Janelle Monae On being diagnosed with Acute Mercury Poisoning | Homecoming 2

Thriller, Suspense and a cinematic homage to occult horror, Amazon Prime video returns with Season 2 of Homecoming; starring Janelle Monae.

Per usual Monae delivers an amazing performance, We don’t know who she is and neither does she!

During the virtual premiere Monae opens up about her Pre-production Pescatarian diet that led to her being diagnosed with acute mercury poisoning

“Get your levels checked ..this is not what you want

In the video, Her cast-mates slightly shook as they had no idea she was suffering from disorientation amongst other symptoms while bringing her levels back to normal while shooting.

According to healthline.com, Mercury poisoning refers to a toxicity from mercury consumption. The most common cause of mercury poisoning is from consuming too much methylmercury or organic mercury, which is linked to eating seafood.

A pescatarian diet which is similar to a vegetarian diet with the allotment of seafood did just that

“I was very concerned for my friends”

Moderator of the premiere, Comedian Lily Singh confirms by referring back to a text Monae sent her to spread awareness of monitoring levels.

Mercury poisoning symptoms in adults

Adults with advanced mercury poisoning might experience:

  • hearing and speech difficulties
  • lack of coordination
  • muscle weakness
  • nerve loss in hands and face
  • trouble walking
  • vision changes

In the case of Monae playing a disoriented character who wakes up in a canoe without any recollection of who or why she is where she is, Monae admits feeling an eerie parallel to her character due to the challenges she experienced in her personal life.
