Exposure of the general population to toxic metals may come from the environment or home and can be acute or chronic. It may result from contaminated food, air, water, or dust; living near a hazardous waste site or manufacturing plant that releases metal contaminants; overexposure to metal-containing pesticides, paints, or cosmetics; or improper disposal or cleanup of toxic metal-containing items (such as a broken thermometer).
Exposure risks for specific metals include:
Lead-containing plumbing (lead pipes or plumbing solder; in 2007, it was estimated that less than 1% of the public water systems in the United States had lead levels above 5 µg/L) (ATSDR 2007b)
Lead-based paints (in buildings built before 1978; this is the predominant source for children) (EPA 2013)
Leaded gasoline (although banned in the United States in 1995 for automobiles, previous usage has widely dispersed it in the environment) (Miranda 2011)
Foods grown in lead-rich soil (ATSDR 2008a)
Eating fish or shellfish contaminated with methylmercury (the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] has set a maximum permissible level of 1 part of methylmercury in a million parts of seafood [1 ppm]) (ATSDR 2001). Ocean fish commonly high in mercury include shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish (Defilippis 2010). Levels of mercury above 1 ppm have also been found in predatory and bottom-dwelling freshwater fish (including bass, walleye, and pickerel) from mercury-contaminated waters (ATSDR 2001)
Breathing contaminated workplace air or skin contact during use in the workplace (certain medical and dental treatments as well as chemical or other industries that use mercury) (ATSDR 2000)
Release of mercury vapor from dental amalgam fillings (although the FDA deems amalgam fillings safe) (Bernhoft 2012; Jang 2011; Rusyniak 2010; FDA 2009)
Contact with elemental mercury from the following household devices: thermometers (the amount of elemental mercury from a broken thermometer spilled in a sm
The law requires property owners to remove hazards within a reasonable amount of time after they learn about them. For example, grocery store managers cannot clean up spills the instant that they happen, but would be liable if they let the spill sit sometimes for even less than half an hour. What is reasonable is ultimately up to a judge or jury. If the hazard, such as construction work, cannot be cleared, owners must warn heir visitors about it, or rope off the area where the hazard exists.

Today in the national headlines: An initial settlement was reached for the massive oil spill in San Francisco, plus do we really have the first RAY GUN?
Hi everyone and welcome to get the daily****. I'm Andrea Rene and I've got a look at some top national stories.
It was announced yesterday that the city of San Francisco will receive $2 million dollars for damage caused by a 54,000 gallon oil spill from last November. The 2 million is only the inital payment from Hudson Marine Managment Services and will help cover the cost of the crash of their 900 foot cargo ship, the Cosco Busan. The ship sideswiped the Bay Bridge and dumped thousands of gallons of oil into the water, devasting beaches and killing thousands of birds. No word yet on when the settlement will be finalized or for how much.
Last night on 60 minutes the Pentagon debuted one of its newest weapons, straight from a sci-fi series, its the RAY GUN. I know it sounds cool but apparently it feels pretty HOT. The gun blasts a 100,000 watt beam of light into anything in its path, but it doesn't kill, or even permanently injure anyone. Instead, volunteers who stood in from of the gun said it feels like scalding hot water is being thrown on you. Sounds painful to me! BUt when you step out of the beam, the pain is instantly gone. The Pentagon hopes to use this weapon for crowd control in Iraq and as a defense weapon on Embassy for riots like the one in Belgrade last week. But the problem is, the Defense department isn't really giving any funding to this new weapon, because, insiders say, it doesn't kill anything! But despite financial setbacks, developers are hoping to have it Iraq sometime soon. If you want to learn more about the ray gun head over to cbsnews****.
You just heard some top stories from get the daily****. I'm Andrea Rene reminding you to check back later in the week because I'll have all the details from Tuesday's primaries!
