  Four Top Ways You Become Exposed to Mercury

Mercury poisoning is a significant health threat for more and more people, despite the fact that its symptoms often go unrecognized as coming from that toxic metal.

In modern times, we no longer have hat makers using mercury (which is where the phrase 'mad as a hatter' originated). Nor do we have doctors treating syphillis with mercury. Yet we are exposed in ways that are less obvious than those two examples, but they are still just as harmful, especially because mercury toxicity is cumulative. Here are the four top ways we as modern people are being poisoned by mercury:

1. Burning of coal, resulting in mercury in the air that lands on bodies of water and moves to the sediment,

2. Dental amalgam in sewage sludge,

3. Out gassing from crematoria emissions, and

4. The preservative used in many vaccines, called Thimerosol,
  which contains mercury.

A sad demonstration of the toxic effects of mercury took place in the fall and winter of 1971-72, when wheat seed shipped to Iraq. As it had been intended for planting, it was treated with an alkyl mercury fungicide, but it was mistakenly used to prepare bread.

More than 6,500 Iraqis were hospitalized with neurological symptoms and 459 died.

You can find out what your mercury exposure is based on where you live. To do so,visit this link:
