Mercury spills occur across the country, sometimes as a result of children finding mercury and handling it. Mercury contamination is a serious health risk. This video was produced by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and the Environmental Protection Agency specifically for children to strongly communicate that children should never touch mercury.
To those of us in the know... this video is another glaring example of ignoring dental amalgam as the main contributor of mercury exposure for roughly 120 million Americans.

View this photo gallery if you want to see what every dentist office in the country (who places or removes amalgam) would look like if we applied the same stringent regulations to them as evveryone else when dealing with elemental mercury.
