Transparency Market Research has published a new report titled, ‘Global Mercury Poisoning Treatment Market ’. According to the report, the global mercury poisoning treatment market was valued at US$ 32 Mn in 2019 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of ~5% from 2020 to 2030. Mercury poisoning is caused due to consumption of mercury. Most of the mercury toxicity comes from the environment. The most common cause of mercury poisoning is consumption of too much methylmercury or organic mercury, which is linked to eating seafood. Mercury itself is naturally occurring, but the amount in the environment has increased due to industrialization, coal combustion, and mining. Mercury could have toxic effects on the nervous, digestive, and immune systems, and on lungs, kidneys, skin, and eyes.
According to the WHO, mercury is considered one of the top ten chemicals or groups of chemicals of major public health concern. Methylmercury is quite different from ethylmercury. Ethylmercury is used as a preservative in some vaccines and does not present a health risk. Human activity is the leading cause of mercury release, particularly coal-fired power stations and residential coal burning for heating & cooking, industrial processes, waste incinerators, and mining for mercury, gold, and other metals. Inhalation of mercury vapor could have harmful effects on the nervous, digestive, and immune systems, lungs, and kidneys, and could be fatal.
