Mercury

A holistic dentist talks about her nightmare with mercury


She says she first remembers developing a myriad of medical problems in grade school, but no one seemed to know why. The last thing the medical/dental community thought was that her problems could ever have been caused by her fillings.

In-ground wastewater disposal contaminates environment with mercury


Pervasive, toxic forms of mercury are derived from more than just the pollution of unclean coal-fired power plants around the world. Traces of toxic mercury, often measured in waste water, can be exacerbated by chemical processes that take place in wastewater after it's released into the ground. Biogeochemist Carl Lamborg found in recent studies that mercury pollution is made more mobile and pervasive in the presence of specific microbial actions which take place exclusively in underground wastewater.

Sea ice cracks cause mercury to accumulate in Arctic environment


An investigation into Arctic sea ice and how it reacts with the sun to draw in mercury and other toxins from the atmosphere has uncovered some alarming truths about the true accumulation of heavy metals at the earth's poles. Recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature, the new research reveals that far more mercury than previously thought is being pulled out of the sky and deposited into Arctic sea water and ice, which of course means more pollution for humans.

Mercury exposure threatens the life of our children


According to the World Health Organization, mercury exposure is highly toxic to human health and poses a specific threat to the development of children in early life and while they are in utero. Mercury occurs naturally and exists in various forms which are elemental, organic and inorganic.

Global Treaty to Curb Mercury–Except When It Comes to Children’s Vaccines


Mercury is notorious for damaging the developing brains and nervous systems of babies and children. Concern about the serious effects of mercury pollution brought delegates from more than 140 nations to Geneva this January to put the finishing touches on a global treaty to minimize emissions. But there’s a form of mercury that the treaty won’t touch – one that is injected, in tiny amounts, straight into young kids’ bodies.

Five simple steps to detoxing your body of disease-causing mercury and heavy metals


Heavy metal toxins are all around us and in us to varying degrees. They tend to accumulate in tissue. Most household products have some sort of heavy metals that leach into our food and beverages.
