PMID:  10735519     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Fecal excretion of methyl mercury was confirmed in four Japanese male subjects. Perhaps the methyl mercury detected in feces is dependent on (a) the unabsorbed methyl mercury in diet, (b) exfoliation of intestinal cells, (c) hepatic bile, and (d) intestinal methylation of inorganic mercury. The calculated amounts of methyl mercury excreted daily in feces were similar to those found in urine.
