When preparing its policy and proposals relating to consumer safety, public health and the environment, the European Commission relies on Independent Scientific Committees to provide it with sound scientific advice. These committees have now been given new guidance. A coalition of NGO's strongly opposes the use of a method proposed by an employee of the chemical industry, Klimisch et al., (2007) and the OECD. If implemented this excludes a majority of independent, well performed, peer-reviewed scientific research and favors research performed by the industry itself, say the NGO letter. The cost of this effectively excludes most academic investigations no matter how well performed. According to the NGO: s this gives investigations performed by the industry itself an unjustified advantage."
To the Honorable Prosecutor Ocampo. We are requesting you authorize an investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC) into a crime against humanity under Article 7 of the Rome Statute directed at those responsible for the design, funding, execution, analysis, and publication of an unethical scientific experiment conducted on hundreds of children. The experiment exposed the children to significant amounts of mercury, a deadly poison, in order to justify the use of dental amalgam fillings.
Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions, has co-filed a “Crime against Humanity” complaint with the International Criminal Court at the Hague against those involved in an $11 million mercury experiment conducted on approximately 1,000 children. The study, known as the “Children’s Amalgam Trial” (CAT), was funded by the U.S. government’s National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
This article presents excerpts from a letter Boyd Haley PhD wrote to congressman Dan Burton as a rebuttal to a May 11th, 2001 letter by Robert M. Anderton, D.D.S., and President of the American Dental Association (ADA), challenging Boyd's statements to the Committee on Government Reform. Additionally, Boyd gives a complete dissection of the many flaws, including misleading data manipulation in the Saxe Alzheimer's study.
A hold over deal from the Bush administration is allowing tons of dental mercury pollution into the environment each year that could otherwise be prevented. The December 2008 agreement between the Bush Administration's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Dental Association (ADA) and the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) stands in stark contrast to pollution reduction initiatives now underway for most other mercury sources both at home and abroad.
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 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.
In 2006, the Journal of the American Medical Association published two articles that have been widely regarded as proving that amalgam dental fillings are safe for children: These studies were flawed in a myriad of ways, both scientifically and ethically. In the attached articles, Sandy Duffy, JD, finds that the process of informed consent in both studies fell far below recognized ethical standards. Boyd Haley, PhD, finds major scientific flaws in the study designs and conclusions. An editorial by Herbert Needleman, MD, cautioning readers not to draw "unwarranted conclusions from these limited studies," was published in the JAMA along with the two articles. These studies were designed to prove that amalgams are safe. In other words, they were designed to fail.

He also warns that assertions from the dental industry that mercury fillings are risk free is unfortunate and unscientific
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.
