What dangers are associated with high concentrations of mercury in the body?
There are different levels of mercury poisoning, acute and chronic. Sudden exposure to high levels will cause breathing problems, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, etc. Chronic, exposure over time, causes nerve damage, (tremors,convulsions,) personality disorder, (anger, depression,) organ failure, (kidney infection, pulmonary edema) and many other physical/mental problems. Children are especially at risk since they are developing. If exposure is suspected the person should seek medical treatment immediately.
Mercury has a half life of several months in the body, assuming no treatment. One normally experiences a very trace absorption of mercury from food and industrial sources, and this lengthy removal time will not create any health issues for normal individuals- assuming mercury exposure is not in abnormally high concentrations. If one suspects mercury poisoning, seek medical attention immediately. Poisoning from mercury is a potentially life threatening condition that needs to be addressed medically with prescription chelating agents, not by homeopathic "detoxification" remedies. A simple follicle or blood test can be used to evaluate mercury levels and confirm a poisoning diagnosis.
Underweight is generally considered a disease associated with malnutrition. The dangers of being underweight can be that since the body does not have enough fuel to burn from food that it begins to 'digest itself' by using muscle tissue for food instead, Weakness and fatigue are the common problems associated with being underweight.
The exact answer depends on how the mercury is absorbed into the body as certain forms accumulate better within the body then others. Generally speaking, mercury is slowly removed from the body (typically taking several months), meaning that continued exposure would lead to the accumulation of mercury in the body.
Fluoride doesn't do anything on the outside of the body, unless in contact with with high concentrations of many fluoride salts, this can be dangerous. When intoxicated, it is possible to get Fluoride Poisoning. Fluoride also can be dangerous, in high concentrations, when in contact with the eye. ~HellsBaran
What is the amount of energy associated with the movement of the atoms and molecules in a body of matter?
The relative concentrations of the electrolytes in the blood are similar to the ocean. One could presume that the function of those electrolytes in to internalize in one's body the same environment from which we sprang.

This link answers a lot of questions about Mercury. It includes sources of exposure and how long it takes to leave the body. For general information: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/phs46.html For specific toxicology: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/tp46.html It appears that most Mercury from fish will leave your body over months, if exposure is stopped. However, some Methylmercury (the kind from fish) can be converted by your body to inorganic mercury. Inorganic mercury in your brain is reported not stay there a…
