Mercury Health Assessment: A Bigger Threat then Global Warming?
Course ID: ETOX-510
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

Science-based evidence suggests that mercury pollution may be an even greater threat to ecosystems and human survival than global warming. This course will address this claim by examining the environmental fate of mercury from both historical and current perspectives. Topics will include a review of mercury's human uses and the consequences we now face as a society; the most current, peer-reviewed mercury toxicity models; and the ways in which environmental mercury exposure coupled with factors like nutritional deficiencies create metabolic disruptions that adversely affect learning in children. Lastly, current mercury use and pollution policies of different countries will be analyzed to determine the need for global consensus as we move forward.
