Millions of tons of mercury trapped mercury in Arctic permafrost

FYI.

Millions of tons of trapped mercury could be released as world warms:

The world’s largest reservoir of mercury lies in Arctic permafrost, the layer of frozen soil that’s at risk of thawing because of warming temperatures, The Washington Post reports. Scientists drilled permafrost cores in 13 locations across Alaska and measured the mercury contained in them. Based on those measurements, they estimate that 1.7 million tons of mercury are trapped in permafrost soils across the Northern Hemisphere—more than what’s found in all other soils, the atmosphere, and the ocean combined, the team reports in Geophysical Research Letters. The mercury is there naturally, a result of plants not fully decomposing in harsh northern climates.

The Arctic is full of toxic mercury

FYI.

The Arctic is full of toxic mercury, and climate change is going to release it:

“There are 32 million gallons worth of mercury, or the equivalent of 50 Olympic swimming pools, trapped in the permafrost, the scientists wrote in a study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. For context, that’s “twice as much mercury as the rest of all soils, the atmosphere, and ocean combined,” they wrote.”

Irrefutable, undeniable proof that mercury is still used in vaccines injected into children

Irrefutable, undeniable proof that mercury is still used in vaccines injected into children:

Because there has been a malicious disinformation effort to convince doctors, nurses and the public that vaccines given to children don’t contain mercury, I’m posting this letter from the State of California Health and Human Services Agency as proof that mercury is still injected into children via vaccines.

More research confirms: There is definitely a link between autism and mercury

More research confirms: There is definitely a link between autism and mercury:

As some people continue to deny that there is a link between autism spectrum disorder and mercury, a pair of new studies have now been added to the growing pile of evidence illustrating just how wrong they are.

The research involved meta-analysis of studies investigating the link between mercury and autism spectrum disorder that were carried out over the past 12 years. This type of study is highly advantageous as it allows researchers to consolidate vast piles of research, which can often be complex and even conflicting.

The first meta-analysis, which was carried out by researchers from the Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences in Iran, was focused specifically on mercury. The second one, which was conducted by Tehran University of Medical Sciences researchers, looked at mercury as well as other heavy metals like lead. In both cases, cutting-edge statistical techniques were used to yield unbiased results.

Heavy metals can cause chronic urinary and reproductive health problems, according to a study on dental fillings by the CDC

Heavy metals can cause chronic urinary and reproductive health problems, according to a study on dental fillings by the CDC:

Just in case you’re wondering: yes, dental amalgam fillings are bad for you, and according to new data, it may be enough to wreak havoc on your kidneys and your fertility.

People with amalgam fillings are more likely to be at risk of chronic health conditions, according to information released by the non-profit organization Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions.

The release, which cites the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention‘s (CDC) National Health and Nutrition Survey (NHANES), notes that people who are exposed to mercury through amalgams have notably higher cases of genitourinary disease, where prevalence of the illness was attributed to the number of amalgam present in the body. In 2009, a study discovered that inorganic mercury levels in people have steadily been growing. The study, which used data from the NHANES, noted that mercury was detected in 30 percent of women aged 18 to 49 from 2005 to 2006. This data greatly differed from the one gathered from 1999 to 2000, which pegged detection rates at two percent. Data sampled from hair also revealed that 22 percent were exposed to dangerous levels of mercury, with some states such as Florida and New York having levels as high as 30 percent.

Preventing Mercury Exposure Kalimantan, Indonesia

Preventing Mercury Exposure Kalimantan, Indonesia:

UNIDO estimates that mercury amalgamation from this kind of gold mining results in the release of an estimated 1,000 tons of mercury per year, which constitutes about 30 percent of the world’s anthropogenic mercury emissions. It is estimated that between 10 and 15 million artisanal and small-scale gold miners worldwide, including 4.5 million women and 600,000 children [1].

According to UNIDO, as much as 95 percent of all mercury used in artisanal gold mining is released into the environment, creating a danger on all fronts—economic, environmental and human health (2005). Covered by the 2008 World’s Worst Polluted Places Report, ASM still threatens today’s world environment and public health.
