365 Ways #208–I hate heavy metal

#208--And apparently so do 19 Democrats and Republicans from 12 different states. These enlightened congress members have sent a letter to the FDA urging them to:

–require the industry to correctly label “silver” fillings to reflect their predominate component, Mercury;
–require all parents of children under the age of 18 to sign a written consent form indicating that they are fully aware of the potential negative effects of mercury;
–require a verbal warning given by dentists to patients over 18 years noting the high toxicity of mercury and the potential of neurological problems.

Specifically, the letter says that “vapors from mercury can traverse the placenta of pregnant women and threaten the development of the fetus. . . . Mercury is a known neurotoxin, the third most toxic element as listed by the CERLA Priority List of Hazardous Substances. . . . Dental amalgam is the predominant source of human exposure to mercury.

Now, I’m not a big fan of government. But someone has obviously been doing some research. And even if this ends up being a rare example of intelligent bureaucracy which culminates with inaction, you can take responsibility for yourself and get those mercury fillings out of your mouth with the help of a biological dentist. And if you need more convincing, you should google “smoking teeth”  or see this post (http://triumphtraining.com/blogs/blog/6363794-smoking-teeth-video) so you can be “filled in” on the truth.
