Mercury is a metal that is liquid at room temperature. It is highly volatile and very toxic. Mercury is used in the treatment of slime molds, treatment of plant diseases and manufacturing of paper. Inhalation of mercury vapor and ingestion of its compounds can cause brain damage, madness, loss of vision, dizziness, lung damage and death. Its vapor toxicity is so high that it needs to be covered with toluene. The bacteria in the atmosphere plays a role in increasing its toxicity by converting it to a very h
