Lack of demonstrated neurotoxicity among fish-eating populations has been cited by the World Health Organization and others as supporting an adult LOEL (lowest observed effect level) of > or = 200 ppb blood mercury equivalent. We reviewed 13 published evaluations of neurologic status as related to tissue mercury or methylmercury concentration in long-term fish-eating populations. Review criteria included study size, design (sampling strategy, characterization of exposure, characterization of… CONTINUE READING
