Human health implications from exposure to mercury and PCBs in the Arctic / Pál Weihe, Philippe Grandjean.

Title: Human health implications from exposure to mercury and PCBs in the Arctic / Pál Weihe, Philippe Grandjean.
Author(s): Weihe, Pál.
Grandjean, Philippe.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: Brussels: European Commission
In: Polar environment and climate : the challenges. Conference proceedings : international symposium, Brussels 5-6 March 2007 : European research in the context of the International Polar Year. (2007.),
Abstract: Study of industrial pollutants, particularly methylmercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), in traditional Faroese diet of pilot whale meat, and subsequent effects on child development. Three studies (1986-1987, 1994 and 1998-2000) all show that prenatal exposure to methylmercury and PCBs have perpetual negative effect on memory, attention, language and other mental functions in developing child.
