Global Consensus on Mercury: Scientists Defend Science Journalists
Date:2/4/2008

ed below:

-- About two thirds of the mercury in our environment is derived from

human activities

-- Mercury is highly toxic, biomagnifies in the aquatic food web and

places humans at risk if they consume high levels of fish that are high

on the food chain.

-- In many populations there is evidence that current levels of exposure

are sufficient to affect several physiological systems and as a result

current mercury exposure levels constitute an important public health

problem.

-- Methylmercury affects nervous system development and there is

sufficient evidence to warrant the prudent selection of fish in the

diet, specifically for pregnant women and children.

-- Long-lasting effects of fetal methylmercury exposure have been

documented in children throughout the world.

Rather than following the selective science approach, and chasing down one or two studies that support a particular viewpoint, we recommend anyone who is truly interested should benefit from the full weight of the evidence by reading the scientific consensus in the Conference Declaration which is available here:
