Recent Reports Regarding Mercury and High Fructose Corn Syrup Flawed and Misleading
Date:1/30/2009

report fails to recognize basic scientific facts regarding mercury; ignores common dietary sources of mercury, an element that is widely present in our environment at low concentrations; and makes improper assumptions regarding the source of the mercury measured in various branded food products.

    -- More than two-thirds of the samples analyzed by IATP had no detectable
       level of mercury at all. In the remaining sample, most of these were at
       or near the limit of detection. The average concentration for the 17
       samples with detectable levels was only 128 parts per trillion (ppt).
       EPA sets limits for mercury in drinking water at two parts per billion.
    -- It is well known that small amounts of mercury are broadly present in
       our environment. For example, Health Canada reported in 2003 that the
       concentrations of total mercury in steak ranged from 420 to 1,800 parts
       per trillion (ppt); fresh pork contained 1,100 to 1,500 ppt; organ
       meats (liver and kidney) contained over 2,100 ppt; and lamb contained
       290 to 2,300 ppt of total mercury.  (Dabeka et al, 2003)  For the sake
       of reference, one part per trillion is equal to one drop of water
       spread out into 26 Olympic-size swimming pools.  (Washington Suburban
       Sanitary Commission, 2009)
    -- That same study by Health Canada looked at mercury in seafood, finding
       amounts that ranged from 40,000 ppt in fresh or frozen marine fish to
       148,000 ppt in canned fish.  Other foods, such as canned mushrooms, had
       5,100 to 16,000 ppt total mercury, grapes had 180 to 590 ppt,
       blueberries 210 to 640 ppt, rice 570 to 1,800 ppt, raisins upwards of
       700 ppt, and shelled seeds up to 1,000 parts per trillion (ppt).
    -- The levels noted above are substantially greater than those found by
       Wallinga and colleagues in their reports.  (Dabeka et al, 2003)  Other
       studies by other
