The effect has been investigated of dietary lipids on the whole-body retention and organ distribution of organic and inorganic mercury in mice. A single oral dose of methylmercury chloride or mercuric chloride labelled with 203Hg was given to female NMRI mice fed semi-synthetic diets containing varying amounts (5, 10, 20 or 50%) of energy derived from lipid (coconut oil, soya oil, or cod liver oil). The whole-body retention and relative organ distribution of mercury depended on diet composition… CONTINUE READING
