Silver Fillings Release Mercury Toxins and Root Canals Leak Toxins



Silver Fillings

Why do people get Silver Fillings in their mouth? What do you do when you get a cavity? If you are like everyone I know you head for your trusted dental office believing they will take care of you.

After jumping into the dental chair you wait in confidence for your trusted dentist. As the dentist enters the room he greets you with a smile and is only too happy to take care your pain by supplying silver fillings in place of the offensive cavity. You leave the office believing our problem is fixed and all is well, or is it?

Smoking Tooth

Did You Know

Did you know that what we call silver fillings (Amalgma) are not pure silver? Did you know that silver fillings contain fifty percent mercury? Are you aware that these fillings give off mercury vapors every time you touch your teeth together? To see a demonstration of what happens when you chew watch the featured video ... if you dare.

Did you know that there is a direct link between grave health concerns and so called 'silver fillings' cradled in your teeth? Do you know what health conditions are connected to Mercury Poisoning? What should you do if you have silver fillings and want them out? What is the safest method of removal?

Let's take a moment to look at some facts and weigh the consequences of allowing silver fillings to remain lodged in our teeth and housed in our mouth and then talk about methods of removal and alternatives to mercury fillings.


Dental Fillings

What is in your dental filling? There are various components used to create a dental filling but what are they?

The mixture for dental fillings (amalgams) is silver, copper, tin, zinc and mercury ... One half of that mixture is mercury.

Most people have a mouth full of silver dental fillings. It's just the thing all dentists did in years gone by; Dentists did not know the dangers of putting this deadly toxin and ugly filling into the human body.

Up until just recently the hazards of silver-mercury fillings were unknown.

Getting Rid of Amalgam Fillings

Do you realize the dangers of housing amalgam fillings in your mouth? Do you know the safest methods for removing this toxic substance?

The only option to being free of this toxic substance is to get rid of it. One good option is to rid your mouth of Amalgam fillings and then replace it with a much safer and better looking filling of porcelain. The safest method of removing this toxic material is to find a biological dentist is trained to carefully to remove the tooth, with the silver filling, while endeavoring to contain the poisonous gases.

Later in this article I will share another helpful resource to draw the mercury out of the body.

Mercury Toxicity

Mercury Toxicity and Poisoning

What is mercury toxicity and how come we haven't been told about the dangers of dental fillings made with mercury? Why did the food and drug administration approve mercury for dental fillings?

Mercury toxicity has to do with the relationship between mercury vapor in the mouth and a whole variety of diseases such as alzheimer, arthritis, colitis; All of these have been linked to mercury poisoning. Mercury toxicity in the workplace has been linked to kidney damage, brain damage, birth defects and symptoms of multiple sclerosis.

For years mercury had been assumed stable when mixed with other metals. This is Not true! The dangers were not fully realized at the time this method of filling a tooth was created. Bottom line is that the food and drug administration automatically approved it, without an in depth study, for use in silver for tooth fillings.

There have been more than 100 million fillings put in American mouths by dentist this past year. These 'so called' silver fillings are wreaking havoc with many people's health.

But, you say, my dentist told me they were silver NOT mercury. The truth is that fillings, called silver, are composed of fifty percent mercury. Yes, fifty percent of your silver filling is made of mercury which spews out mercury vapors and is more poisonous than lead or arsenic ... Many people are experiencing grave health issues due to Mercury Poisoning.

Silver amalgams should be banned for dental use. It is such irony that last summer the Environmental Protection Agency,(EPA) banned mercury from indoor latex paint because of mercury vapor. The amount of mercury vapor released from a mouth after 10 minutes of chewing is 90% times higher than the vapors left in a newly painted room - that's downright scary!



Chlorella for Detoxification

Chlorella helps the body to detoxify from the harmful gasses of mercury. It is the chlorophyll in this supplement that makes it so powerful. This product helps your body to process more oxygen, it cleanses your blood and promotes the growth and repair of your tissues.

Chlorella is a single-celled micro-algae. This algae is very effective as a detoxification tool to help your body eliminate accumulated metal toxins, including mercury.

Dr. Mercola, Physician and holistic health expert, recommends 200 mg. of chlorella taken with every meal to support your body's detoxification process in eliminating mercury.

It is important to get a product your body can break down. Chlorella has a tough outer cell wall that cannot be broken down. Our bodies do not make the enzymes to do that. When High-Tech. manufacturing techniques are utilized it breaks down the tough outer cell allowing the nutrient to be used. When the chlorella is biologically active it binds to toxins and helps to carry them out of your body.

My choice to combat mercury poisoning is the Chlorella product from Dr. Mercola's store. There are other good sources on the market should you choose to do the research. Just search it using goggle but make sure it is manufactured to be broken down and utilized by your body.

In one study on the success of taking this supplement, mice were fed methyl-mercury and then given chlorella. The mice excreted about twice the amount of mercury in their urine and feces as the mice not treated with it.

Chlorella plays a crucial role in systematically eliminating mercury from your body. The majority of mercury is excreted through your stool. Once the mercury burden is lowered from your intestines, mercury from other body tissues will begin to migrate to your intestines where the supplement will work to remove it.

Root Canal Cover up by Dr. Meinig

Root Canals Create an Entrance to Infection

Weston Price and Mayo Clinic understood the dangers of root canals over 100 years ago. This info has been largely suppressed.

You do not want to keep a dead tooth in your body because every time you bite down on that root canal bacteria is flushed through your bloodstream looking for a new home. If you are in good health you'll not have a reaction but the moment your immune system becomes compromised it will fester into a grave disease.

Dr. Mercola is my favorite holistic physician - I have learned so much from him. I'm almost done with the dental work I've needed to remove root canals and mercury. Hoping it may be a key to better health.

Take time to listen to this video and learn of alternatives to root canals.

Hi Kasman, I'm glad you and your wife made the decision to choose porcelain instead of mercury. Wise Choice!

Thank you for the kind encouragement, I'm glad you found the information helpful and interesting. :) I wrote this to get the word out and I am hopeful that it will help others make the same choice you did when putting something foreign into their mouths.

Thank you for sharing on Facebook! It's such a pleasure meeting you here on the hubs!

Wow, I'm glad I optimized my body weight like the Doctor in the video said. I'm well aware of the silver filling controversy but I didn't know how deep it went. My wife and I were talking about this most recently about a year ago when we chose to get porcelain fillings in our teeth instead....which I'm very thankful for. So far, I haven't heard of any adverse reactions or problems yet........praise God.

I think you did a wonderful job on this and it kept me interested all the way to the video! I'm voting up, sharing, and putting on Facebook!

What a useful and interesting hub. Gradually I have had my silvers replaced for this very reason. I only had four and have had two redone so far and as time allows I can't wait to get the others done. I knew it was toxic, but the idea of it being that much more toxic than a whole room full of paint is pretty shocking! definitely good info and I'll pass it on!
