Exposure to even small amounts of mercury over a long period may cause negative health effects, including damage to the brain

Seems some don’t even need mercury for brain damage :slight_smile:

I can’t say that I didn’t. :slight_smile:

I do recall the propanganda from many industries in australia hinting that incredibly high levels in the fish caught in waterways around their industrial sites were both naturally ocurring & nothing to worry about.

Bah! What does the World Health Organisation know about safe levels of incredibly toxic substances!

In the 1930`s, a common salve for killing lice, at least here in Norway, contained mercury.
It was simply called “mercury salve”. :eek:

I have this firsthand, from my uncle, who got lice in school, and used it! He is 77 years old now, so I guess he was not poisoned. :bigsmile:
