WARNING TO PARENTS:

"SILVER" FILLINGS ARE REALLY 50% MERCURY!

THE AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION SAYS THEY ARE SAFE!
CONCERNED PARENTS SHOULD KNOW:

  • MERCURY has been eliminated from all other uses in the human body, including vaccines, disinfectants, and other oral uses.
  • All other health care associations support full disclosure, while the American Dental Association hides its use of MERCURY.
  • The ADA receives money from MERCURY amalgam manufacturers through its Seal of Acceptance program, in contrast with the American Medical Association, which rejected taking fees for product endorsements.
  • The ADA holds patents on amalgam (since expired), furthering its business interests by the continued use of MERCURY in dentistry.
  • The ADA endorses pre-Civil War medicine, saying amalgam is justified because its use began in 1850!
  • The ADA says MERCURY dental fillings are safe to use in children's teeth.
  • In 1997, MERCURY amalgam filling manufacturer Dentsply stated that MERCURY amalgam fillings are "contraindicated" (meaning DO NOT USE) for children and pregnant women.
  • The American Dental Association is still calling MERCURY amalgam fillings "silver" and denies MERCURY fillings can ever be dangerous!
  • Federal and most state medical insurance programs only pay for MERCURY fillings because they are the least expensive, so poor people and poor children are especially at risk.
  • U.S. Public Health Service: The largest component of amalgam is MERCURY.
    ADA: Amalgam is "silver" fillings.
  • U.S. Public Health Service: For most people, the leading cause of MERCURY toxicity is amalgam fillings, not fish.
    ADA: You only get traces of MERCURY vapor in your body.
  • U S Public Health Service: MERCURY is a dangerous neuro-toxin; the MERCURY in amalgam goes to the brain, and to a fetus through the placenta.
    ADA: MERCURY exposure is like having an "allergy" to dust or pollen!
  • American Medical Association: Don't take $$$ for endorsements.
    ADA: Receives fees from MERCURY amalgam manufacturers while calling amalgam "safe".
