in green earth

start with self and earth, and work your way out from there. have a little strontium with your fish, tastes better than tartar sauce: have a little pcb slathered with mercury on your fish too: Mercury in the environment comes from natural sources and from pollution. The largest sources of pollution have been from decades of burning fossil fuel (like coal) and waste. Mercury builds up in the tissue or muscle of the fish (part that we eat). It can also build up in our tissues when we eat fish contaminated with mercury. The danger is only in eating the fish, which means you can still enjoy water activities like swimming, boating, and other recreational activities. Our risk from mercury depends on how much and how often we eat certain types of fish. Mercury in fish is an issue for the whole nation, not just South Carolina.
