    Bill for Banning Amalgam Reintroduced
    A bill for banning amalgam dental fillings has been (re)introduced to the
    house by Congresswoman Diane Watson. The bill is HR 4011.
    Congresswoman Watson's staff has encouraged us to get behind the bill and
    has asked the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology to have
    its members contact their local representatives.

    We also strongly encourage the public to also do so. Please let them hear
    your voice!

  2. Excellent news for dentists. If amalgams are banned there will be tens
    of billions of dollars going into dentists' pockets.

    What a laugh!

    I see you are for dentists. NOT the people--including children who could
    and are
    P O I S O N E D!!


    If amalgams are banned there will be tens
    Some dentists are STILL using them. WITHOUT warning of the risks.
    Neither CONSENT forms.

    But--YOU are all for $$$$$$ going to dentists.

    The general public has no clue what is going in their mouth. This comes
    from the LIES of *organized medicine and dentistry*.
    A pity you think it is funny!
    Very telliing!

    LIAR AND SPAMMER!

    Good point. I understand that the alternatives to amalgams take longer
    to use, and, do not last as long. Using a simple business model,
    patients and insurance companies will have to come up with more money to
    pay for non-amalgam restorations.

    This bill could be rightly called the Dentist Full Employment Act.

    it usually costs more for the patient to place a composite filling, so the
    if dentists were in it just for the money, why wouldn't the opt for the more
    expensive treatment?

    Jan,

    I also have a question for you. When are we going to see all the research
    demonstrating the negative side-effects of amalgam fillings on actual people
    who have had fillings in their mouths for the past 40-50 years? How long
    does it take for toxicity to present itself? Surely, people are going to
    start dropping like flies.

  8. I know it's difficult, but try to think. If amalgams are banned,
    dentists will make a lot more money. That is why it is a good thing
    for dentists.

    Read what I said again and you will see that I was talking about a
    world without amalgam fillings.
    Does Dentist Jerome (blessed be His name) offer consent forms when he
    is going to fill teeth with possibly toxic chemicals?
    So are you. You want them to use a more expensive 9and profitable)
    repair material.
    Says someone who only yesterday spammed for a commercial testing
    laboratory.

    The same question applies to fluoridation.

    PubMed Research Report:

    Italian Association for Metals and Biocompatibility Research (AIRMEB),
    Milan, Italy.

    Eighteen cadavers from routine autopsy casework were subject to a
    study of tissue levels of total mercury in brain, thyroid, and kidney
    samples by atomic absorption. On these same cadavers, all dental amalgam
    fillings (the most important source of inorganic mercury exposure in the
    general population, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) were
    charted. Total mercury levels were significantly higher in subjects with a
    greater number of occlusal amalgam surfaces (>12) compared with those with
    fewer occlusal amalgams (0-3) in all types of tissue (all P < or = 0.04).
    Mercury levels were significantly higher in brain tissues compared with
    thyroid and kidney tissues in subjects with more than 12 occlusal amalgam
    fillings (all P < or = 0.01) but not in subjects with 3 or less occlusal
    amalgams (all P > or = 0.07).

  11. This bill is a waste of time and money. The price of Amalgam is going
    up by 30%
    so it is going to swing more dentists to use composite.

    That's not quite true -- gold lasts longer. But it's a lot more
    expensive.

    Best solution: brush at least twice per day, use fluoridated
    toothpaste, and floss. Dental sealants for the kids are also a good
    idea. The cheapest filling is the one you never get. Too bad Gohde
    wasn't able to follow this natural practice.

    No, the bill is not a waste of time. In fact mercury amalgams should have
    never been
    used. The first dentists to use them were call QUACKS. Then came the LYING
    ADA and
    *organized medcine* seeing a way to make $$$$. NOT caring what the risks
    were.

    FACT: The ADA got caught LYING--saying amalgams did not leak. Then they
    made up
    a new LIE saying the low levels were not dangerous. Studies have shown that
    to be a
    BLATANT LIE.

    Adverse health effects have been documented. They were and are denied,

    The general public has no idea what is going in their mouth, they have been
    DISHONESTLY
    taught to trust dentists--like YOU. Who care nothing about people--just
    their EGO.

    There has never been ONE single study porving them to be safe. FACT: They
    are NOT.


    The price of Amalgam is going
    That should not be the reason for the so-called swing.

    People are searching and suffering--NEEDLESS. All because of these LIES.

    You just said *excellent news* for dentists.
    NO, you did not!

    of billions of dollars going into dentists' pockets.

    What a laugh!
    FACT: He asked for a compatability test.
    That is a BLATANT LIE.

    You want them to use a more expensive 9and profitable)
    Prove that, LIAR!

    I want them banned for very good reason.

    Have you have mercury poisoning for amalgams, Pete?
    REPEATING LIES AND SPAM.

    You are a proven liar.
