And where does mercury come from? It's naturally in the rocks of the Canadian Shield. They don't say it here but you know the goal is to stop the use of coal.

This is not new info. The International Association for Great Lakes Research and other groups have studied this for many years. The majority of the contamination is in the water that people drink in this region.

Mercury contamination at these levels is not naturally occurring. It is directly traced to coal burning. It's too bad that moms and babies are the ones paying the price for our antiquated and inefficient energy systems.
