Founded in 2005 by the European Environmental Bureau and the Mercury Policy Project, the Zero Mercury Working Group (ZMWG) is an international coalition of nearly 100 non-governmental organizations that advocate for human health and the environment.With the goal of reducing mercury in the global environment to a minimum, ZMWG strives to eliminate the supply, demand, and emissions of mercury from all anthropogenic sources. In advance of the INC5 session in Geneva, ZMWG released a report last month urging that the acceptable limits of dietary exposure to mercury be lowered based on the findings of recent epidemiological research, while encouraging the consumption of seafood species that are known to be low in mercury: An Overview of Epidemiological Evidence on the Effects of Methylmercury on Brain Development, and A Rationale for a Lower Definition of Tolerable Exposure.
