What makes mercury dangerous?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mercury, one of the few metals that stay liquid at room temperature, is actually a neurotoxin. It easily breaks apart into small beads or attaches to particles to form “mercury dust”, both of which can readily enter a person’s system. Mercury poisoning can harm the central nervous system, cause respiratory disorders, and damage the kidneys. It can also cause serious and permanent brain damage, and can severely affect the cognitive development of children.
