Mercury is a naturally occurring metal found in the environment. It's a liquid at room temperature and easily evaporates into the atmosphere where we can breathe it in. Mercury is among a group of pollutants called persistent bio-accumulative toxins, or PBTs. These toxins persist in the environment and don't break down or go away.
