Mercury Exposure - Top Ten Reasons
to Beware

With so many things to think about, why should we add one more thing to the list?  The answer is that failing to pay attention to our mercury exposure and its symptoms means adding a host of problems to the ones we're already dealing with.  And alternatively, by paying attention now, we either avoid those problems entirely, or catch them early, before they are misdiagnosed as, say, attention deficit, hyperactivity, mental illness, multiple sclerosis and more. Here are the top ten reasons to beware:

1. Mercury is the most toxic substance we are regularly exposed to.

2. Mercury accumulates in our human bodies because we are the top of the food chain.

3. In the United States, exposure to mercury is considerable. One study reported that 8% of women had mercury levels higher than national guidelines.

4. A leading source of mercury ingestion for humans is fish and shellfish because they naturally store methyl mercury in their organs.

5. Dental amalgam is one of the top sources of exposure to mercury, as they are composed of an unstable mixture of 50% liquid mercury along with other toxic metals.

6. When the mercury in dental amalgam is exposed to saliva, it results in an electric pump that moves mercury into the body.

8. People who have several amalgam fillings have an average of ten times more mercury in feces and saliva than people free of amalgam.

9. When amalgam is replaced, mercury levels decline around 90% in feces and saliva and 75% in urine.

10. Safe exposure levels to mercury as defined by governmental agencies are based on 'doses' during an exposure; however mercury accumulates in our bodies.  This fact is not taken into account when setting such guidelines.
