Biodisponibilité du mercure pour les poissons et l’homme : surévaluée ? Volume 16, issue 6, November-December 2017



This news is based on the following article: Bradley M, Barst B, Basu N. A review of mercury bioavailability in humans and fish. Int J Environ Res Public Health 2017; 14: 169. doi: 10.3390/ijerph14020169


Although the toxicity of mercury undoubtedly requires protective measures, the authors of this study recommend a more nuanced approach when warning of the risks of eating fish, and call for a more thorough review and fuller knowledge of the bioavailability of this contaminant.
