The extent of mercury (Hg) exposure among Saudi mothers and their respective infants
Among the several biomarkers of Hg exposure, Hg levels in maternal hair and urine were the strongest predictors of infant exposure, suggesting that the infants were exposed to Hg predominately during pregnancy rather than during breastfeeding.
Blood Mercury Levels in Children with Kawasaki Disease and Disease Outcome
The findings indicate that KD patients with lower sodium concentrations had a remarkably higher proportion of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) resistance and juvenile Taiwanese had higher mercury concentration in blood compared to other populations.
Determination of the Content of Mercury in Vitamin and Mineral Dietary Supplements
The results presented in this study proved that the amount of mercury in tested dietary supplements is much lower than the value of valid regulations.

Total blood mercury concentrations in the U.S. population: 1999-2006.
Reference levels of blood mercury and association with metabolic syndrome in Korean adults
The blood Hg level in Korean adults is higher than that in USA and other Western countries, while it is similar to or lower than thatin other Asian countries, influenced by sociodemographic factors and individual lifestyles including dietary habits.
Blood Total Mercury Concentrations in the Canadian Population: Canadian Health Measures Survey Cycle 1, 2007–2009
The first description of blood THg levels in the general Canadian population is presented and these findings will serve as a national baseline for monitoring future changes should they arise.
German Environmental Survey 1998 (GerES III): environmental pollutants in blood of the German population.
The German Environmental Survey was conducted for the third time in 1998 (GerES III). The probability sample of about 4800 subjects was selected to be representative for the German population with
Mercury in human brain, blood, muscle and toenails in relation to exposure: an autopsy study
In a fish-eating population, intake of MeHg via the diet has a marked impact on the MeHG concentration in the brain, while exposure to dental amalgam restorations increases the I-Hg concentrations in the head.
Global methylmercury exposure from seafood consumption and risk of developmental neurotoxicity: a systematic review.
There is a need for policies to reduce Hg exposure among women and infants and for surveillance in high-risk populations, the majority of which live in low-and middle-income countries.

    Reviews of environmental contamination and toxicology
  • 2009
This review summarizes the sources and cycling of global mercury in the environment, pathways of exposure, toxicity and exposure evaluation, toxicokinetics, the common biomarkers to evaluate exposure and effects in populations, and finally review the nutritional risks and benefits from fish consumption.
Mercury in seafood: Mechanisms of accumulation and consequences for consumer health
The mechanisms of mercury accumulation and distribution in fish tissues and the toxicological consequences of mercury exposure from seafood consumption with regard to international safety guidelines are discussed.
