Health tip of the day: A primary source of heavy metal toxicity is the dental amalgam fillings, containing primarily mercury, used for the last 100+ years, which is used in many “silver amalgams.”
These amalgam fillings were so controversial when first introduced in the late 1800’s that it split the only dental association of the time, the National Association of Dental Surgeons, into two groups. One group said no one should ever use mercury in the mouth because it is so very toxic and is known to leach out over time, poisoning the body. The other group of dentists liked how easy it was to work with and how inexpensive mercury amalgams were. In the 1800’s, gold was the otherwise preferred dental filling material. The two factions debated the issue until a new dental association was born, the American Dental Association (ADA), our present-day leading dental association, which you see approving most grocery store brand toothpastes. It was the ADA who approved of the mercury fillings, which became the norm of our society.
Of historical interest, the first use of the name “Quack” when referring to a questionable doctor was used in the late 1800's to label these dentists using mercury, since mercury was then known as “Quacksilver.” Today millions of mercury amalgams are placed in teeth every year in the U.S. alone.
One can only marvel at the power and influence various dental associations in our country have over our standard of living, especially when considering that doctors and dentists have been persecuted and prosecuted, sometimes losing their license to practice in the U.S., for attempting to spread the word about these issues and relieve suffering through the removal of amalgams.
Recent legislation has been proposed to outlaw the use of mercury in amalgams.
Some countries, such as Sweden, have banned the use of mercury and will even pay up to 50% of the cost to have it removed from its citizens, stating that the cost of removal is cheaper than paying for the long-term chronic illnesses as the result of these amalgams. (On a related dental note, many European countries do not allow the use of fluoride in water and toothpaste due to limited benefit and excessive health complications.)
Mercury is 1000 times more toxic than lead, while the methyl-mercury vapor coming off of fillings during chewing is 100 times more toxic than elemental mercury.
These “silver amalgams” actually contain up to 50% mercury by weight, 35% silver, 13% tin, 2% copper, and a trace amount of zinc.
German research has shown that mercury from a pregnant mother’s amalgams are directly related to high levels of mercury in their fetuses.
I have seen many toothless patients who use only dentures and are incredulous that they have heavy metal toxicity still from old amalgams long removed. The teeth were likely removed due to long-term degenerative changes in teeth that were full of amalgams, crowns, root canals, and bridges, all of which were releasing various metals into the bones and tissues of the jaws, and indeed the entire body.
Dr. Stephan Edelson, M.D., medical director of the Environmental and Preventative Health Center of Atlanta, Georgia, explains that, “mercury vapor (methyl-mercury) is readily absorbed into the blood because of its solubility in blood lipids (fatty molecules). This process contributes to between 80 and 100% absorption through the lungs from which the mercury is then carried to virtually every tissue of the body, including the brain." Therefore, the burden all of those years of metals leaching from the teeth and from other sources are not relieved by simply removing the teeth.
You must understand that it is no simple matter to detoxify the body of heavy metals. All of the organs of elimination, the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys, intestines, must be supported to handle the increased burden of all of the toxic heavy metals that is being eliminated from the body. If any of the organs of elimination are already weak, then do not attempt any heavy metal detox without the help of a well-trained doctor.
