Sorry, mercury is probably not the most dangerous non-radioactive element but it is certainly dangerous.
And, I am learning about cadmium and it appears to be similar to mercury, although not as toxic. Cd even forms mercuric cadmium compounds.
I was reading where cadmium is taken into the body via smoking of cigarettes. So like mercury, cadmium is commonly found in human bodies.
Cadmium is often found in batteries and when they are thrown in trash landfills they likely leak out and get into the water supply.
