Metal poisoning is widespread, yet seldom diagnosed.
Many disabling chronic diseases can be attributed to unrecognized toxic metal poisoning. Neurological conditions such as Parkinson's and autism to flu like or pain syndromes like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia may be undiagnosed toxic metal poisoning.
Problems Mercury can cause
Mercury poisons fundamental metabolic processes causing a variety of problems. Different people will experience a different progression of symptoms, depending on their individual biochemistry. Whether any of these symptoms actually occur, and the nature and severity of the symptoms, depend on the degree of exposure, whether the exposure is acute (sudden) or chronic (ongoing) and the individual's ability to excrete the toxin. Following is a list of some of the "diseases" or "diagnosis" that can actually be chronic mercury poisoning.
Addison's Disease Allergies Alzheimer's
Amylotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Ankylosing Spondylitis Anorexia Nervosa
Anxiety Asperger's Asthma
Attention Deficit Disorder, ADHD & ADD Autism Autoimmune disease
Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression) Borderline Personality Disorder Bulimia
Candidiasis Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Colitis
Crohn's Disease Depression Endocrine disorders
Environmental Illness Fibromyalgia Food Allergies
Gastritis Hypogonadism Hypothyroidism
Infertility Insomnia Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Juvenille Arthritis Learning Disabilities Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
Multiple Sclerosis Myasthenia Gravis Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Panic attacks Parkinson's Disease Psychosis
Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Schizophrenia
Sciatica Sleep disorders Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
Yeast Syndrome

Sources or Mercury Poisoning
Amalgam fillings are approximately 50% or more Mercury. Two (or more) metals in an acid environment (your mouth) is called a battery. Mercury vapors are released every time you chew. The amalgam fillings wear down and corrode over time releasing the mercury into your body.
The aquatic food chain can concentrate organic mercury compounds in fish and seafood, which, if eaten by humans, can affect the central nervous system, impairing muscle, vision, and cerebral function, leading to paralysis and sometimes death (see Minamata disease). Acute mercury poisoning causes severe digestive-tract inflammation. Mercury accumulates in the kidneys, causing uremia and death. Exposure of the developing fetus through maternal intake of contaminated fish can result in neurologic developmental abnormalities in cognitive and motor functions.
Many vaccinations contain Thimerosal, a mercury based preservative. Drugs containing mercury can cause sensitivity reactions, sometimes fatal. In these cases the Mercury is injected directly into your body. Mercurochrome®/Merbromin (topical disinfectant) Thimerosal/Tincture of Merthiolate (topical disinfectant and preservative) Topical medications for psoriasis, eczema, etc. (older products) Homeopathic remedies, Mercurial preservatives in over-the-counter nasal sprays, hemorrhoidal ointments, eye and contact lens products.
Oral and rectal fever thermometers Basal thermometers (for natural family planning) Candy, deep fry, and oven thermometers Indoor and outdoor thermometers Specialty thermometers such as mason’s hygrometer or sling psychrometer (for determining relative humidity), minimum-maximum thermometer (greenhouse/horticulture use) Thermometers for incubators and other on-farm uses.
Barometers used for measuring barometric pressure (climatological) Manometers used to monitor vacuum in milking systems (dairy farms) Manometer/vacuum gauge device used for carburetor synchronization (for multicarburetor motorcycles, cars, and boats).
All fluorescent lamps All high intensity discharge (HID) lamps: mercury vapor, metal halide, high pressure sodium ‘Neon’ lamps: many colors contain argon gas and mercury; when purchasing, specify non-mercury colors (filled with neon gas) if possible Tilt switch in ‘silent’ wall switches (look for ‘top’ mark) Tilt switch in heating/cooling thermostats (also listed above under heating and cooling systems) Tilt switch in automatic shut off steam irons (except for newer models with one-hour shutoff) Tilt switch in some cellular/portable phones Tilt switch in cover of some portable/laptop computers Tilt switch in gas gauge of some riding lawnmowers and lawn tractors Tilt switch in some sump pumps Mercuric oxide batteries; used primarily in hearing aids, cameras/light meters, and watches.
Tilt switch in hood and trunk lights Tilt switch in bilge pumps Manometer/vacuum gauge device used for carburetor synchronization (for multicarburetor motorcycles, cars, and boats).
Gas ranges and wall ovens (home and RV use, standing and electronic pilot): mercury flame sensor/safety valve Gas dryers: mercury flame sensor/safety valve (pre-glow plug models) Gas refrigerators: Assume presence of mercury flame sensor/safety valve in all brands and models except Norcold model 1082 and 600, 900, 1200 series gas and gas/electric refrigerators Washing machines: spin cycle shutoff tilt switch attached to lid (concealed under top cover) Chest Freezers: tilt switch in lid for light Refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers: small mercury displacement relay with “top” mark is believed to have been used in compressor circuit of most makes and models and may still be in production (confirming this) Gas hot water heaters do not use a mercury flame sensor/safety valve
Gas space heaters: mercury flame sensor/safety valve Boilers/hot water or steam heat: mercury flame sensor/safety valve (gas only); aquastat, pressurestat and other hydronic controls (any fuel) Furnaces/gravity or forced air heat: mercury flame sensor/safety valve (gas only); fan limit devices and other air controls (any fuel) Gas air conditioners: assume presence of mercury flame sensor/safety valve Thermostats for heating and air conditioning systems (may also contain nickel-cadmium battery for clock) Other applications, e.g., heat pumps, evaporative coolers, etc., are unknown
Manufacture of paints, various household items, and pesticides uses mercury; the finished product and the waste products released into air and water may contain mercury. Chronic poisoning, from occupational inhalation or skin absorption, causes metallic taste, oral inflammation, blue gum line, extremity pain and tremor, weight loss, and mental changes (depression and withdrawal). In young children, acrodynia (pink disease) is probably caused by an organic mercury compound in house paints. Pesticides: crabgrass killer, fungicides (orchard/seed dressing use, golf course mold treatment)
Weight/counterweight in grandfather clocks, homemade dumbbells Archery/Crossbow/Firearms damper or shock/recoil absorber Jewelry (usually a glass ampule) Mirrors (technology discontinued about 1900) Spiritual/ritual use in some Caribbean/Hispanic communities.
