1. Sunyer J, et al. (2008). The aim of the present study is to assess the association between Hexachlorobenzene and other organochlorines compounds, and urinary porphyrin excretion during childhood, at an age with a more valid assessment of porphyrins than at birth, and without the confounding effect of other determinants occurring at adulthood.

8. Björkman L, et al. (2007). In a fish-eating population, intake of MeHg via the diet has a marked impact on the MeHg concentration in the brain, while exposure to dental amalgam restorations increases the I-Hg concentrations in the brain.

9. Ser PH, et al. (2017). We examined the quantitative relationship between mercury exposure and plasma selenium-containing proteins among a Japanese population with a high intake of methylmercury from the consumption of whales and fish; our observations suggest that the increase in plasma selenium in the high-mercury group might be associated with an increase in selenoprotein P. diet | sex Mercury | Methylmercury Compounds | Selenium Study subjects Japan blood | hair | plasma Mercury | Selenium | SELENOP Details
10. Wells EM, et al. (2016). Tracking Health Related to Environmental Exposures (THREE) Study We identified a statistically significant decrease in ponderal index associated with higher cord blood methylmercury concentration among newborns in models controlling for selenium, omega-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids, and inorganic mercury.

12. Booth S, et al. (2005). We modeled the flow of methyl mercury, a toxic global pollutant, in the Faroe Islands marine ecosystem and compared average human methyl mercury exposure from consumption of pilot whale meat and fish (cod, Gadus morhua) with current tolerable weekly intake (TWI) levels.

13. Trasande L, et al. (2010). Despite a moderate level of contamination in recent sediments and suspended particulate matter, carp in Lake Chapala contain sufficient mercury concentrations to suggest that it contributes significantly to body burden in this population. diet Methylmercury Compounds Study subjects Mexico hair Methylmercury Compounds Details
14. Foran JA, et al. (2010). We report here the results of a probabilistic analysis of exposure to methyl mercury among tribal members who consume walleye. The model predicts that the potential for greatest exposures occur among women of child-bearing age and children who consume large walleye from lakes that contain heavily contaminated (MeHg concentration >0.5 milligrams per kilogram) fish. diet Methylmercury Compounds United States walleye Methylmercury Compounds Details
15. Nielsen AB, et al. (2012). The main finding of this cross-sectional study of the relationship between blood mercury and blood pressure among 1,861 adult Inuit men and women (30-69 years) in Greenland was that increasing blood mercury concentrations were associated with decreasing diastolic blood pressure among men. sex Methylmercury Compounds Study subjects Greenland blood Mercury Details Hypertension | regulation of blood pressure

17. Maruyama K, et al. (2012). The study suggests the possibility that exposure to methyl mercury at levels below the current WHO limits (hair level of 50 micrograms per gram) could cause neurologic signs, in particular, sensory disturbance.

18. Thapa DS, et al. (2014). The risk of methylmercury exposure through consumption of fish from Lake Phewa (Nepal) was estimated in different categories of people; the minimum intake was found in visitors, whereas the hotel owners had the maximum intake; some individuals exceeded established tolerable weekly intake guidelines. diet Methylmercury Compounds Study subjects Nepal|United States Methylmercury Compounds Details
19. Castaño A, et al. (2015). DEMOnstration of a study to COordinate and Perform Human biomonitoring on a European Scale (DEMOCOPHES) We analyzed mercury in hair in mother-child pairs from 17 European countries using a hierarchical clustering of diet patterns: there is a strong correlation in hair mercury concentration between the mother and child, there are significant differences in mercury exposure across the European Union, and exposure is highly correlated with consumption of fish and marine products. diet Methylmercury Compounds Children | Mothers Belgium|Cyprus|
