The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) toxicological profile succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for the hazardous substance described here. Each peer-reviewed profile identifies and reviews the key literature that describes a hazardous substance's toxicologic properties.
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) once again ignores their own data on mercury vapor to exclude it from their "Interaction profile for: Chlorpyrifos, Lead, Mercury, and Methylmercury", of which the primary effect of concern for this mixture is neurological, and the sub-population of concern is children. ATSDR has thus chose to not acknowledge or address the primary exposure of mercury in the population, that of dental mercury amalgam fillings.
According to this Public Service Announcement (PSA) created jointly by The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), mercury "is really poisonous" and "can make you sick". But yet their message fails to acknowledge the largest source of mercury exposure in 60 - 200 million Americans, that of dental amalgam.
Mercuryexposure.info was created and is maintained by consumers injured from exposure to mercury vapor and particles released by their dental amalgam fillings during placement, polishing, removal and day to day use. We are dedicated to providing accurate, up to date information on the many facets of dental mercury amalgam fillings.
