Health-benefit understanding of mercury-selenium interactions from fish to human

Project description

Insight into mercury toxicity from fish

Mercury is one of the top ten chemicals of major public health concern as identified by the WHO. With fish and seafood being the principal human exposure sources to mercury, the effects of mercury on humans warrant further investigation. The EU-funded MERFISH project will employ novel analytical approaches to study the impact of mercury on proteins and estimate the detoxification role of selenium, offering insight into human health risks and benefits. Results will help formulate important guidelines for vulnerable populations such as pregnant women and young children on avoiding certain fish species with high mercury content.
