Mercury poisoning

Mercury poisoning caused by exposure to mercury or its compounds. Mercury can enter the environment through the improper disposal of fluorescent tubes, tilt switches, older computers, batteries and paint. Mercury is toxic in very low doses, and causes brain heart, kidneys, lungs, and immune system damage. Exposure to mercury can occur from breathing contaminated air, from eating foods that have acquired mercury residues during processing, from exposure to mercury vapor in mercury amalgam dental restorations and from improper use or disposal of mercury and mercury-containing objects, for example, after spills of elemental mercury or improper disposal of fluorescent lamps. Organisms exposed to mercury through contact with exposed substances, like earthworms in soil or fish in water, or through ingestion of already contaminated organisms or materials, such as grazers eating plants from contaminated soil. Mercury uptake by plants is extremely harmful. They show damage to structure and phytomass, decreased amounts of chlorophyll, as well as plant death in some species. Ecosystems include areas with high concentrations of avian and aquatic organisms, as these are primary targets for mercury bioaccumulation. These areas particularly at risk due to the high levels of organism exposure to the environmental system, and thus are more susceptible to the effects, even indirectly. The consumption of fish is most significant source of ingestion-related mercury exposure in humans and animals, although plants and livestock also contain mercury due to bioconcentration of mercury from seawater, freshwater, marine and soils, and atmosphere, and due to biomagnification by ingesting other mercury-containing organisms. Mercury has 3 forms: (1) elemental mercury, (2) inorganic salts, and (3) organic compounds. Organic mercury compounds methylmercury is the most toxic in nature. Fish and shellfish are the main sources of methylmercury exposure to humans. High levels of methylmercury in the bloodstream of unborn babies and young children may harm the developing nervous system, making the child less able to think and learn.
