驚!美國一女子擦面霜中毒,陷入昏迷(雙語)

  A Sacramento woman went to the emergency room in July with numbness in herhands and feet, slurred speech and trouble walking.

  七月份,薩克拉門托的一名女子因手腳發麻、口齒不清且走路困難而去了急診室.

  The 47-year-old mother of five wasn't having a stroke or heart attack. Shewas suffering from mercury poisoning from a tainted anti-wrinkle cream importedfrom Mexico, KCRA-TV reported.

  這名47歲有5個孩子的母親并沒有中風或心臟病發作.據KCRA-TV報道,她因使用了從墨西哥進口的被污染的抗皺面霜而汞中毒.

  She has been in the hospital since then, according to her son, who toldKCRA he wished to remain unidentified. His mother, who also hasn't beenidentified, was initially able to respond to verbal commands before she enteredher semi-comatose state.

  從那時起她就一直在醫院里,她的兒子告訴KCRA,但他表示不希望表明身份,而他母親的身份也未被證實.在她進入半昏迷狀態之前,她最初還能對口頭指令做出反應.

  Olivia Kasirye, the public health officer for the Sacramento CountyDepartment of Health Services, told CBS Sacramento that the woman's creamcontained methylmercury, a very toxic type of mercury.<紐約時報中英文網 http://www.uydujn.live/>

  薩克拉門托縣衛生服務部門公共衛生官員奧利維亞·卡西爾耶告訴哥倫比亞廣播公司薩克拉門托分公司,這位女士的面霜中含有甲基汞,這是一種毒性很高的汞.

  This is the first time a methylmercury poisoning from face cream hasoccurred in the United States, the department said in a statement.

  該部門在一份聲明中表示,這是美國首次出現由面霜引起的甲基汞中毒.

  Kasirye is urging the public to immediately discontinue use of similar skincreams imported from Mexico because of how dangerous methylmercury is for adultsand children.

  卡希爾耶敦促公眾立即停止使用從墨西哥進口的類似護膚霜,因為甲基汞對成人和兒童都是非常危險的.

  "We don't know whether this was an intentional change or whether there wasa mistake in the person who was adding the mercury," she said, telling thestation that there's an informal network of suppliers who bring the altered skincreams into the country.

  "我們不知道這是故意更換的,還是添加汞的人犯了錯,"她說道.她告訴電視臺,有一個非正式的供應商網絡把被改動的護膚霜帶入了美國.

  The most common way that people are exposed to methylmercury is througheating fish and shellfish that contain the toxin, according to the EnvironmentalProtection Agency.

  美國環境保護局表示,人們接觸甲基汞最常見的方式是食用含有這種毒素的魚類和貝類.

  Skin exposure to methylmercury can affect the central and peripheralsystems, with symptoms including tremors, memory loss and cognitive and motordysfunction, according to the World Health Organization.

  世界衛生組織稱,皮膚接觸到甲基汞會影響中樞和外周系統,引起震顫、記憶喪失、認知和運動功能障礙等癥狀.

  The average amount of mercury in blood is up to about 5 micrograms perliter as a result of mercury that is likely to be in someone's diet, accordingto the New York State Department of Health. The woman had 2,630 micrograms perliter in her blood, according to KCRA.

  紐約州衛生部門表示,由于人們飲食中可能含有汞,所以血液中汞的平均含量可達每升5微克,而據KCRA報道,這名女子血液中的汞含量為每升2630微克.
