A report in Phys.org says, "Excess mercury in atmosphere found to be coming from the world's oceans."
"Higher-than-normal levels of mercury in the body can lead to a host of ailments, including anxiety, irritability and depression. Prior research has shown that the most common form of mercury poisoning comes from eating seafood. In this new effort, the researchers looked at the entire global flow of mercury to learn more about where it exists and in what quantities."
