    Slide Notes:

    One thing that has not been highlighted enough is the fact that the mercury exposures from vaccines are in addition to background exposures to methylmercury from fish consumption.

    This chart is from the EPA report to congress and shows ranges of fish consumption in different populations within the United States. Most groups have low to moderate fish exposure, but there is great variability and there are numerous populations with very high levels of fish consumption in this country.
