If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you may have seen the new IAOMT video we posted last week – a powerful animation showing all the routes mercury can take from a dental office into the environment. Truly, even if you don’t have a single “silver” amalgam filling in your mouth, you’re still affected by mercury through this environmental contamination. (If you missed the video, you can view it here.)
Another clip we encourage you to watch is Dr. Mercola’s interview with Dr. Chris Shade, an expert in environmental science, particularly with respect to mercury and other metals. He is also the founder of Quicksilver Scientific, a lab specializing in mercury speciation analysis, an advanced technology that separates methyl mercury from inorganic mercury and measures each directly.
In the video below, Dr. Shade discusses both forms, how they get into the body, how they affect the body and, most importantly, how to get mercury out of the body – a must see for anyone wondering whether their amalgam fillings are causing problems (or anyone concerned about the amalgam issue and the health of our environment and all its inhabitants)!
