Blood and Hair Mercury Levels in Young Children and Women of Childbearing Age
Abstract: Presents preliminary estimates of blood and hair mercury levels in US women and children; findings suggest that approximately 10 percent of women have mercury levels within one tenth (ppm) of potentially hazardous levels.

Initial Risk-Based Prioritization of Mercury in Certain Products [PDF]
Abstract: This risk-based analysis is based on analysis done by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the environmental fate, hazard, and exposure of mercury and its environmental transformation product methylmercury; the use of elemental mercury in certain products; and substitutes for these uses of elemental mercury.

Mercury Study Report to Congress, Volume 4, An Assessment of Exposure to Mercury in the United States [PDF]
Abstract: Using deposition values obtained from Volume III, this assessment addresses the exposures that result from selected, major anthropogenic combustion and manufacturing sources. Estimates current exposures to the general US population that result from Hg concentrations in freshwater and marine fish.

Mercury Study Report to Congress, Volume 5 Chapters 5 & 6, Interactions & Hazard Identification and Dose-Response Assessment [PDF]
Abstract: Chapter 5 focuses exclusively on the interaction of selenium with mercury for selenium has been shown to protect against developmental toxicity of methylmercury in mice and protects against oxidative damage by free radicals. Chapter 6 focuses of hazard identification and dose-response.

Mercury Study Report to Congress, Volume 6 Chapters 4 & 5, Effects of Mercury on Avian and Mammalian Wildlife & Assessment of the Risk Posed by Airborne Mercury Emissions to Piscivorous Avian and Mammalian Wildlife [PDF]
Abstract: Chapter 4 provides a summary of the toxicity of methylmercury to vertebrate systems. Presents guidance on the selection of appropriate toxicological endpoints and reviews toxicological studies on avian/mammalian wildlife. Chapter 5 is a summary of ecological risk assessment methods which are applicable to airborne mercury emissions. Different evaluation methods are used for different regions of the United States.

Mercury Study Report to Congress, Volume 7 Chapter 6, Integrative Analysis for Methylmercury [PDF]
Abstract: In this chapter findings from the exposure analyses are integrated with those from the dose-response assessments for both humans and wildlife. This integration is done only for methylmercury, as the exposure assessment indicates this is the form to which the greatest exposure is likely.
