Exposures to Mercury From the Environment
Quote:Exposures to Mercury From the Environment

Mercury (Hg) is a naturally occurring element that is ubiquitous in the Earth's core, crust, soils, oceans, and atmosphere. Mercury can exist in elemental, inorganic, and organic forms, but almost all of the global mercury pool is elemental.[1] One of the organic forms, methylmercury, is the form of current toxicologic concern.

In many countries people have been warned not to eat fish more than once per month due to mercury and other toxins, so sad. I don't eat much of the fish that I catch any more due to high levels of mercury and I try to eat fish as low down the food chain as possible. I wonder if I ever have children whether they will ever be able to eat salt water fish?

Here try it this way and it is still up directly:

Google: mercury emissions from the earth's core

OP article is the first link and is in its entirety.

WoW! About half of environmental mercury occurs from vapors escaping from the earth's core.

Looking for information on mercury levels in polar bears and arctic and antartic indigenous wildlife.

There is really scant information available. But makes you wonder about the extent and horrors of the other side of "manmade" pollution and what it could be covering, hmm...

Even scarier is the PCB levels in us and animals, also see brominated flame retardants.

Yep, from 1976-1990 when I worked in a State Public Health Department, I can tell you the biggy's when I left were PCB and Radon for the state level Toxic Hazards Programs that, of course, are funded by the federal government.

Now, the real kicker was the Radon Program was just taking wing when I left in 1990. It had been established as an effort for a couple of years but it was really starting to become a huge public health funded endeavor.

Check this out: Google: Electromagnetic fields concentrate radon decay products.

Many people say that when you live far from built up areas with no phones, TV, etc, you feel much better and have an increased clarity of thought. I hope to find out for myself one day soon, It would take a bit of getting used to though.

I don't think you can find much unpolluted land (if you live in the US) anyway.

Once, on a drive through the very rural northern part of the state I reside in now, for about 5 miles I smelled the worst toxic strench of my life. Obviously, someone was having a real good chemical dump in an area known for its pristine wilderness and beauty.

I really think the whole country is toxic. And the thing that sucks was it was all manmade. Go back to the whole Love Canal fiasco. The EPA wanted to rename Love Canal - Sunrise City.
Just absolutely amazing these guys...

Have you ever thought of leaving the US? It may not be such a great place to live soon. I live in Australia but New Zealand is also very nice, They have the best environmental policies in the world.

Oh, I have definitely thought of leaving. Economically, that just couldn't happen at all at this time.

My late ex-father-in-law spent some extended time in Australia in late 70's. The pictures he brought back were amazing and a doctor I worked for honeymooned in New Zealand and spoke extensively about his trip and the flora and fauna of New Zealand is mind boggling. Very beautiful.
