This review describes the current understanding and the mechanisms involved by different forms of mercury in eliciting their toxicity in kidney along with the knowledge of major intracellular reductant that plays important role in the mitigation of mercury toxicity for the maintenance of homeostasis within the body of living organisms. Mercury toxicity has the ability to produce a variety of deleterious health effects, ranging from single to multiple target effects inside the body of living organisms.
Boyd Haley PhD explains why the apolipoprotein-4 (APOE-4) genotype represents a genetic susceptibility to mercury toxicity as a pathogenetic factor and a moderator of Alzheimer's Disease.
No longer can the dental profession ignore the problem of mercury contamination in the dental office. It is the moral responsibility that the dentist protect himself and his employees from any source that may be injurious to either his own physical well being or that of auxiliary personnel. It is also a legal responsibility under the enactment of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.
Inorganic mercury (mercuric chloride—HgCl2) induces in mice an autoimmune syndrome (HgIA). Hg may interact directly with fibrillarin/fibrillarin peptides causing a physically altered molecule which is immunogenic. Additionally, Hg-induced cell death (necrosis) might modify the cleavage pattern for fibrillarin, resulting in neo-peptides of fibrillarin which expose immunogenic epitopes to T cells.
This study summarizes the clinical features of mercury poisoning diagnosed by blood and urine tests for improving the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Because of its diverse clinical symptoms, the mercury poisoning was easy to misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis; therefore the awareness of the disease should be further enhanced. Leaving from the poisoning environment timely and giving appropriate treatment with DMPS will lead to a satisfactory prognosis.
In a group of 465 patients diagnosed as having chronic mercury toxicity CMT, 32.3% had severe fatigue, 88.8% had memory loss, and 27.5% had depression. A significant correlation was found between CMT and the ApoE4. Removal of amalgam mercury fillings combined with appropriate treatment resulted in a significant symptom reduction to levels reported by healthy subjects.
Boyd Haley PhD shares how the National Institute of Health (NIH) stopped his funding after his studies showed mercury could produce three of the widely accepted pathological diagnostic hallmarks of Alzheimer's Disease (AD). These AD hallmarks are elevated amyloid protein, hyper-phosphorylation of Tau, and formation of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs).
The overall vascular effects of mercury include increased oxidative stress and inflammation, reduced oxidative defense, thrombosis, vascular smooth muscle dysfunction, endothelial dysfunction, dyslipidemia, and immune and mitochondrial dysfunction. The clinical consequences of mercury toxicity include hypertension, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, reduced heart rate variability, and renal dysfunction, insufficiency, and proteinuria.
Dentist David Barnes, sued Kerr Corp., the largest manufacturer of dental amalgam in the United States, alleging that he had suffered a myriad of neurological injuries as a result of his occupational exposure to mercury. Dr. Barnes argued that Kerr's warnings were inadequate because they discussed only mercury, not mixed dental amalgam. Kerr argued that its warnings never represented that mercury was any less toxic when mixed.
While there are many books available about detoxing from mercury, "Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment: What You Can Do to Get Better, How Your Doctor Can Help" is highly praised and regarded as one of the safest, most effective protocols used for detoxing from mercury. Read on to learn more about this book from the author and publisher.
In search of answers about her debilitating health problems, Diane Meyer, D.D.S., B.S., went from doctor to doctor and was told “It’s your hormones honey,”. Until she attended a seminar and learned of her constant exposure to mercury.
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.”
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.
