So as far as Iíve been able to gather, Andy asserts that inorganic mercury, (Hg++) cannot be methylated within the body.
The only source of methylmercury is minor amounts methylated by gut bacteria, seafood, and inhalation.
He also makes it clear that if we were able to methylate mercury, it wouldnt be an issue in the first place, as we would excrete it.
He also warns against NAC, as it will mobilize mercury around the body but never excrete it due to a weak bond.
Just curious what you guys think of the following study.
On NAC and methylmercury elimination.
