Evidence of Harm, a documentary about the toxicity of the "silver" fillings in the mouths of many exposes the truth that the public deserves to hear. It follows the lives of:
1. A news reporter, mistakenly diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, when, in fact, she had been exposed to the excessive mercury vapor emitted during the removal of mercury fillings.
2. A dental assistant, whose debilitation was attributed to the occupational exposure to mercury over the course of her career, but whose employer/dentist remains unconvinced was a direct effect of the treatment he, and her previous employers, exposed her to.
3. The Chairman of the Department of Chemistry at University of Kentucky, whose efforts to educate dentists globally, about the genetic and excretory predisposition of some to the neurological effects of mercury vapor resulted in the mysterious suspension of his Federal research grants
4. The corruption at the highest levels at the FDA resulted in suspicious inactivity on an issue that consumer groups were trying to bring to the forefront, and also resulted in tremendous profits for the Chairman of the FDA on stock options she held.
Were you aware that the American Dental Association has, in its Code of Ethics, an edict that prevents dentists from speaking out against the toxicity of the mercury in silver fillings? Did you know that when a dentist gets trained about this ubiquitous filling material's composition, the "company line" (aka ADA) is that once combined with the other metals (silver, tin, zinc, copper) the mercury becomes inert? Did you know that the ADA also tells dentists they must store unused scrap filling material in a tightly closed glass container under a heavy liquid, like anti-freeze? Why? Because mercury gas is being continuously given off.
And that is the reason that the ADA has instructed dentists, for decades, never to discard the scrap in the trash or flush it down the toilet. Why? Because it is toxic to the environment. Vimy, in 1990 proved it was toxic to the human. And this reviewer never dreamt that in his lifetime of activism on this matter, that the American public would ever see the light
.until Evidence of Harm. This movie will lift the shroud from the minds of dentists, and their patients whom they've unwittingly misled.
Concerned scientists, dentists, and consumers have been trying to raise awareness of this issue for many decades. Kudos to Randall Moore, whose father succumbed to early-onset Alzheimer's Disease, and whose brain had above normal amounts of mercury on autopsy, for bringing this issue to the public. It is about time! This documentary is well-thought-out, proving once and for all, that the Evidence of Harm from mercury in the mouth is not idiosyncratic, but demonstrative of what MD's warned would happen, in the mid 1800's when this substance was introduced in the United States: Mercury, in any form, does not belong in the human body, much less 4 inches from the base of the brain.
If anyone you know has symptoms of mercury toxicity (e.g. early onset Alzheimer's, tremors, brain fog, fatigue, short-term memory loss, headaches) they should be tested for heavy metals AND see this educational documentary which NEEDS to see the light of day. It's been almost 200 years since it was mistakenly introduced to the American populace. It needs to be exposed for what it truly is: a very potent neurotoxin to too many innocent people, including pregnant women, and children.
