100 Percent of Fish in U.S. Streams Found Contaminated with Mercury ( 17:29:24 FriMar 5 2010 )

"In a new study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), every single fish tested from 291 freshwater streams across the United States was found to be contaminated with mercury.

The pollutant enters the environment almost wholly as atmospheric emissions from industrial processes."

Dredgers could get most of this mercury out with no charge to the government if people would just leave us alone let us improve the environment.

All I have is the news article. A link is included above.
I just read the news article. Maybe someone else can find the complete study. I don't know how.

Thank you Greg for posting the link to the PDF file on the study, this is going to an interesting read considering the news hype and the sky is falling senario presented in the same.
