What do irritability, shyness, tremors, changes in vision or hearing, memory problems, depression, and numbness and tingling all have in common? They are all signs of mercury poisoning. If you have been using personal care products that work as skin lighteners or anti-aging treatments, you should check the product label. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reports that skin creams, beauty and antiseptic soaps, and lotions that contain mercury are being sold illegally in the United State. They are urging people to stop using the products immediately.
