Abstract: The Minamata Convention on mercury is a global treaty, signed by the UK and over one hundred countries on October 2013 with the intention of protecting human health and the environment from the adverse effects of mercury, for example, by limiting the use of mercury from all sources, including LED light bulbs, fluorescent tubes, vaccines, fertilizers, thermometers and, of course, dental amalgam.
