Thanks for the report. What a tragedy. Mercury pollution is such a crime, yes, a crime.

This doesn't surprise me, although it does sadden me. It also concerns me how much mercury humans may be ingesting through fish, air and water.

I think a lot of things are going to be found to be linked to this and other heavy metals.
