Mercury has been found in some infant vaccines, silver dental fillings as well as contaminated fish. Exposure to mercury leads to the disease we know as mercury poisoning, which can produce toxic effects in high enough doses.
Toxic effects include damage to the brain, kidney, and lungs and symptoms typically include sensory impairment (vision, hearing, speech), disturbed sensation and a lack of coordination. Mercury is a carcinogenic and is often partly responsible for chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic candida infections and many autoimmune disease.
Many Tampa Bay residents have had exposure to high levels of mercury and have been helped by visiting LifeWorks. We can help you too, so call our Clearwater clinic for an appointment at (727) 466-6789.
