Mercury (II) Binding Activity of Vegetable and Fruit Juices: Identifying Potential Detoxifying Juice
Updated: May 22
Artisanal gold mining is known to cause high levels of mercury (Hg) contamination to human populations, due mainly to many miners burning gold amalgams without the use of safety equipment and/or mercury capture systems.
In Portovelo-Zaruma, Ecuador, there are more than 10,000 ASG miner's directly involved in artisanal mining. As mercury (Hg) vapour accumulates in the kidneys and brain, it is important to investigate potential agents that may be effective in helping to detoxify contaminated individuals.
