Mercury thermometers are now increasingly being replaced because, mercury is toxic in nature. It harms living organisms and the environment. Disposal of mercury is also very difficult. On the other hand, digital thermometers are easy to use. There is no parallax error while observing the reading of a digital thermometer. Digital thermometers do require physical contact just like a mercury thermometer.
