The health impact of chemicals in the environment is constantly increasing. There is a significant associated rise in neurological, autoimmune and cancer diseases. Male fertility decreases dramatically. However, when patients visit the doctor, hardly any examinations are carried out for possible chemical exposures.
We bring researchers and practitioners in the fields of metal biology, medicine and medical geology together to showcase the recent developments and address global challenges we face today within the field of metal toxicity.
Our mission is to advocate and support the adoption and implementation of a legally binding instrument which contains mandatory obligations to eliminate where feasible, and otherwise minimize, the global supply and trade of mercury, the global demand for mercury, anthropogenic releases of mercury to the environment, and human and wildlife exposure to mercury.
