You might be wondering what causes mercury to form in our environment. It is usually exposed to the air, water, and surroundings through natural processes. The most common method of mercury contamination is the inhalation of mercury gas during a mercury spill, especially when workers are present or stored in contaminated areas. When ingested, the toxic metal gets into the bloodstream and remains in the body, where it can provoke symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, and headaches. Some patients experience neurological disorders and permanent nerve damage due to mercury poisoning.
Commonly found in items that are manufactured using mercury-based ingredients, such as mercury in batteries and electric motor parts, rubber gloves, and hair combs, our very popular hairstyling supplies contain mercury. The mercury in smoke cartridges from tobacco cigarettes also contains this metal. One type of industrial use of mercury is in the manufacturing of batteries, which may contain significant levels of mercury. Other uses include dental care products, aquarium maintenance equipment, dry cleaning, metal polishing, and paintball marker pens. These products, when in contact with other metals, create a potential threat to human health.
Mercury has been used for thousands of years to treat fungal infections, including molds and candida. Modern man still applies mercury-based solutions to infection and skin disorders. While the use of mercury is widely accepted as safe, the growing demands for safer cosmetics products have put an end to the use of mercury. Your local pharmacist will help you find a test kit to test your exposure to mercury in cosmetics.
If you,re concerned about the potential exposure to arsenic in cosmetics, the same tests are available. The At-Home Mercury Test Kit includes an arsenic detector kit for testing your exposure to arsenic and a silver-testing kit. Both kits are portable and inexpensive. The most common reaction to exposure to arsenic is dermatitis, redness of the skin experienced after contact with the element. While At-Home Mercury Testing kits test both the presence and level of mercury in the air and body fluids, neither test is absolutely accurate.
Mercury and arsenic are often found together in cosmetics because mercury typically contains aluminum or copper components. Most people who develop a reaction to mercury usually develop one to cadmium, although patients can experience a variety of symptoms that include dermatitis, muscle weakness, headaches, vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, seizures, and abdominal pain.
