Dangers of using mercury in the amalgams

Dentist Huggins has led the fight to alert the public and health professionals to the dangers of using mercury in the amalgams used to fill teeth.

 Here he describes his battle with the American Dental Association and the results of his research studies.

 After explaining mercury toxicity, he describes such conditions as neurological and immunological diseases that can result from this toxicity. His discussion also includes the diagnosis of mercury toxicity and the pros and cons of having mercury amalgam fillings removed. He indicates that there are often no definitive answers in the diagnostic process and that the final proof of mercury toxicity is whether the patient feels better when mercury fillings are removed. A useful if very detailed look at a continuing health controversy. Karen Graves
