Poisons > 12 Points on Mercury Toxicity
By Dr John Whitman Ray N. D., M.D. (M.A.)
I have had the pleasure of testing several hundred
patients and students in my field of Body Electronics
with the Jerome Mercury Vapour Analyzer.
1. I have found
only two people in all my testing who have not
evidenced a continual toxic exposure to mercury vapour
emanating from silver amalgam dental fillings
under normal chewing compression. The amount of
mercury vapour emitted under normal chewing
compression exceeded in ten seconds what the maximum
allowable mercury exposure would be in industry in a
40 hour work week as is indicated by both Russian and
U.S.A. standards. This amount of exposure to mercury vapour is totally unacceptable to the scientific mind.
Dentists have been educated to believe that once
mercury has been combined into the filling material,
it remains "locked in" and can't come out.
The sad fact is that there is absolutely no
scientific research in existence to support this
hypothesis. To the contrary, all evidence
indicates that silver amalgam containing
approximately 50% mercury is a source of extremely
toxic elemental mercury adversely affecting the
health of the human body.
Evidence now demonstrates that surface particles of
the amalgam filling material are being chemically
broken down and released into the oral cavity. These
minute particles of mercury filling are acted upon by
oral and intestinal bacteria to produce methyl
mercury, an even more toxic form of mercury than
elemental mercury with target areas being
primarily the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, arid
4. It has
been demonstrated that dissimilar metals in the mouth
can also contribute to electrical activity and
corrosion (much like a battery) and can result in
unexplained pain, ulceration's, inflammation and
disruption of corresponding meridians in the body.
This may result in a wide range of unexplained
symptoms and disease.
presence of mercury in dental amalgam fillings has
been shown conclusively to adversely affect the
body's immune response. It has been shown that after
amalgam removal the red and white blood cell levels
tend to seek normal range with a corresponding
increase in the body's immune response as evidenced
by T-lymphocyte count increase.
Research has indicated that mercury is the single
most toxic metal that has been investigated, even
more toxic than lead, cadmium or arsenic.
International Conference on Bio-compatibility of
Materials was held in November 1988 in Colorado
Springs, Colorado, U.S.A. Many of the world
authorities on mercury and mercury toxicity met to
discuss the issue of dental amalgam and other
materials used in dentistry. Their official
conclusion was drafted and signed which read: Based
on the known toxic potential of mercury and its
documented release from dental amalgams, usage of
mercury containing amalgam increases the health risk
of the patients, the dentists and the
Autopsy studies from Sweden and Germany show a
positive statistical correlation between the number
of occlusal surfaces of dental amalgam and mercury
levels in the brain and kidney cortex. It would be
wise to point out that both elemental mercury and
organic methyl mercury were found in brain tissue
David Eggleston of the University of California,
found a T-lymphocyte count of 47% (ideal levels are
between 79-80%) in patients with silver amalgam
fillings. After removal of the amalgams the
T-lymphocyte count rose to 73%.
Multiple Sclerosis patients have been found to have 8
times higher levels of mercury in the cerebrospinal
fluid compared to neurologically healthy
controls. Inorganic mercury is capable of
producing symptoms which are indistinguishable from
those of multiple sclerosis.
11. It is
the responsibility of every dentist and doctor to
inform and educate their patients to the effect
) Mercury is contained in most dental filling
material and all silver amalgam
Mercury in fillings can have toxic effects on
some persons. Manifestations of the disease
of mercury poisoning only starts to become
apparent three to ten years after the
insertion of the mercury.
There are alternative materials that could be
used for dental filling that could have after
effects on the individual.
The patient has the right to insist that an
alternative material be used.
The freedom of individual choice in health
care shall be inherently respected and
preserved as an individual right and
responsibility of free men everywhere.
must remember that the diagnosis of mercury
intoxication is extremely difficult to ascertain
because of the insidious nature of the onset of
symptoms and because of most physicians
unfamiliarity or misinformation concerning proper
testing techniques. Unfortunately, mercury is so
toxic to the human organism, that there can be
cell death or irreversible chemical damage long
before clinical observable symptoms appear indicating
that something is wrong. Since organic mercury in
some body tissues (e.g. brain) has a half life of
over 25 years (i.e. it takes the body 25 years to get
rid of 1/2 of a single dose of mercury under
normal circumstances) it is only a matter of
time and degree of exposure until some form of symptomology appears. With all this in mind we cannot
fool with mercury toxicity or delay the safe"
removal of silver amalgam fillings by the hands of a
knowledgeable and responsible dentist.
