Mercury Amalgam Fillings
Mercury amalgam dental fillings are continuing to provoke controversy in the scientific fields, with pro-amalgam and anti-amalgam camps furiously claiming and counter-claiming.
This is a hotly debated issue within the scientific community. There is a distinct divide separating 'pro' and 'anti' amalgam writers.
There is also considerable debate on the mercury dental amalgam issue in other related fields; Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS); Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinsonís disease, to name a few.
Of note until indisputable evidence to the contrary emerged, was the statement of 'fact' so assuredly delivered by those scientists who refused to countenance any notions that mercury amalgam could escape the dental amalgam in the first place to even enter the human body.
This erroneous belief is now known to have been a false assumption.
It is now clear tiny amounts of Mercury do indeed escape from the dental amalgam in the form of HgO vapor.
The emissions of mercury vapors from the dental amalgam happens on a continual basis, although the amount escaping is significantly increased when chewing, eating, brushing, and drinking hot liquids.
