Mercury is a type of toxic metal that comes in different forms within the environment. Small amounts of mercury are present in everyday foods and products, which may not affect your health. Too much mercury, however, can be poisonous when consumed. The most common cause of mercury poisoning is from consuming too much organic mercury, which is linked to eating seafood.
The amounts of mercury in the environment have been on the rise from industrialization. This industrial runoff makes its way into soil and water, and eventually to animals like fish. Children and unborn babies are the most vulnerable to the effects of mercury poisoning.
So what does Donald Trump do? This showed up on my newsfeed this morning.
Why? Because he’s the president, and he believes that, as president, he has total authority to do anything he wants. And what he apparently wants to do is poison the most vulnerable citizens of the country — the children.
And because he’s a despicable human being who thinks he’s the king.
