Are your teeth toxic?
The mercury in 'silver' fillings would be hazardous waste in a river----yet it's sitting in your mouth

Julie Deardorff's article in the CHICAGO TRIBUNE today on the danger from mercury used in silver dental fillings...

is related to the issue of mercury in any form. The government health agencies warn us about mercury exposure from fish at the same time they recommend the flu vaccine for everyone, even pregnant women and six-month-old babies. The adult flu vaccine contains 25 mcg of mercury which can only be absorbed by someone weighing 550 pounds by EPA standards. The children's vaccine has 12.5 mcg of mercury. This is the amount for someone weighing 275 pounds. The same government that allows dentists to put fillings in our mouths made half out of mercury, recommends that pregnant women receive a flu vaccine with unconscionable levels of mercury.

Autism affects one in every 166 children. Twenty years ago, it was one in 10,000.
One in every 6 schoolchildren has a diagnosis of attention deficit or some other developmental disorder. MS, Alzheimer's Disease, and a host of other neurological disorders affect more and more people. How much mercury exposure can we stand as a society?

I write this as the mother of a son with autism and a daughter who developed epileptic convulsions at 10 years of age after her HepB vaccine with mercury. I also am a teacher of students with the developmental disorders that are overwhelming our schools.
