What is known about birth defects? Is mercury related, and at what stage of embryonic development? Can enough mercury leaching from silver-mercury fillings alter our next generation? Can intimidation change this knowledge? No, but it can reduce its dissemination to the public. If you say the same thing over and over and over, people will accept it because it is familiar information. “Amalgam is, in fact, safe….. we have over 100 years of documented research that clearly repudiates any hazard…. there is no concrete research that shows that (mercury) is toxic ….. study after study proves the patient undergoes no risk … the amount of mercury escaping from amalgam is undetectable…” Prove it. Saying it does not prove it. If you have documentation, show it. They can’t. It doesn’t exist.
“We have ways”. Yes, they do. Who? Guess. There is a vast amount of information out there, but there are ways to suppress its being released. Threats? Not in this country. This book tells of the evidence that is routinely covered up. Some dentists have lost their lives in defense of the public, and many have lost their licenses for speaking out in protection of their patients.
The code of ethics formerly said, if you find something of consequence to the public and profession, you are honor bound to disclose that information. Now the code of ethics says you may suffer sanctions if you even discuss the mercury issue with your patients. Aren’t there laws? Yes, but the dental association does not have to obey them. Won’t the FDA, AMA, CIA, someone with three initials protect us? Not if they are in the same bed.
This information is why you must take personal responsibility for your own health. You are the only one interested in you.
