    About This Project

    A state of emergency has been declared in Peru due to levels of mercury (Hg) exposure. Hg toxicity has a plethora of devastating neurological and cognitive effects that can ravage vulnerable communities, such as the indigenous communities in the Peruvian Amazon. 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.
