Abstract
A clinical attempt has been made to correlate duration of exposure and blood mercury (7439976) levels in men working with a variety of mercury compounds, predominantly organic. No statistically significant evidence was found that blood levels of mercury increase as a function of prolonged exposure. The absence of buildup in the blood does not necessarily rule out accumulation of mercury elsewhere in the body. The reported findings do not necessarily apply to all types of mercury exposure.
