In Canada, the latest health scare has been blamed on the toxic mercury in some of our most popular health products.
The fallout from this latest scandal is still being felt, with thousands of people taking the plunge on new or discounted health plans.
But how many of them are doing it right?
Here’s what you need to know about mercury poisoning, mercury products and the latest news in health care.
Health Canada’s warning About a quarter of Canadians are not taking their mercury pills because of the new federal warnings.
But they’re not the only ones who are taking them.
The Canadian Association of Physicians and Surgeons said there are about 1.6 million doctors in the country and another 1.4 million pharmacists, which is around 15 per cent of the country’s population.
The new government has called for a national action plan to prevent the spread of mercury in Canada, with an aim to limit the number of cases in the coming years.
What’s in the new rules?
The new government said in a statement that it wants to help protect Canadians from the health risks associated with mercury, including by making it harder for the government to regulate or require manufacturers to label mercury-containing products.
It also wants to reduce the risk of exposure to mercury from food, water and other sources.
As the government makes these changes, the federal government will also work with health care providers to set clear guidelines for mercury use, with a goal of making mercury-free foods, beverages and personal care products safe to consume.
And, if you’re buying a mercury-heavy product from a store or pharmacy, you can choose from a variety of different labels that will help you keep track of what’s in your product and ensure you’re getting what you pay for.
How can I take my pills?
It’s not a good idea to take your pills by mouth unless you’ve tested for mercury poisoning.
In addition, you’ll need to buy a mercury warning sticker on your prescription pad or in the health care information leaflet you’re receiving.
This sticker will help prevent people from filling out a false mercury poisoning report, and it may also help you stay up to date on your mercury exposure.
