    IS AMALGAM A HEALTH HAZARD?
    [Article in German]

    Abstract
    Since more than 100 years amalgam is successfully used for the functional restoration of decayed teeth. During the early 1990s the use of amalgam has been discredited by a not very objective discussion about small amounts of quicksilver that can evaporate from the material. Recent studies and reviews, however, found little to no correlation between systemic or local diseases and amalgam restorations in man. Allergic reactions are extremely rare. Most quicksilver evaporates during placement and removal of amalgam restorations. Hence it is not recommended to make extensive rehabilitations with amalgam in pregnant or nursing women. To date, there is no dental material, which can fully substitute amalgam as a restorative material. According to present scientific evidence the use of amalgam is not a health hazard.

    That's all it takes to cause massive problems. Mercury is one of the toxic non radioactive substances known. You know its banned in quite a few EU countries ? Obviously they came to different conclusions with regards to the science.

    What seems trivial to one person might be a disaster to someone else.

    Let me ask you: how many peanuts can you eat without dying? You're aware that some people can have life-threatening reactions even to a speck of peanut dust in the air, right?

    These two studies may help explain why mercury may disable some, and not others (at least not in an obvious fashion):

    Considering the removal of mercury from pet and childhood vaccines, contact lens solution, mercurochrome, thermometers, cars switches, thermostats and blood pressure machines, one must question what possible benefit a poison like mercury provides in the human body. Is the oral cavity the only safe haven for mercury?"

    My gut feeling tells me it's not amalgam that causes ME, and I did have a lot of amalgam fillings. It feels to me something viral, bacterial, something dormant that has come alive and knocked me down.
