What is candida?
Candida is known as a common overproduction of yeast in the body.
Where is Candida found in the body:

Mercury Toxicity causes Candida
If you have chronic yeast infections or candida, there could be a possibility of mercury (toxicity) poisoning. The rational behind this is that the body produces yeast in a bid to absorb mercury in the body thereby preventing it from entering the blood stream.
This sounds like a good way to protect the body from Mercury, however once the yeast cells has absorbed the mercury, they are unable to dispose of it.
