Food Products

Due to the nature of mercury, it is easily absorbed into the human body, whether it is from the water we drink, the air we breathe, and even the food we eat. Food products are targeted for mercury content since it is directly ingested and absorbed into our bodies. The presence of mercury can be identified in an individual's hair, urine, blood, and even fingernails. Measurement of the body's mercury content can aid in the investigation of mercury on human health.
