Mercury is a dangerous substance. Used in a variety of industrial devices, including float valves, mercury switches, mercury relays, and fluorescent lamps, as well as in many medical devices, mercury has been linked to a variety of neurological disorders. These disorders can be as minor as occasional tremors and sleep disturbances or as serious as violent muscle spasms, cognitive impairment and impaired pulmonary function.
