We know it takes a lot of time and effort to track down knowledgeable credible sources on any given issue. Which is why we have compiled a list of widely published mercury researchers, knowledgeable "mercury free" dental professionals, injured consumers and dental staff who are willing to speak with the press.
Injured consumer Freya Koss discovered that she had been misdiagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus and Myasthenia Gravis in March 1998 after having an amalgam filling drilled out and replaced with a new one. She quickly learned that the sudden onset of double vision and drooping eyelids resulted from acute mercury exposure during the dental filling procedure only seven days before. She also learned that silver fillings were actually 50% mercury, a fact her dentist had never told her. Within weeks she had lost her equilibrium, had difficulty walking and developed swollen mandibular glands, severe head pain and worsening eyesight. She found a dentist to safely remove her mercury fillings and worked with an alternative doctor to naturally detox the mercury out of her body. While the intensity of many of her symptoms decline, which was proof to her that the mercury had been the culprit, she still has neurological symptoms, the double vision and drooping eyelid and I still have autoimmune titers and elevated rheumatoid factor.
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.
