What makes mercury so dangerous?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mercury is dangerous because it affects the central nervous system, injures the kidneys, and produces severe brain damage. Mercury vapors also cause serious respiratory system disorders, including pneumonitis. The body is unable to get rid of heavy metals such as mercury so the damage is usually irreversible. Mercury is still used in many common household items such as fluorescent light bulbs, certain latex paints, and old thermometers.
