Mercury (Hg): Exposure Routes and Health Effects

Mercury bio-accumulates in human brain, the food chain and the environment and is highly toxic. Pregnant-to-be woman, the elderly and children, especially developing foetuses and infants, are particularly vulnerable to mercury. Here we demonstrate that mercury exposure occurs through multiple routes and that individuals can reduce significant exposure from sources like artisanal gold mining, fish consumption and proximity to mining activities.

Silver (Ag): Exposure Routes and Health Effects

Silver is becoming more pervasive in our food, in dental and medical devices, in implants and even the cloths we wear. Silver forms silver-protein complexes when absorbed into the circulation and these become deposited in key soft tissues, including the skin, liver, kidney, spleen, lungs, and brain and at this stage must be presumed to present a health risk to exposed persons under some circumstances. Here we show ways we are increasingly exposured to silver and as such help us develop stratagies for avoidance and minimisation so as to reduce possible harm. This report is especially useful for those who have found levels in their body through pathology testing or the Toxtest/EAL Hair Analysis of toxic metals. This article will be updated as more information becomes available.
