Mercury & Dental Amalgam
Amalgam contains about 50% Mercury.
has been scientifically demonstrated to be more toxic than Lead,
Cadmium, or even Arsenic.
leaves dental amalgam continuously throughout the lifetime of the
vapour is the main way that mercury comes out of amalgam.
vapour is absorbed at a rate of 80% through the lungs into the
is cytotoxic. i.e. it kills cells
is NO harmless level of Mercury Vapour Exposure.
from amalgam binds to SH (sulphydry!) groups. These exist in almost
every enzymatic process in the body. Mercury from amalgam will thus
have the potential of disturbing all metabolic processes.
from amalgam will result in a slow build up of mercury in body tissue.
vapour is absorbed directly into the brain.
from amalgam will result in a slow build up of mercury in the body
crosses the blood brain barrier.
is implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimers Disease.
from amalgam is stored in the fetus of a pregnant woman and in the
infant after it is born.
from amalgam is stored in the breast milk and the fetus up to 8 times
more than the mothers tissues.
(Mercury Vapour/Methyl mercury) crosses the placenta.
crosses into breast milk.
will severely reduce reproductive function.
rapidly depletes the immune system.
will induce a number of Auto Immune Diseases.
will cause an increase in number and severity of allergies.
from amalgam is stored principally in the kidneys, liver and brain.
from amalgam (shown in animal experiments) causes kidney damage.
from amalgam will cause a 50% reduction in kidney filtration as shown
in a study of sheep after amalgam placement.
mercury is more toxic than elemental Mercury.
from amalgam is methylated in the mouth.
chewing, mercury vapour levels will remain raised for at least another
from amalgam will migrate through the tooth.
rate of migration is increased if a gold crown is placed over a tooth
filled with amalgam.
are living tissue and are a part of our bodies.
have a massive communication via blood, lymph and nerves with the rest
of the body.
from amalgam is absorbed into the body at a rate of 3 to 17 mcg/day.
release is increased by: increase in temperature, friction &
increase in electrical currents.
from amalgam will enter the body as: Elemental Mercury, Inorganic
Mercury, Vapour, charged Mercury Ions.
the brain, mercury from amalgam is stored preferentially in the
Pituitary Gland and Hypothalamus.
is principally characterized by Neurological symptoms.
is transported along the axons of nerve fibres.
from amalgam may be stored in every other cell in the body. Each area
affected will produce its own set of symptoms.
binds to hemoglobin in the red blood cell thus reducing oxygen
damages blood vessels reducing blood supply to the tissues (micro-angiopathies).
fillings produce electrical currents, which might be injurious to
health. These currents are measurable in Micro-Amps. The Central
Nervous System (brain) operates in the range of Nano-Amps this is one
thousand times less than Micro-Amp.
metals in the mouth (i.e. gold & amalgam) will produce higher
from amalgam (shown in animal experiments) will induce Antibiotic
Resistance and Mercury resistance in bacteria in the mouth and
levels of mercury are in a direct linear proportion to the number of
surfaces of amalgam fillings in the mouth.
level of mercury in the brain tissue of fetuss, new born and young
children is proportional to the number of amalgams in the mothers
will cause single strand breaks in DNA.
levels in the body cannot be assessed be either blood or urine levels.
from amalgam fillings is the single greatest source of dietary mercury
for the general population.
personnel are severely affected by exposure to mercury.
