The neurological hazards of mercury were first noticed
when women gave birth to severely impaired infants after
being exposure to high levels of mercury. The EPA notes it
is “clear that the developing nervous system of the fetus
may be more vulnerable to methylmercury than the adult
The toxic effects of mercury include autism, Alzheimer’s,
ALS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, other neurodevelopmental
problems, nephrotoxicity and cancer. A link

Mercury is bad for you because it causes mercury poisoning. You can get mercury poisoning through food (fish specifically), through the air (vaporized mercury), or in the water (mercury deposits in drinking water). Mercury attacks your brain, heart, lungs, and kidneys. Mood swings, decreased cognitive functions, insomnia, loss of peripheral vision and coordination, and headaches accompany symptoms that the mercury is attacking your brain. Your muscles start to ache or twitch as well. In some extreme cases, your kidneys and respiratory system can shut down.
