What began with debilitating fatigue, grew to accompany insomnia, blurred vision, painful sinus headaches, extreme allergies (to everything), food intolerances, candida, never-ending chronic infections, exhaustion, a consistent feeling of being tired yet wired, and hypo-thyroid issues. Everything became incredibly overwhelming. Darkness clouded over me like a shadow of death; I became depressed, anxious, and frustrated. I had gone mad, and my life had fallen apart. I was living in a bubble, and a normal existence seemed like an impossible dream.
It is odd and unsettling that an organization, which spends millions of dollars on Alzheimer's research has never spent a dime looking at one of the most potent neurotoxins known to man. Mercury dental fillings are implanted in over 120 million Americans mouths and these fillings release mercury vapor 24 / 7 in doses that exceed government levels of safety. The Alzheimer's Association not only ignores mercury as a causal factor in Alzheimer's disease (AD), but they also promote the link as a "myth". Read on to understand how the three outdated references the Alzheimer's Assocaition uses as the basis for their assertion are not worthy of such prominence and promotion.
Over the last several decades a wide variety of studies have linked mercury exposure to various visual impairments, most notably color vision loss. Unfortunately the majority of these studies have been done overseas and mercury toxicity is not tested for when being evaluated for color vision loss.
Most people have metal or amalgam fillings in their mouth and each filling is made from 50% mercury. Science has shown that everytime we chew, brush, or grind our teeth, some of the mercury is released as a vapor and we inhale it. Panorama has uncovered a growing body of scientific evidence which shows ominous links between the mercury from our fillings and serious illnesses. We also reveal an uncomfortable background of complacency and ignorance within the British Dental establishment which is helping mask the truth about the dangers of the poison in your mouth.
It is a wide spread misconception that the World Health Organization, WHO, has declared mercury fillings safe. They have not. The source of this misinformation seems to be a policy statement made by the FDI World Dental Federation with the title WHO Consensus Statement on Dental Amalgam, This policy statement has incorrectly and extensively been used by dental organizations to convince politicians and other decision makers that the WHO has declared mercury fillings safe.

This is the account of how my wife was affected by mercury poisoning: It started with symptoms ranging from unexplained anxiety, palpitations, struggling to breathe, light headedness and in the final stages of her illness, pins and needless over her body. Her arms and legs became very weak and she would frequently feel as if she were going to pass out.
Dentists all over the world remove millions of amalgam fillings every day, with no regard for the possible mercury exposure that can result from grinding them out. Quite often, a new amalgam filling goes back in place of the old one. The dental establishment claims amalgam emits little or no mercury, but then turns blames the mercury–free dentists for “unnecessarily exposing patients to excess mercury” when removing amalgams electively.

The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology presents the backstory and lead up to the 2010 FDA hearing on amalgam safety.
In 1976, Congress directed FDA to classify (determine the risk of) every medical device. Dental fillings are a medical device. FDA proceeded to classify all filling materials except the most common one – and the most controversial one – mercury amalgam fillings. Despite letters, petitions, Congressional hearings, and a lawsuit, FDA refused to budge. For 32 years, from 1976 to 2008, FDA defied the law, until Consumers for Dental Choice sued them.
