  Xinbin Feng, Ping Li, Guangle Qiu, et.al., Environ.Sci.Technol. 2008, 42, 326-332
   The toxicity of methylmercury (Me-Hg) has caused widespread public human concern as a result of several widely publicized disasters. Me_Hg is highly toxic, and the nervous system is its principal target tissue for humans. .... From our studies we can conclude that the main human exposure to Me-Hg via food consumption is not restriced to fish, but in some cases in mining areas of China to frequent rice meals.
