Model the Lead Protocol for Mercury

December 15, 2010

The lead protocol is well established and includes product guidelines, child testing and public education mechanisms.  A very similar treatment should be implemented for mercury.  This requires a strong policy coalition including concerned parents, health care providers, fishermen, midwifes, nutritionists, schools and many others.

The Sierra Fund recommends that a state-wide or nation-wide health advocacy organization take this high priority program on.
