Test Your Mercury IQ

Did you know those silver-colored amalgam fillings are not really silver? Did you know they contain 48% to 54% mercury?

Did you know that mercury is more toxic than lead?

Did you know that mercury is listed as a known reproductive neurotoxin and carcinogen under Proposition 65 in the State of California?

Did you know those silver colored mercury amalgam fillings have never been clinically trialed by the FDA?

Did you know that they leak mercury vapor at a rate of 43 micrograms per day?

Did you know that each silver-colored amalgam filling contains about the same amount of mercury as one mercury-filled thermometer?

Did you know that the mercury in one thermometer can contaminate a 20-acre lake?

Do you know how many lakes your mouth could contaminate?

“A large dental filling may contain as much mercury as a thermometer. Mercury vaporizes easily at room temperature and in this state, is odorless, colorless and tasteless. Inhaled mercury vapor is readily absorbed into the bloodstream. No amount of mercury vapor can be considered harmless, especially considering its cumulative effect.”
