Oxidative stress causes oxidative damage that has been implicated in the cause of many diseases and also has an impact on the body’s aging process. In this video series, Boyd Haley PhD explains the relationship between mercury and oxidative stress.
Mark Richardson, PhD, of SNC Lavallin, provided the scientific panel and FDA regulators with a formal risk assessment using the latest information from the scientific literature. Part 2 is titled CUMULATIVE RISK ASSESSMENT AND JOINT TOXICITY: MERCURY VAPOR, METHYL MERCURY AND LEAD.
A study published in the Journal of Occupational Medicine in 2010 revealed that The kidney retains more mercury than any other organ in the body and Estimation of urinary mercury concentration is of limited value in the diagnosis of mercurialism, as high excretion rates may be seen without clinical disorder, or mercurialism may be present when urinary excretion is low.
Mike Fleming DDS, served on the FDA dental products panel in 2006 and 2010. In this video he comments on various aspects of the FDA's stance on dental mercury amalgam allergy, including the ADA's statment at the 2006 hearing that 6% of the population (over 7 million people) are allergic to mercury.
What's the most important molecule you've never heard of? In this week's UltraWellness blog, Dr. Mark Hyman gives you the lowdown on the "mother of all antioxidants" and tells you how you can boost it in your body -- naturally. To find out more, watch this video from Dr. Mark Hyman.
On December 14 and 15, 2010, the FDA convened a scientific panel to re-examine the issue of mercury exposure from amalgam dental fillings. Two private foundations, assisted by IAOMT, have commissioned G. Mark Richardson, PhD, of SNC Lavallin, Ottawa, Canada, formerly of Health Canada, to provide the scientific panel and FDA regulators with a formal risk assessment using the latest information from the scientific literature.
Chronic Mercury Poisoning
A Brief Summary of the Science
In summary, most chronic mercury poisoning must be assessed indirectly, based on symptoms and minor lab anomalies.
Recently published in the Journal for Alzheimer's Disease was a study that performed a meta-analysis of 106 case-control or comparative cohort studies to associate mercury as a causative factor in Alzheimer's disease. Noting that the main source of mercury in the human body is dental amalgam (1 - 27 ug a day)
In this study we investigated the effects of prenatal exposure to MeHg and Hg vapor on Hg concentrations in the brain of neonatal rats. Among animals not exposed to MeHg, animals exposed to Hg vapor had significantly greater organic and inorganic brain Hg levels than did unexposed animals. This interaction, heretofore not reported, suggests that coexposure to MeHg and Hg vapor at levels relevant to human exposure might elevate neurotoxic risks.
In 2008 California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment concluded a new risk assessment of mercury and adjusted its chronic mercury reference exposure levels down to 0.03 μg Hg/m3. This level is ten times lower than the outdated and flawed, 20 year old chronic mercury reference exposure levels of 0.3 μg Hg/m3 as set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
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.
