    About This Project

    A state of emergency has been declared in Madre de Dios, Peru due to high levels of mercury (Hg) exposure as a result of gold mining in the region. Hg toxicity has a plethora of devastating neurological and cognitive effects that can ravage vulnerable communities. The goal of this project is to reduce Hg levels in mothers and children through education and the construction of high antioxidant food baskets of locally acquired foods.
