Mercury embolization

The xrays are those of a 25-year-old man who injected himself intravenously with 4cc of mercury to treat tinea cruris (jock itch).  The lateral view of the chest shows extensive emboli in the pulmonary vasculature and, interestingly, focal accumulations in the right atrium and right ventricle (arrow and asterisk).  He had systemic symptoms and signs of mercury intoxication and was treated for such.  Details at The New England Journal of Medicine.

    1. That's what Big Pharma wants you to believe. To push their overpriced poisonous drugs, they sit on healthy natural remedies like Hg IV.
