Default Fun with Mercury

our post count is really low today, so:

Fun with Mercury

this is just the personal opinion of your resident bipolar maniac

I am not your librarian! do your own research!

are you usually tense for no apparent reason?

do you think it may be because you have mercury poisoning?

if so, this can be tested by chewing two 200mcg selenium tablets and holding them in your mouth for 15 minutes. if the tension is substantially reduced, then it is quite likely mercury poisoning is causing the tension.

comments?

I usually just pee in a bottle and test it on my machine. Yes I had Mercury, we all do if you eat any amount of seafood.

Generally not a habit of mine, being tense, but I do eat quite a bit of seafood.
Havent asked my doc to test for it, but might do so next time I visit.

From what I have read, people who tend toward autism tend to hold toxins more tightly than other people (one reason they are autistic) and without a chelator agent they will measure clean when they are heavily toxic.

I eat a lot of tuna, as well as other seafood. Aside from dietary exposure, I also have come into direct contact with mercury and mercury contaminated implements many times over the past decade. Granted, I wore PPE, but my overall level of exposure is higher than the majority of the population. Due to this professional exposure I have heavy metals testing done frequently. (They draw 9 vials of blood!)

Currently I am at 1ppm... The highest I have ever been is 3ppm. I believe our duty limit is 15. I can't see how people are getting mercury poisoning without actually chewing on a thermometer or something.

"What about mercury in fluorescent light bulbs

A fluorescent light bulb (also referred to as a "lamp") is a gas-discharge bulb that uses electricity to excite mercury vapor. The excited mercury atoms produce short-wave ultraviolet light that causes a phosphor to fluoresce, producing visible light. Mercury is an essential component of all fluorescent light bulbs, and allows these bulbs to be energy-efficient light sources. "


I use to work in a store where I changed the long fluorescent light bulbs and broke them in the dumpster. I suppose you have never been near a place were a fluorescent light bulb has been broken? And I suppose that as a kid you didn't rub mercury on coins to make them shiny? (sarcasm)

I also used to use mercury vapor rectifiers in electronic installations like broadcast stations.


Just joking, nothing personal

Another opinion:

"Comment from: Nurse Laurie, 45-54 Female (Caregiver) Published: March 19

You neglect to mention the two most prevalent sources of mercury exposure: "silver" amalgam dental fillings and the flu vaccine and others that contain mercury and aluminum as preservatives. Mercury ACCUMULATES insidiously until it begins to destroy your body and your brain. While European countries are protecting their citizens from these sources by BANNING certain vaccines and BANNING mercury in dental materials, the good ol' USA hides this info from us and ALLOWS it to slowly and surely disable and kill its citizens. I am one of those "lucky" people. I now know the truth even though it is too late for me I can tell others so they can avoid these exposures. The FDA, AMA, ADA and health dept are criminals for not telling us the truth."

.
And the radioactive hot spots in your body from Fukushima will not hurt you if you smile as per a Japanese official? After all, in Oregon people are only accumulating 5 hot radioactive spots per day, no problem!

Canada and the USA solved their problem by turning off the radiation monitors. That's politics!

Used to smash those for fun... Never knew the danger.

Now, being in the waste industry, my facility processes those bulbs by the thousands. I can't even calculate an accurate piece count, but the tonnage has exceeded a million. I've since climbed the corporate ladder some and do little handling, but I am still manage on the operations side so I am still somewhat hands on. It's not cheap to clean up. Even a small release in a workplace can cost tens of thousands of dollars to clean up.

Do you think I should stop chewing on old thermometers and maybe switch to pencils or something?

Us kids used to play with the mercury blobs that came out of a broken thermometer. Let it roll around on the table and pushed it around. Yikes!

Mercury is one reason I don't get flu vaccines.

Interesting about the autistic and mercury. Sounds reasonable that many babies/children become autistic just after getting all those vaccines.

PUH LEASE!!!! There is no mercury in single dose vaccine, none, zip zilch. The multidose vials we give our staff have traces of a type of mercury that is not harmful and rapidly dissipates. Go check your info.
You are drinking and inhaling and eating more mercury than will ever be in the flu shot. Period. Why do children with no vaccines get autism?
