In "Adverse Effects of Methylmercury: Environmental Health Research Implications," Grandjean et al. (2010) reviewed the scientific discoveries of health risks resulting from methylmercury exposure, including the history of the Minamata disease incident. Although their title states "research implications," the authors failed to convey some important caveats from the incident.
