Mercury Depletes Glutathione Peroxidase-Toxic Mechanisms In Alzheimer’s Disease Risk

Mercury Depletes Glutathione Peroxidase-Toxic Mechanisms In Alzheimer’s Disease Risk

The research demonstrating the deleterious and toxic effects of mercury on brain function and structure in neurodegenerative disease processes is plentiful. Adding to the research literature, a May/2009 study demonstrated that methylmercury* induces neurotoxicity, by significantly inactivating one the brain’s primary antioxidant defense buffers, glutathione peroxidase (GPx).
