Engineer & Scientist, Robert Cartland Recovers from Dental Amalgam Mercury Toxicity I suspected my health was being impacted by my dental amalgams but dismissed the idea as I trusted the scientific integrity of the dental and medical community. I assumed the anti-amalgam community to be unscientific alarmist. I expected to find little or no scientific work on the subject, but was shocked to find hundreds of peer reviewed studies.
Safe Removal of Mercury Amalgam Silver Fillings 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.
Published author, Deborah Merlin shares her amalgam mercury poisoning experience Plagued with allergies, vitiligo, and Hashimoto’s thyroid, I attended a medical lecture featuring a panel of doctors, one of whom spoke about autoimmune diseases and offered a warning that would change my life. “If you are in your thirties and forties and have been suffering from autoimmune diseases,” he said, “it may be connected to the amalgam fillings in your mouth.”

Evaluation of mercury in urine as an indicator of exposure to low levels of mercury vapor The relationship between urinary mercury and airborne concentrations of elemental mercury is only reliable down to concentrations of about 10 µg/m3 and therefore not an accurate measure for understanding exposure of persons due to most environmental air concentrations, which are well below 10 µg/m3.

Seán Ó Briain, My story of amalgam illness, and my start to recovery In 2005, I received 7 amalgam fillings and afterwards saw my health spiral downward. It wouldn't be until years later that I would pin-point the destruction of my health to this event.

The World Health Organization urges “switch” away from amalgam The World Health Organization (WHO) has released its long-awaited report on dental amalgam, In Future Use of Materials for Dental Restoration.  WHO urges "a switch in use of dental materials" away from amalgam. "For many reasons," WHO explains, "restorative materials alternative to dental amalgam are desirable." The report describes three of these reasons in detail:
A compilation of studies indicating inorganic mercury, as from dental mercury fillings, is mainly execreted in the feces There is a widespread lack of knowledge from the medical profession about the main excretatory pathway of inorganic mercury.

U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT TO ANNOUNCE POSITION ON MERCURY FILLINGS For the first time in history, the U.S. Department of State (DOS) is evaluating international regulations that would ban mercury-containing products including silver/amalgam dental fillings, which contain 50% mercury and are already in the mouths of more than 122 million Americans.
Boyd Haley PhD tells the story of his product OSR#1 - Oxidative Stress Relief OSR (Oxidative Stress Relief) developed by Boyd Haley is a powerful antioxidant. High levels of free radicals and oxidation can lead to oxidative stress. The body fights oxidation by producing glutathione. Mercury inhibits the production of glutathione, which then may not be able to keep up with the production of free radicals. OSR assists glutathione with scavenging free radicals.

The Difference Between Mercury-Free and Mercury-Safe Dentistry Mercury free dentists have been known to polish and remove  "silver" amalgam fillings thereby exposing their patients and staff members to thousands of micrograms of mercury vapor and particulate matter. "Mercury Safe" dentists take every precaution to protect the patient, staff and environment from harmful mercury vapors and mercury contaminated particulate matter.
Tara Lorai ongoing recovery from mercury exposure 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.

Wednesday, 21 September 2011 15:37



SAN FRANCISCO [September 20, 2011]—At an FDA Town Meeting Thursday, injured consumers, dentists, and healthcare professionals will challenge the Food and Drug Administration to protect the public from “silver” dental amalgam fillings containing 45-55% mercury. Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, Director of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), will host the meeting September 22, from 8AM-noon at the Embassy Suites Hotel, San Francisco Airport.

Dr. David Kennedy, past president of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and 30-year veteran of mercury-free dentistry, will address health-related risks of mercury fillings. Kennedy states: “In many cases, after amalgam fillings were safely removed, my patients’ health dramatically improved, including those with mercury-related conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and infertility.”

At Thursday’s meeting, concerned citizens will join Birgit Calhoun, a Stanford University librarian who has waited years to confront FDA for their blatant failure to warn the public about the harmful effects of dental mercury. Two of Calhoun’s sons were permanently harmed due to mercury exposure during her pregnancies. One was also poisoned from thirty fillings placed as a toddler. Motivated to understand the toxic effects of mercury, she translated German scientist Alfred Stock’s “The Dangerousness of Mercury Vapor” wherein he concluded in 1926 that mercury fillings are “a nasty sin against humanity”.

Heated debate about dentistry’s use of mercury, a known neurotoxin, dates back to the 1800’s, but recently, the issue has re-emerged as worldwide governmental agencies acknowledge the dangers mercury inflicts upon the humans and the environment.

unepThe Governing Council of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) is currently negotiating the regulation of amalgam fillings as part of a 2013 global treaty on mercury. Earlier this year the U.S. State Department announced support of the phase-down and eventual phase-out of dental amalgam, as well as “educating patients and parents [about mercury fillings] in order to protect children and fetuses.”

President Obama confirmed his administration’s position in his September 8 speech: “I reject the argument that says for the economy to grow, we have to roll back…rules that keep our kids from being exposed to mercury”. In contrast FDA has done nothing.

In May the European Council issued a proclamation calling for restrictions and prohibitions of mercury fillings, which are banned in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.

In the USA California has warned consumers since 1986 that “dental amalgam causes exposure to mercury, a chemical known…to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.” Despite this, FDA ruled amalgam unequivocally safe for everyone in 2009.

me-groupHowever, in December 2010, FDA convened a scientific advisory panel to reconsider the safety of mercury fillings. The scientists strongly encouraged FDA to discontinue the use of dental mercury, at least in pregnant women and children, and to require labeling warning consumers about the risks.

At a May’ 2011 FDA Town Hall meeting in Orlando, Dr. Shuren, after hearing from the public, assured them: “We've heard the concerns raised by a number of people…and we take those concerns seriously. It is why…we are revisiting our policy and why we reconvened our advisory panel in December…”

Dr. Shuren reiterated FDA’s intention to review the risks of dental mercury in a July 2011 letter to IAOMT attorneys: “We agree that the [2010 scientific advisory] Panel raised issues concerning uncertainties with previous risk assessments on mercury vapor and sensitivities in certain populations to mercury released from dental amalgam. Note that we are currently considering our regulatory options for determining what steps the agency will take...”

Participants at Thursday’s meeting will question why FDA is still failing to protect Americans from mercury, a known poison. Dr. Kennedy explains, “Scientific studies have established the link between mercury and various environmental and human issues, but we are forced to continue to spend billions of dollars on health care related to these issues.”

A growing number of citizens are publicly sharing stories of recovery from diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and myasthenia gravis following safe removal of their mercury fillings. Some of them will ask Dr. Shuren on Thursday why FDA is protecting industry instead of the American public.
