The World Heath Organization has concluded that dental fillings contribute more mercury to a person’s body than all other sources of mercury combined. Many people do not realize that their dark, “silver” amalgam fillings are 50% mercury.
A large filling may contain as much mercury as a thermometer. Mercury vaporizes easily at room temperature and in this state, is odorless, colorless and tasteless. Inhaled mercury vapor is readily absorbed into the bloodstream. No amount of mercury vapor can be considered harmless, especially considering its cumulative effect. (read more here)...
