The Mercury Hair Testing program has ended


We regret that we are no longer able to offer kits for testing mercury levels in hair. Our partner laboratory will be closing shortly.

If you are interested in being tested, we recommend that you contact your primary physician or your state health department for further information.

This project has provided thousands with information about their mercury levels. It has shown the dangerous level of mercury in our environment, and highlighted the ongoing dangers from the largest emitter of mercury pollution - coal-fired power plants. It is possible to reduce mercury emissions from these plants by 90 percent today, but several administrations have stalled reductions for over a decade. More than 10,000 concerned citizens were tested and over 500,000 people contacted the Bush administration asking that mercury standards be strengthened.

Find out the results of our nationwide study.

If you have placed an order but have not received your test kit, please contact Supporter Care at info@wdc.greenpeace.org or by phone at 1-800-326-0959, Mon - Fri, 9:30am - 5pm EST.
