ARE MERCURY FILLINGS DANGEROUS?06/03/02
Dr. Jame Hardy, a dentist from Orlando, has written a new book called MERCURY FREE. In it he says that mercury amalgam fillings are dangerous and could lead to health problems. He says bits of mercury and mercury vapors have been found to leach out from fillings and are associated with health problems such as MS, kidney problems, headaches, Graves disease, joint pain, depression and short term memory loss. He advocates getting checked for mercury poisoning and having the fillings removed if there is evidence that a person with amalgam fillings has high levels of mercury in the body.
