Dental Amalgam — miscellaneous information on the larger picture.

  • Mercury Amalgam - "How is it that the only place Mecury is safe is in the mouth?" Articles collected by ALT Corp, who make tests for certain medical & dental problems (including Cavitations) — and feel responsible for raising consciousness about them.
  • Dental Mercury Exposure from CFS Nutrition. Cites studies, has graphs.
  • Mercury Amalgam Safety: Rethinking Dangerous Decisions by Dr. Zoltan P. Rona MD MSc — an article from the collection of Heatlthlink, the alternative Health Directory of Vancouver, BC, Canada.
  • Mercury Dental Amalgams; Analyzing the Debate by Gary Null, science writer. Good general overview, with references. (Doesn't get into mechanisms and references are not primary sources.)
  • UK Amalgam Page Comprehensive collection of links, including the text of a press release from BUND, Friends of the earth —
    • The Association of Environment and Environmental Protection, Germany. Dunanstrasse 16, D-79110 Freiburg. Freiburg/Bonn, 28 January 1997 (translated from German by Mats Hanson, Ph.D. of Sweden).
    • The press release documents the results of the largest trial on mercury release from dental amalgam fillings in the world, initiated in 1995 by BUND and carried out by the Department of Environmental Analysis labs at the University of Tubingen.
  • Warning: Read the Fine Print — In The Valley Advocate, an online newspaper from Springfield, Massachusetts, USA. About how the poisonous nature of mercury almalgams is hushed up.
    • Ulf Bengtsson's site on Mercury amalgams (containing documentation of his finding the Dispersalloy documents that were withdrawn)
  • The AMALGAM Email List —
    October 2005: something is wrong with this list and/or its site; I need to investigate. Following is a description of how it used to be:
    Several well-informed people on this independent list answer questions on possible mechanisms of mercury poisoning and on possible treatments.
    • Traffic on the list is however very heavy, and hard to keep up with. I mostly just use the archives here. To access them you must be a member. Go to the "Join or Leave" page.
    • If you have already joined, you need to login. (You can also start at the "Join or Leave" page and click on the link that says "login with your LISTSERV password.")
      • The page that takes you to should say "You are currently subscribed to AMALGAM. From this screen, you can update your subscription options or leave the list." What is not obvious is that this is also the only way to access the archives. To do that, push the button that says "Back to AMALGAM home page" and then when you get there, click on the link that says "Search the archives."
      • (In any single browser session, after you have established your membership via this circuitous route, you can later go directly to the home page and "Search the archives." But if you shut your browser down, you have to go through the arcane login again.)
  • Dental Amalgam Scientific Facts Much good information is buried on this poorly-organized site. Save the URL of any page that interests you, or you may not be able to get back to it. Especially see Dr. Bernie Windham's collection of documentation, Facts about mercury and Dental Amalgam with Medical Study Reverences.
  • DAMS (Dental Amalgam Mercury Syndrome Support Group)
  • Hot List for King James Medical Laboratory "This page contains links to web sites and pages having to do with science, medicine and other interesting things. The information is divided into the following categories:
    • Mercury [Note: most of the links here provide general, non-technical information.]
    • General Medicine and Nutrition
    • Organizations and Journals
    • Other Sites of Interest
    • Search Engines and Virtual Libraries"
  • MercuryFillings (Egroups)
  • Tooth Traitors - Draft - by CFMR, Citizens For Mercury Relief

Other sources of Mercury

  • Thimerosal in Vaccines — An Interim Report to Clinicians (RE9935)" ?from the American Academy of Pediatrics' journal Pediatrics, vol 104, no 3. (September 1999) pp. 570-574. Another common source of exposure to mercury -- also called Merthiolate -- a salt of ethylmercury thiosalicylate, widely used as a preservative in soft contact lenses, nose and eye drops; as well as vaccines
  • Thimerosal
  • Mercury Update: Impact on Fish Advisories — EPA information on mercury in fish
  • EPA Consumption Advisories — EPA estimates of safe amounts to eat (?!)
