FDA Upholds Mercury Amalgam Safety Decision, Mercury toxicity notwithstanding
Sometimes I feel these decisions are taken by conspirators who wish to see us all die of a variety of toxins, but then I go back and try to understand these things for what they are.
You get yourself a bunch of bureaucrats who are more worried about their pensions than anything else; you give them the power to make decisions that change the landscape of American medicine but you instruct them not to rock the boat unless the fatalities outnumber the beneficiaries.
This is one tough combination to deal with for a bureaucrat who is risking losing a pension. Basically, the FDA will not act to change any practice no matter how archaic or toxic unless the dead are piling up on the streets of Bethesda. This is really sad but an important perspective one must have when looking at FDA (and CDC and NIH) decisions.
The presence of mercury in amalgam has been proven beyond doubt. The ability of mercury to seep from amalgam to the rest of the body has been proven without any doubt. The ability of organic mercury (not a good thing, just a chemical classification) to cross the blood brain barrier is also well documented. The ability of organic mercury to lodge in the myelin sheath in the brain is also well documented and repeatedly proven. Myelin in a substance that surrounds nerve cells and accelerates signal transmission in the brain. When myelin is compromised, as in increased amounts of mercury infiltrating it’s ranks, we become slow and unable to learn to a large degree.
So, while the bodies are not yet piling up on the streets of Bethesda, the evidence is overwhelmingly favoring the toxic effects of amalgam fillings due to their mercury content.
There is no treatment for mercury in the brain of unsuspecting patients. There is also no treatment for the beaurocratic mentality. All you can do is refuse amalgam and demand “COMPOSITE FILLINGS” from your dentist until the government wakes up, wises up and bans amalgam from the market.
Another thing you can do is ask your dentist to replace old amalgam with composite. Even fillings that are decades old still have enough mercury to make you sick in a variety of ways. I can tell you stories when clients of mine got rid of the amalgam fillings and saw improvements in a diverse set of conditions including hot flashes, skin dryness, other menopausal problems, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and so on and so forth.
My heart breaks every time I have to write a blog like this but that is all one man can do. Preach, preach, preach to anyone and everyone until society catchs on.
