Mercury Toxicity / Poisoning Physiological
The organic form is readily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract (90-100%);
lesser but still significant amounts of inorganic mercury are absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract (7-15%).
Organic mercury has a half-life of 2 months & binds to enzymes, proteins, and glutathione. MAO, caralase,
P-450, and mitochondrial functions are affected. Accumulates also in the liver and kidneys.
Symptoms of Excessive Mercury Toxicity / Poisoning Exposure:
Headache, fine tremor, increased salivation, excitability, hypertension, skin
rash, poor mental concentration, metallic taste. Target organs are the brain and kidneys.
