FDA: Mercury Fillings Not Harmful FDA Rules Mercury in Dental Fillings Doesn't Cause Harm, but Tightens Controls - Kathleen Doheny - WebMD - Health News - Brunilda Nazario, MD - July 28, 2009 -- The mercury used in dental amalgam fillings is not at a level high enough to cause harm in patients, according to the FDA, which today issued its final regulation on the controversial tooth filling material. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: From the reports I have seen regarding mercury, there is simply no amount that is "not harmful". It numbs, poisons and kills. It was used to numb pain in the Middle Ages during surgery, and killed many a patient. The name of a "knife happy surgeon" using "quick silver" was later called "quack", a derogatory term referring to fraud. You probably won't fall over dead from amalgam fillings using a tiny amount of mercury - that does not mean it cannot harm you, in my opinion.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Just be aware that virtually ALL FDA approved pharmaceutical drugs have poisonous side effects, the main reason they need approval before distribution. In many cases there are natural alternatives available that are much less harmful, do not need pre-approved by the FDA, and often work much better than the chemical derivatives marketed by drug companies. However, profit is a big motivation here, one of the reasons that MDs refuse to prescribe the natural, healthier alternatives - most AMA approved Doctors are University trained to prescribe drugs, chemicals, and surgery. The Healing News Network will continue to monitor these "shenanigans", helping our readers become more aware of the vialble resources for healing that often work much better than the mostly dangerous prescribed drugs, chemotherapies, surgeries, or nuclear radiation treatments.
