tests for mercury level are discussed. The purpose of the present paper was to review recent data on the nature, pathophysiology, pharmacokinetics, diagnostic methods, treatment and the linkage to neurodevelopmental disabilities of mercury exposure in children. Methods: A literature search was undertaken of MEDLINE (1980-2003), and American Academy of Pediatrics, American Medical Association, American Dental Association, World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control websites. The search string mercury was used in MEDLINE and articles were selected as appropriate by two independent reviewers. All relevant information ...
The mercury cycle is a biogeochemical cycle involving mercury. Mercury is notable for being the only metal which is liquid at room temperature. It is a volatile metal and evaporates, though it takes quite a while to do so. Most natural mercury occurs as cinnabar, HgS. Here mercury (Hg2+) is bound very tightly to sulfur, but weathering slowly releases the mercury to the environment. There are also trace amounts of mercury in coal. Mining mercury or burning coal results in releasing mercury. Volcanoes and forest fires are also sources of mercury.[citation needed] Chlorine factories, among other sources, release mercury into the atmosphere. This mercury is deposited back onto land and water. Inorganic mercury can be converted by bacteria and archaea into the organometallic cation, methylmercury ([CH3Hg]+), which bioaccumulates in fish such as tuna and swordfish. Over long periods of time, some mercury recombines with sulfur and is buried in sediments. Then, the cycle repeats itself. Preindustrial ...
the impending EPA regulations on the control of mercury emissions from the flue stacks of coal-burning electric utilities has resulted in heightened interest in the development of advanced mercury control technologies such as sorbent injection and in-situ mercury oxidation. Although these technologies can effectively remove mercury from a flue stack, they share, along with many other control technologies, the common shortcoming of inter-media pollution transfer, i.e., the traffic of mercury from the air phase to the solid phase and the subsequent generation of hazardous waste. This work addresses the need for a total system of mercury removal and recovery from coal-utility flue stacks and from the environment. The research explores the capture of elemental mercury from the gas phase on an electrically conductive porous sorbent. The sorbent is then transferred to, and made the anode in, an electrochemical cell and the adsorbed elemental mercury is oxidized to mercury(II) which can be recaptured ...
The amount of mercury in fish and other seafood depends on the species and the levels of pollution in its environment. The mercury levels on this test are close to non-existent, but the essential minerals meet two of Cutlers counting rules. If Hg(0) is chemically modified to the ionized, inorganic species, Hg(2+), it becomes toxic. Whilst mercury is highly detrimental on its own, its destructive power can be increased 100 fold by exposure to other toxic metals such as aluminium, lead or cadmium. If the mercury is not immediately contained or cleaned up, it can evaporate, becoming an invisible, odorless, toxic vapor. Symptoms of mercury toxicity Some reports suggest that similar blood mercury levels may be associated with visual, nervous, or cardiovascular system effects in adults. This is such an example. Victoria Beckham is keepin it reel after tests found a dangerously high level of toxic mercury in her system. Mercury is a naturally occurring element found in air, water and soil. Mercury ...
Introduction. Mercury, a naturally occurring element that is released from a variety of sources including human activity, is used industrially all over the world because of its diverse properties. In the Brazilian Amazon, mercury contamination of fish can occur as a result of both natural biogeochemical processes and gold-mining activities (Pfeiffer and Lacerda, 1988; Eve et al., 1996; Lechler et al., 2000). Human mercury contamination results primarily from fish consumption because fish not only absorb methylmercury (MeHg) from the water throughout their life but also convert inorganic Hg+2 to methylmercury through biomethylation occurring in their body. Fish at the top of a food chain have the greatest accumulation of methylmercury (Barbosa et al., 1995; Shoeny, 1996; Ashner, 2002). In the Brazilian Amazon, many studies have already been carried out on riverine and Amerindian populations to investigate the health impacts of mercury exposure in different communities (Akagi et al., 1995; Barbosa ...
The adverse effects of prenatal mercury exposure, most commonly resulting from maternal fish consumption, have been detected at very low exposure levels. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, however, have been shown to support fetal brain and vision development. Using data from a prospective, cohort study of pregnant women from an inland area in the US South, we sought to understand the fish consumption habits and associated mercury levels across subpopulations. Over 30% of women had at least 1 µg/L of mercury in their blood, and about 2% had blood mercury levels above the level of concern during pregnancy (≥3.5 µg/L). Mercury levels were higher among Asian/Pacific Islander, older, higher educated, and married women. Fish consumption from any source was reported by 2/3 of the women in our study, with older women more likely to consume fish. Despite eating more fish meals per week, lower income, lower educated women had lower blood mercury levels than higher income, higher educated women. This

More studies are needed to estimate the contribution of urban areas to atmospheric mercury, and the impact of indoor air on outdoor air quality and human health. In the meantime, though, Lu says its important to take some action now. Mercury can be discovered during building renovations. For example, it can be found in the floor tiles of an industrial building that used mercury or after a mercury spill in an old laboratory. It can be difficult to retrieve. So, our starting point is to get the source of the mercury under control and then reduce indoor levels of it. Lu and her team continue to research the presence and impact of elemental mercury, their next objective will be to pinpoint and quantify buildings that are sources of elemental mercury. The papers lead authors are former Ryerson graduate student Elaine Cairns and undergraduate student Kavitharan Tharumakulasingam (a NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards recipient), both of whom were supervised by Lu.

Mercury regulation in the United States is a set of laws and regulations limiting the maximum concentrations of mercury (Hg) that is permitted in air, water, soil, food and drugs. These laws and regulations are promulgated by U.S. Federal Agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, (EPA) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as well as a variety of State and local authorities. Mercury occurs naturally in the environment and exists in a large number of forms. In pure form, it is known alternatively as elemental or metallic mercury. Elemental mercury is a shiny, silver-white metal that is liquid at room temperature. It is not found in this form in nature, however, but in compounds and inorganic salts. If not sealed off, mercury slowly evaporates into the air, forming a vapor. The quantity of vapor formed increases as temperatures rise. Elemental mercury is traditionally used in thermometers and some electrical switches. Inorganic mercury compounds or mercury salts, more commonly found ...
We used Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence Spectrometry to determine the annual evolution of the mercury speciation in a watershed disturbed by chlor-alkali effluents. Throughout the year, the river water is enriched in chloride, bromide and DOC due to punctual and diffuse industrial and domestic activities. Moreover, mercury concentrations are 50 to 100 times higher than the natural waters downstream to the chlor-alkali effluents. The hydrological regime and the water chemistry play an important role in the mercury speciation. During high water periods, the hydrological conditions (discharge, suspended sediment content and water temperature) may control the mercury partitioning in the river water, the pollutant being mainly adsorbed onto suspended particles. On the other hand, during the summers low waters, higher concentrations in chloride, bromide and DOC may lead to form stable Hg-Cl, Hg-Br and Hg-DOC complexes in the aqueous phase, facilitating the mercury percolation towards the groundwater. ...

Can we afford this growth? We already have high mercury contamination in the country.. CSE presented a mercury hotspot map for the country at the conference. This map, which compiles all studies on mercury monitoring, shows contamination in surface water, groundwater, human hair, blood and in fish that we eat. The coastal waters were particularly deadly, with levels of contamination exceeding the allowed limit. This, when we dont even know how much mercury we use, how we use it and where we use it. We do not regulate the products that use mercury in. In addition, coal use emits mercury and this unintentional use is not even considered in the assessments. We desperately need a tough policy to restrict and regulate emissions, said CSE.. Mercury has substitutes that are readily available. For instance, the chlor alkali industry, a key user of mercury, can switch to membrane cell processes. In fact, in 2003, the Union government gave a fiscal concession to this industry to promote a switchover. But ...

So how much mercury is in a CFL light bulb, compared to amalgam dental fillings or contaminated food? Even micrograms of mercury are enough to cause long-lasting damage, and the light bulbs contain about 4 milligrams of mercury on average, thousands of times more mercury than is released regularly by mercury amalgam dental fillings, and possibly tens of thousands of times more mercury than eating contaminated seafood.. Micrograms of exposure to mercury make a difference over time, building up and eventually leading to serious symptoms, and mercury is one of the most difficult things to get out of your body, and one of natures most vicious neurotoxins..

The reduction of mercury emission from fossil fuel applications is an increasing priority for the US power industry due to regulatory pressure. While mercury removal during combustion is well studied, mercury removal in gasification is less so. The increasing application of coal gasification in future plant designs supplies the incentive for more study of mercury removal gasification processes. In gasification where the mercury is expected to be elemental, activated carbon injection has been the most effective method of mercury removal. Absorption of elemental mercury at high temperature has not been shown to be effective. The carbon is best injected downstream where the temperature has moderated and an independent collector can be established. Experiments have been conducted at 400 F to compare mercury absorption on activated carbon as received and super activated carbon. The super activated carbon was prepared by soaking the carbon in 6M nitric acid followed by neutralization and washing. Each
Mercury may be converted from elemental Mercury to Methyl Mercury which is readily absorbed by fish and wildlife. As you move up the food web the concentration of mercury increase as the fish have no way to remove it from their bodies. As a consequence, larger fish have a higher level of mercury contamination. The risk for people is when they eat fish that has a high level of mercury contamination. ...

Just how does fish get contaminated with mercury? Mercury occurs naturally in the environment and can be released in to the air through industrial pollution. Mercury then falls from the air and can accumulate in streams and oceans where it then becomes methylmercury. Depending on the type, size and age (older fish have more mercury) of the fish, the degree to which it contains mercury may vary. Larger fish such as shark, swordfish, tilefish and king mackerel have larger levels of mercury. Safer and lower levels of mercury are found in fish, shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock and catfish. (What you need to know about mercury in fish and shellfish http://www.epa.gov/ ...
After freezing and thawing, Pseudomonas aeruginosa harboring a drug resistance plasmid (Hg , Strep ), became acutely sensitive to mercuric ions but not to streptomycin in the plating medium. Its sensitivity to both agents in the plating medium became more pronounced, suggesting a synergistic effect of the mercuric ions with streptomycin. This freeze-thaw-induced sensitivity was transient and capable of being repaired in a simple salts medium (0.5%K2HPO4 + 0.04%MJSO4 pH7.7). Transient wall and membrane damage were also observed in frozen-thawed preparations. From kinetics studies, repair of membrane damage preceded repair of wall damage and damage measured by mercuric ions and mercuric ions plus streptomycin. Osmotically shocked cells also were sensitive to mercuric ions, mercuric ions plus streptomycin and sodium lauryl sulfate, but not to sodium chloride or streptomycin alone. This sensitivity was transient and capable of repair in the same simple salts medium. Active transport of a ...
In this study, the impact of mercury (Hg) on human and ecological health has been known for decades. Although a treaty signed in 2013 by 147 nations regulates future large-scale mercury emissions, legacy Hg contamination exists worldwide and small-scale releases will continue. The fate of elemental mercury, Hg(0), lost to the subsurface and its potential chemical transformation that can lead to changes in speciation and mobility are poorly understood. Here, we show that Hg(0) beads interact with soil or manganese oxide solids and X-ray spectroscopic analysis indicates that the soluble mercury coatings are HgO. Dissolution studies show that, after reacting with a composite soil, ,20 times more Hg is released into water from the coated beads than from a pure liquid mercury bead. An even larger, ,700 times, release occurs from coated Hg(0) beads that have been reacted with manganese oxide, suggesting that manganese oxides are involved in the transformation of the Hg(0) beads and creation of the ...

Several reports address studies where the investi- gators have looked into possible effects at much lower exposure levels. In a study of 142 exposed and 65 control subjects, Miller et al. (1975) examined subclinical effects related to exposure to inorganic mercury in the chloralkali industry and in a factory for the manufacture of magnetic materials. Mercury levels in urine varied from normal to over 1000 g/litre. Neurological examination found evidence of eyelid fasciculation, hyperactive deep tendon reflexes and dermatographia, but these findings did not correlate with urinary mercury levels or length of exposure. However, a power spectral analysis of forearm tremor, by which it was possible to quantify tremor fre- quency distribution and amplitude, showed a significant increase in average tremor frequency with elevated urinary mercury level. An effect was observed at urine concen- trations above about 50 g/litre. Roels et al. (1982) studied psychomotor performance in workers in a chloralkali ...

For 26 chloralkali workers exposed to inorganic mercury and 26 age-matched, occupationally unexposed referents, the frequency and size distribution of micronuclei were determined in peripheral lymphocytes stimulated with either phytohemagglutinin or pokeweed mitogen. For the exposed workers the mean concentrations of mercury in urine, plasma, and erythrocytes were 16 nmol/mmol of creatinine, 48 nmol/l, and 78 nmol/l, respectively, and their mean exposure time was 10 years. Neither the frequency nor the size of micronuclei was significantly different in the two groups; nor were there any correlations to current mercury levels. However, in the exposed group, and with phytohemagglutinin as the mitogen, a statistically significant correlation between previous exposure to mercury (cumulative exposure or number of blood mercury peaks) and the frequency of micronuclei was found. This association was also present when the effects of age and smoking were allowed for, and it may indicate an accumulation ...
Mercury is recognized as a neurotoxin that can accumulate in fish and move through the food chain to other wildlife and humans. Innovative techniques are used to measure differences in mercury isotopes and provide unique signatures that can differentiate mercury sources deposited from the atmosphere, released from local ongoing and legacy point sources, or mobilized from the watershed and transported downstream.. Scientists have used these techniques in the Great Lakes and the Northeastern United States to answer questions about mercury sources in fish. For example:. •Mercury signatures in Great Lakes predatory fish were found to be more reflective of atmospherically sourced mercury than of sediment sourced mercury in each lake.. •Mercury signatures in fish in Northeast U.S. Streams indicated atmospheric sources in fish within forested-rural areas, whereas mercury isotope signatures indicated past (legacy) and present local sources in fish within predominantly urban-industrial ...
Mercury-resistant bacteria, which are able to reduce mercuric ion (Hg(2+)) to metallic mercury (Hg(0)), were examined for their ability to remove mercury from waste-water aerobically. Growth studies in artificial medium indicated that mercury increases the lag phase, but does not effect the growth rate of these bacteria. Further studies demonstrated that growth was minimal during a phase of rapid mercury removal, after which growth resumed. Small but significant amounts of carbohydrates are required for the mercuric ion reduction. Prolonged periods of bacterial growth under nonsterile conditions was accomplished without the loss of the mercuric reducing ability of the culture. A continuous culture of the resistant organism was maintained on raw sewage for two weeks, during which time relatively high concentrations of mercury (70 mg/L) were removed from the sewage at a rate of 2.5 mg/L h and at efficiencies exceeding 98%.
The article features info from the very last people youd want to trust: General Electric, a military industrial complex tied corporation that makes the lightbulbs and owns the History Channel.. Reading from the article:. We consulted the EPA and contacted a lighting specialist from General Electric, which sponsors this magazine [Txchnologist], in order to take on the issue of mercury in CFLs.. Are we talking about high levels of mercury?. No. And the amount of mercury in CFLs has dropped steadily since they first made inroads into the market 15-20 years ago. As recently as 2007, CFLs contained about 5 milligrams, enough to cover a ballpoint pen tip.. This is untrue. Milligrams of mercury are an enormous amount compared to the micrograms that build up and give people symptoms. Mercury vapor can be inhaled when the bulbs break, and the vapor can steadily build up in an enclosed area, possibly doing more damage than mercury dental fillings.. Thermometers used to contain much more mercury than ...
NaturalHealth365) Cases of chronic disease have reached epidemic proportions in the U.S., with issues related to the immune system high on the list. These diseases have all been associated with mercury-based dental amalgam fillings.. Dental amalgam fillings contain up to a 54 percent ratio of the neurotoxin mercury. The National Institute for Health, through an extensive epidemiological study, showed a high correlation between dental amalgam fillings and chronic disease. Yet, the FDA and other health agencies refuse to do anything about this huge public health risk.. The public is waking up to the dangers of dental amalgam fillings. The following are the top 10 types of chronic disease caused by the mercury in these toxic dental fillings:. 1. Autoimmune disease. Autoimmune issues linked with mercury fillings include arthritis, MS, ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease), Parkinsons disease, Alzheimers disease, muscle tremors, joint and muscle pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohns disease, ...
NaturalHealth365) Mercury, commonly used in dental amalgam fillings, is one of the most toxic substances on the planet. And, although the American Dental Association continues to insist that mercury-based silver fillings are safe, natural health experts have long warned that micro-levels of this highly-toxic substance can be released into the body, with grave health consequences.. Now, a disturbing new study shows that electromagnetic fields from WiFi - a hazard in their own right - accelerate the release of mercury from fillings, further increasing the threat to health. This research has some alarming implications - lets look at how you can protect yourself.. Amalgam fillings set the stage for a biological train wreck, according to many integrative healthcare providers. Although exposure to mercury can occur through the environment, vaccines and contaminated foods, the main source of exposure is silver dental amalgam fillings - which contain 50 percent elemental mercury. Mercury vapors, ...
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), factors such as growing electricity demand, ever-advancing technologies and changes in social behaviour have led to steadily increasing exposure to man-made electromagnetic fields. Dental amalgam fillings are among the major sources of exposure to elemental mercury vapour in the general population. Although it was previously believed that low levels are mercury (i.g. release of mercury from dental amalgam) is not hazardous, now numerous data indicate that even very low doses of mercury cause toxicity. There are some evidence indicating that perinatal exposure to mercury is significantly associated with an increased risk of developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Furthermore, mercury can decrease the levels of neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, noreprenephrine, and acetylcholine in the brain and cause neurological problems. On the other hand, a strong positive correlation
OBJECTIVES--The dental health of 73 workers previously exposed to mercury vapour at a chloralkali plant was studied and compared with that of 51 non-exposed referents. METHODS--A record of oral, periodontal, gingival and mucosal conditions, including teeth, restorations, prostheses, and oral hygiene, was established during a 30 min examination. The participants periodontal conditions were assessed according to the community periodontal index of treatment needs (CPITN). The results with the CPITN index were also compared with previously published data for another similar population. RESULTS--There was no significant difference between the exposed workers and the referents with respect to the number of remaining teeth, amount of amalgam restorations, crowns, bridges, or endodontically treated teeth. The oral hygiene among the exposed workers was significantly better than among the referents, but the periodontal health conditions did not significantly differ between the two groups, nor from those ...
This paper shows the link between dental amalgam mercury pollution and the available growing scientific research, that can no longer be ignored. We are reaching out to policy makers, NGOs and all interested parties who are working within the framework of the Minamata Convention on Mercury Treaty to urge immediate action to be taken to stop the use of dental amalgam, not by 2030, which according to a recent conference webinar in May, 2019, with the FDI (World Dental Association), is their suggested end date. In fact, FDI continued to cite old research to defend its use and to maintain the status quo. As we have referenced in our paper, another 10 years of using mercury in dental amalgam will have devasting environmental consequences for decades to come, but more importantly, the unjustifiable exposure to another decade of consumers to this known neurotoxin, is unconscionable. FDI even discussed how to address deficiencies of alternative non-mercury fillings in favor of continuing using mercury ...
in a hot combustion gas stream are removed therefrom by oxidizing the elemental mercury, to form a mercury compound, and adsorbing the mercury compounds on adsorbent particles such as activated alumina. Oxidation is catalytically promoted. After adsorbing a substantial quantity of mercury compounds, the spent adsorbent particles can be regenerated and re-used by heating the particles to decompose and drive off the mercury compounds. In another embodiment, oxidation of the elemental mercury is catalytically promoted at a catalyzing station, and the mercury compounds are removed from the gas stream by scrubbing.

The new research shows that electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) - which are produced by wireless technologies such as cell phones, laptops, tablets and microwave ovens - can accelerate and intensify the release of mercury. The study also suggests that routine medical procedures, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) and X-rays, are other culprits in quickening mercury release. To conduct the study, researchers placed 20 extracted, mercury-filled human teeth in artificial saliva and exposed ten of them to 20 minutes of radiofrequency radiation from a standard laptop computer operating at 2.4 GHz. Researchers then measured the mercury levels in the artificial saliva surrounding the teeth. They found that levels in the fluid of the unexposed teeth were .026 milligrams per liter, as compared to .056 for the mercury-filled teeth - reflecting a doubling of the mercury release.. The research, which was published in 2016 in Journal of Environmental Health Science and Engineering, was the first study ...
Q: My dentist wants to put silver amalgam fillings in my teeth. He says they are more durable than white composites. Is that correct?. A: A new research indicates that amalgam fillings do not perform as well as it was previously believed. Our friendly and very experienced dentist showed us new composite materials which bind perfectly to enamel. They look better too.. Q: My dentist claims that silver amalgam fillings are perfectly safe. Is that correct?. A: It all depends which dentist you ask that question. There are dentist who not only do not encourage patients to get these type of filings, but they would never put them in anybodies mouth. The research that we have found clearly shows that amalgam fillings pose serious hazard over time (scroll down for more evidence). Please take note that the so called silver fillings consist of 50% mercury, and mercury is poisonous - all toxicologists know this.. Q: I dont understand this. I have (mercury) silver fillings in my teeth but I do not ...
A childs first exposure to mercury from amalgam fillings* can occur at the moment of conception. Think of that and the implications it holds! At first glance it may sound like a crazy idea and easy to dismiss but it is absolutely true and cannot be discarded. If the mother has mercury amalgam silver fillings in her teeth the fetus will not only be exposed to mercury released from her fillings at the moment of its conception, but throughout the entire gestation period. It is being exposed to elemental mercury from dental fillings before it even has a tooth! However, the bad news doesnt end there. If a mother has amalgam fillings while she nurses her baby it will also be exposed to mercury released from her fillings-for as long as the child is being nursed. In addition, most babies in modernized countries will receive 10 vaccinations by age 5. These 10 vaccinations will consist of 33 doses of the vaccines, beginning shortly after birth and continuing through early childhood. Each dose will ...
Mercurous chloride has been most often used as a treatment for intestinal worms. In the past, large doses were often used to stimulate the intestines and remove blockages, although it is rarely used in medicine today due to the toxicity of mercury. When it is used as a laxative, if the treatment fails to work, large doses of other laxatives and water must be used to insure that no mercury is allowed to accumulate in the body. Mercury toxicity often results in severe neurological damage (vapors of mercury are far more dangerous than solid mercury compounds, although all mercury compounds are considered highly poisonous). Because of the extremely low solubility of mercurous chloride in water, very little is usually absorbed by the body, making it safer than most people would expect.. In laboratories, calomel electrodes are commonly found in pH meters and this is how mercurous chloride is widely used today.. ...

Mercury thermometer broke in mouth? Much more difficult is the situation when mercury from a thermometer hit a tissue surface or if a mercury thermometer broke in a place where mercury cannot be collected: indoors with slots in the floor or where a lot of things are laid out. Slowly and carefully squeeze mercury onto a damp paper towel. Small droplets will combine into a larger sphere shape, which will roll on a flat surface and break back into smaller droplets if dropped or if pressure is applied. Even in the last 20 years, most thermometers that are sold are dyed alcohol. Consider discontinuing the use of thermometers containing mercury if it is used for cooking or is a clinical thermometer. About half an hour ago my 4 year old son broke the mercury thermometer in his mouth . Kidney. Care must be taken to avoid scattering the mercury or allowing it to roll to a hard-to-reach location. $16.40 $ 16. If a mercury thermometer breaks or leaks, it can release toxic vapors. 40 ($8.20/Count) FREE ...
Hijiki is also said to aid health and beauty, according to Japanese custom. In the western world, Hijiki pills are available as a nutraceutical food supplement. Many forms of aquatic life also eat seaweed, where it enters into the food chain.. Edible seaweeds of all varieties have been shown to contain 1-50 parts per billion (ppb) of mercury. Bioaccumulation in the aquatic food chain carries over into human populations, where it can threaten development in utero and in early childhood by causing central nervous system damage. To prevent mercury poisoning, it is therefore necessary to accurately quantify total mercury in seaweed and seaweed products.. For the analysis described in the report, calibration is done using certified aqueous ionic-mercury standard solution diluted to a specified concentration. Measurement was performed by the NIC MA-3000 analyzer, a dedicated direct mercury analyzer that selectively measures total mercury by thermal decomposition, gold amalgamation and cold vapor ...

At the Pearl River Estuary of southern China, mercury and its environmental problems have long been a great concern. This study investigated the distribution and speciation of mercury compounds that are significantly influenced by the increasing content of humic acid (HA, a model natural organic matter) in this region. The inorganic mercury and methyl mercury, being adsorbed and converted at different HA levels, were studied in sediments and surface water at both mariculture and their reference sites. In mariculture sediments with higher HA content (up to 4.5%), more mercury were adsorbed at different compound levels, promoting the methylation and accumulation of mercury (P , 0.05) at the sediment-water interface. Seasonal shift in environmental temperature might control the HA content, subsequently favouring mercury methylation (maximum 1.75 ± 0.08 mg L⁻¹ d⁻¹) under warm weather conditions. In reference sites received less HA wastes, lower adsorption capacity and methylation rate were ...
Mercury and its compounds have been used in medicine, although they are much less common today than they once were, now that the toxic effects of mercury and its compounds are more widely understood. Thiomersal, (called Thimerosal in the United States), an organic compound used as a preservative in vaccines, though this use is in decline.[28] Another mercury compound Merbromin (Mercurochrome) is a topical antiseptic used for minor cuts and scrapes is still in use in some countries.. Mercury(I) chloride (also known as calomel or mercurous chloride) has traditionally been used as a diuretic, topical disinfectant, and laxative. Mercury(II) chloride (also known as mercuric chloride or corrosive sublimate) was once used to treat syphilis (along with other mercury compounds), although it is so toxic that sometimes the symptoms of its toxicity were confused with those of the syphilis it was believed to treat.[29] It was also used as a disinfectant. Blue mass, a pill or syrup in which mercury is the ...
Mercury Amalgams: Do you still have a mouth full of them? by Ingri Cassel After two of my dear friends were plagued with health problems that were only minimized by natural healing programs, it was discovered that they were both suffering from acute systemic mercury poisoning and the main source of this insidious poison was in their mouth. Both of these women have a mouthful of aging mercury amalgams. It has been shown that mercury is continually released from mercury dental fillings in the form of mercury vapor and abraded particles. This process is further stimulated and can be increased as much as 15-fold by simply chewing, brushing teeth, hot drinks and even swishing your mouth with a solution of hydrogen peroxide (used to reduce dental plaque.) What we have been lead to believe are silver dental amalgams actually contain 48-55 percent mercury, 33-35 percent silver and various amounts of copper, tin, zinc and other metals. For decades the American Dental Association has steadfastly ...

Blue mass, a pill or syrup in which mercury is the main ingredient, was prescribed throughout the 1800s for numerous conditions including constipation, depression, child-bearing, and toothaches.[6] In the early twentieth century, mercury was administered to children yearly as a laxative and dewormer, and it was used in teething ...
Consumption of fish contaminated with mercury is the primary exposure pathway by which humans are exposed to mercury. Mercury is known to be a neurological toxin that can cause attention and language deficits, impaired memory, and impaired visual and motor function, especially in children under the age of six. In addition, mercury exposure can lead to other health problems in adults, such as damage to the kidney and increased risk of coronary heart disease. This study assesses the exposure to mercury through consumption of fish from Kentucky surface waters. The exposure assessment is based on data collected by the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KDEP), Division of Water, from different streams and lakes in Kentucky and average consumption rates defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The design of this study is established to determine if people in Kentucky are at risk of mercury contamination and whether the Kentucky fish advisory protects the population from this
Parts of the population are permanently exposed to low levels of Hg degrees and Hg(II) from dental amalgam. It was the aim (1) to investigate the internal exposure to amalgam-related mercury from the kinetics of inorganic Hg in plasma and erythrocytes after amalgam removal, and (2) to estimate the amalgam-related absorbed dose. Dietary coexposure was monitored by determination of blood organic-Hg. Postremoval steady-state Hg concentrations were measured for 18 months. Eighty-two patients had been randomized into three groups: (A) removal of the fillings; (B) removal and non-specific detoxification, and (C) a health promotion program without removal. After amalgam removal, inorganic Hg dropped rapidly in plasma and red cells, stabilizing at 27% of preremoval levels after 60 days. Concentrations of organic Hg in plasma remained unchanged, indicating no change in dietary uptake of organic Hg. The concentration of organic Hg in red cells of group A was in the early postremoval phase lower and in the ...

The decision came as a result of the Sustainable Development Policy Institutes (SDPI) research and regressive advocacy campaigns to ban mercury dental amalgam use in the country from time to time. The research led by Dr Mehamood A Khawaja, Senior Advisor SDPI on Chemicals and Sustainable Industrial Development, over the last few years has been appreciated not only in Pakistan but also organisation working on mercury related issues in the region.. Lauding the decision of the government, SDPI termed it a right direction at a right time. SDPI is hopeful to eliminate mercury dental amalgam use not only for children and pregnant and breastfeeding women, but also public in general across the country to safeguard their health. Dr Khawja has appealed to the government to make legislation in this regard and strictly ban the use of mercury not only in dental amalgams but also in other devices. ...
Could your dental work be exposing you to toxins?. Dentists have been using dental amalgam for more than 150 years, its that silver-colored filling used for cavities, but what some people dont know is that 50-percent of that metal mixture is made of mercury. I was trying to avoid mercury when I was pregnant and nursing. I knew all the fish not to eat, but I had no idea it could be in my mouth, dental patient Amy Forseter said.. The 38-year-old says shes had more than a dozen cavities; most of them filled with dental amalgam, a mixture of metals thats 50-percent liquid mercury, a naturally occurring element thats highly toxic.. As soon as I learned that I had these toxins in my mouth, I wanted to immediately get it removed, she said.. For years some scientists have said the mercury from these fillings can leak, seeping into the body causing neurological problems for some people.. If youre a healthy person who can detox this, there may not be any noticeable changes, but for those of us ...
Mercury. The problem with dental amalgam fillings is that the amalgam is a liquid, albeit a very stiff one. This means that as the fillings erode, mercury is released into the mouth where it is inhaled and deposited in bone, kidneys and the brain. There is some very good evidence which now links mercury from dental amalgams to Alzheimers disease, but it may well be that it has the potential to trigger MS because heavy metals act as immune adjuvants (this is, of course, the reason why mercury as thimerosal is used in vaccinations). My personal view is that nobody should be walking around with dental amalgam in their teeth, but we can measure to see if this is a problem - firstly by doing a Kelmer test which measures urinary mercury levels before and after a chelating agent and secondly doing mercury sensitivity tests to see to what extent the immune system is activated by the presence of mercury. If these tests were very abnormal then there would be a clear indication for going ahead and getting ...
Industrial activities have increased atmospheric mercury deposition and global mercury contamination ≈3-fold since preindustrial times (1). Some of this deposited mercury is converted by bacteria to methylmercury, a highly toxic form that bioaccumulates through food webs. In thousands of lakes in North America, Europe, and Asia, methylmercury contamination of fish negatively impacts the health of humans and wildlife, causes financial losses to commercial and sport fisheries, and affects those traditional ways of life in which fish are consumed as primary foods (2-5). This issue has now approached a critical juncture because many nations (e.g., the United States and Canada) and organizations (e.g., United Nations Environment Program) are debating the implementation and extent of mercury emission controls. One of the reasons for this debate is that it has been notoriously difficult to establish how annual and regional patterns of mercury loading via deposition influence fish methylmercury ...
Mercury is a natural occurring chemical element present in tuna. It is widely debated because of its toxicity in large doses, though it is not dangerous in tuna. The form of mercury in tuna is called methylmercury. There are a lot of misunderstandings and misinformation about mercury in tuna. Fact is that with over thousands of years of tuna consumption there are no known proven cases of any humans suffering negative side effects of tuna which are brought in relation to mercury. Nevertheless persistently tuna is incorrectly related to the risk of mercury poisoning and brain damage. Actually many research reports point to the positive effects of eating tuna on brain development.. Most tunas absorb mercury through eating fish and plants exposed to it. This exposure is caused by ocean vents. These are cracks in the seafloor of our oceans releasing mainly hot water, but also several other elements such as mercury. This has been taking place for millions of years and is a natural phenomenon. Plants ...

Some planets are tilted so their North and South Poles are not straight up and down. Earth is tilted a bit - about 23 . Uranus is tilted a lot - more than 90 . Mercury, on the other hand, is hardly tilted at all. Mercurys tilt is less than 1/30th of one degree! Thats a lot smaller than Jupiters tilt, which comes in second place. Jupiter is tilted just a bit more than 3 .. We have seasons on Earth because of our planets 23 tilt. Most other planets are also tilted. They have seasons, too. Mercury does not have seasons because it isnt tilted. If you were at one of Mercurys poles, you would see a strange sight. The Sun would always be at the horizon, like it was rising or setting. The Sun would look bigger, too, because Mercury is closer to the Sun than Earth is. The big Sun would seem to move around the horizon, going up and down a little... but it would never rise all the way and it would never set all the way.. Mercury has lots of meteor craters. Some of the craters are near Mercurys ...
Often this is as a result of mercury found in dental amalgam fillings , sliver fillings and other forms of exposure such as industrial chemical exposure . We do often however see Mercury toxicity as a result of dental procedures combined with poor heavy metal detoxing capability in certain individuals . This is often as a result of a gene mutation call MTFHR and other SNIPS that involve detoxification.. A defect in MTHFR often results in poor utilisation of folate, defective detoxification and a myriad of symptoms.. In collaboration with holistic dentists, we utilise a unique , individualised detox plan than enables the safe removal of mercury from the body along side your dental work .. A thorough assessment of your health is also performed to ensure that your body is able to undergo the procedure to minimise any risks of side effects.. Please note that we only work along side Holistic Dentists who use the rubber dam method and who are aware of the potential risks associated with mercury ...
EPA Proposes Standards to Reduce Mercury Discharges from Dental Offices WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today proposed standards under the Clean Water Act to help cut discharges of dental amalgam to the environment. Amalgam is a mixture of mercury and other metals that dentists use to fill cavities. Mercury is discharged when dentists remove old fillings or remove excess amalgam when placing a new filling. Studies show about half the mercury that enters Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs) comes from dental offices. Mercury from amalgam can then make its way into the environment in a number of ways, including through discharge to water bodies. Contact with some microorganisms can help create methylmercury, a highly toxic form of mercury that builds up in fish, shellfish and fish-eating animals. Fish and shellfish are the main sources of human exposure to methylmercury. In response, many states and localities have implemented amalgam discharge-cutting programs ...
Mercury has been recognized as a neurotoxin that can accumulate in fish that might be consumed later by animals and humans. Beginning in the 1970s, numerous factors have resulted in reduced mercury releases in the Great Lakes Region including the Clean Water Act, Mercury Export Ban Act, sulfur and nitrous oxide controls, Mercury and Air Toxics Standards Rule, and changes in energy production from coal to natural gas. However, the connection between the resultant reduced air emissions and fish tissue concentrations has been difficult to establish.. Currently (2019), there are fish consumption advisories for elevated concentrations of mercury in consumable fish from all five Great Lakes, yet natural resource managers in this region are hampered by a poor understanding of how mitigation of sources relates to bioaccumulation responses and effects, which hampers effective strategies to reduce exposure levels for fish and people who consume them.. Therefore, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists on ...
Mercury from dental amalgam. This pollutant is omnipresent in the United States. Amalgam fillings are placed indiscriminately into cavities, because amalgam is cheap and easy to work with. The American Dental Association insists that dental amalgam is safe[5], while the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classify amalgam as a toxic and hazardous substance: Another source of exposure to low levels of elemental mercury in the general population is elemental mercury released in the mouth from dental amalgam fillings[6] (Transportation, storage, and disposal of mercury is regulated by the Code of Federal Regulations, 29 CFR 1910.1000, and its willful violation is a criminal offense, except when mercury is stored in your mouth by a licensed dentist.) It isnt surprising that dentists in the United States have the highest rate of depression, suicide, and drug and alcohol addiction, and the lowest life expectancy among all medical ...
Research that points to serious health problems associated with mercury fillings continues to accumulate, building tension among health professionals and patients nationwide. Though the American Dental Association does not recommend having silver amalgam fillings removed, international authorities differ in opinion. With the recent dental amalgam ban in Costa Mesas, California, Americans are revisiting the potential poisonous nature of traditional silver fillings.. Comments by Dr. Ted Herrmann:. Mercury is one of the most toxic chemicals known to man. From lead paint to thermometers, we have seen consumer goods be recalled time and time again for containing unsafe levels of mercury. The American Dental Association still has not recommended that individuals with silver fillings have those fillings replaced. However, authorities at the World Health Organization state that:. …mercury contained in dental amalgam is the greatest source of mercury vapour in non-industrialized settings, exposing the ...
In this study mercury was determined in canned tuna fish produced and distributed in Iran after digestion by the standard methods of AOAC. Mercury contents in fish and canned tuna fish were determined by cold vapor atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The metal contents expressed in mg/kg wet weight for mercury varied from 0.017 to 0.394 (average of 0. 089) and 0.023 to 0.529 (average of 0.146) in fish and canned tuna fish, respectively. The values were comparable and in the range of with the literature valves. The results of this study indicate that fish and tuna fish of produced and marketed in Iran have concentrations well below the standards FAO/WHO levels of these toxic metals and only one tuna samples exceeded the European dietary limit of 0.5 mg Hg/kg.

There has been much debate on the safety of amalgam fillings. Currently, dental amalgam is considered to be a medical device, and is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA is responsible for ensuring that dental amalgam is reasonably safe and effective, and that, among other things, the product labeling seen by dentists has adequate directions for use and includes any appropriate warnings. (source) However, an increasing number of dentists have stopped using amalgam fillings on their patients after studies have shown how mercury vapor and particulate matter derived from amalgam fillings can cause severe problems in patients. Dr. Reese is a holistic dentist and an active member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). This organization advocates biological dentistry and achieving all the goals of modern dentistry while always choosing the safest, least toxic techniques, including safe replacement of mercury fillings.. ...

What is the safety of mercury dental amalgam? We use science to debunk many of the myths surrounding mercury products and mercury toxicity.
Researchers evaluated mercury released from dental amalgam fillings after 7-T and 1.5-T MRI in extracted teeth that were placed in a solution of artificial saliva. The mercury content in the 7-T group was 0.67 parts per million, about four times the levels found in the 1.5-T and control groups. Amalgam consists of approximately 50 percent mercury, a known toxin.
Models for solubility of noble gases in liquid metals are reviewed in detail and evaluated for the combination of mercury and helium for applications at the Spallation Nuetron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Gas solubility in mercury is acknowledged to be very low; therefore, mercury has been used in ASTM standard methods as a blocking media for gas solubility studies in organic fluids and water. Models from physical chemistry predict a Henry coefficient for helium in mercury near 3.9x1015 Pa-molHg/molHe, but the models have large uncertainties and are not verified with data. An experiment is designed that bounds the solubility of helium in mercury to values below 1.0x10-8 molHe/molHg at 101.3 kPa, which is below values previously measurable. The engineering application that motivated this study was the desire to inject 10 to 15 micron-radius helium bubbles in the mercury target of the SNS to reduce pressure spikes that accompany the beam energy deposition. While the experiment

It is highly unlikely that person could develop mercury poisoning from eating tuna, simply because there is so little of it in this particular type of fish. One of the best things about tuna is that it is so nutritionally beneficial while containing a very minimal amount of mercury.. You will find that unlike other types of fish, tuna does not have a very significant amount of mercury at all, especially the white albacore variety. There are certain types of tuna that do contain more mercury than others, though you will find that in general this type of fish does not have a lot in it. It would take an outrageous quantity of tuna to be consumed on a daily basis for someone to succumb to mercury poisoning so you shouldn’t worry about this at all, even if you eat it on a regular basis.. ...

Dentistry may not be the first use of mercury that comes to mind when considering this heavy metal. Nevertheless the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Global Mercury Assessment 2013 revealed that mercury in dental use amounts to some 10% of global mercury consumption overall, and over 20% of global mercury consumption in products. Due to growing concern regarding impacts of mercury on the environment, governments decided to negotiate a legally binding instrument on mercury, and the text of the Minamata Convention on Mercury was completed and adopted in 2013, one of the key provisions being the requirement for countries to phase down their use of dental amalgam. Based on official country responses to a UNEP survey questionnaire, this report presents a range of measures already taken by some countries in pursuit of their objectives to phase down or entirely eliminate the use of dental amalgam. It is intended that these examples may inspire and instruct other countries efforts.. pdf ...
Prior studies focused on bioaccumulation of mercury (Hg) and on large, long-lived fish species as the major environmental source of Hg, but little is known about consumption of small-sized fish or about non-dietary determinants of circulating Hg levels. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whole blood mercury concentration (WBHg) and its major dietary and non-dietary correlates in Korean adults. We analyzed cross-sectional data from 3,972 (male = 1,994; female = 1,978) participants who completed the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey IV, 2008 to 2009. Relevant factors included diet, geographic location of residence, demographics, and lifestyle. WBHg concentration was measured using cold-vapor atomic absorption spectrometry. Multivariable linear models assessed independent correlates of dietary and non-dietary factors for WBHg levels. Median levels of WBHg were 5.1 μg/L in men and 3.7 μg/L in women. Higher levels of fish/shellfish intake were associated with higher levels of
