Green Tip {Tuesday}

If you are concerned about your mercury exposure (especially if you are trying to conceive) you can measure how much mercury you have been exposed to with a hair sampling kit. Please note that they are not as reliable as a blood test administered by a doctor. Avoiding fish with high levels of mercury can make a difference in a relatively short period of time because the half life of methyl mercury is just about 60 to 90 days.

Note: Sorry I'm a day late, I scheduled the wrong date. duh.

Note: Molly, after the great thermometer debacle of '09, you may want to consider picking one of these bad boys up. just sayin'.
