Getting mercury poisoning is most often caused by eating seafood, which is rich in methylmercury or organic mercury. FDA guidelines recommend that adults can occasionally eat fish with lower mercury levels in small amounts.

A study published in 2020 found that eating fish less than once a week had little effect on the health of study participants. The level of fetal mercury exposure, however, was dangerously high in participants who ate fish regularly.

A study by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that methylmercury poisons the central nervous system as well as the peripheral nervous system. Mercury vapor, when inhaled, can be harmful to the nervous, digestive, immune, and pulmonary systems as well as the kidneys and lungs.

The highest level of supportive care is required in cases of severe mercury poisoning, particularly if neurological symptoms are present. Seizures, tremors, and organ damage can be managed by hospitalization and treatment. By providing appropriate medical interventions and stabilizing the patient's condition, supportive care aims to improve the patient's health.
