The FDA has given its blessing to continue with amalgams – requiring “labeling” instead of a real ban!
Specifically, the FDA recommended that the product labeling include:
- A warning against the use of dental amalgam in patients with mercury allergy;
- A warning that dental professionals use adequate ventilation when handling dental amalgam;
- A statement discussing the scientific evidence on the benefits and
risk of dental amalgam, including the risks of inhaled mercury vapor.
The statement will help dentists and patients make informed decisions
about the use of dental amalgam.

I interviewed Leo Cashman from DAMS (Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions), International on the connection between our health and mercury amalgams (fungus promoter, cancer cause and more). Listen to my discussion on Leo’s experience with Dr Simoncini’s only live US class on the subject of fungus and mercury amalgams:

I have a dentist who suffered mercury poisoning himself. He related the whole story and he is extremely opposed to mercury amalgams. In fact, the components used to make the amalgams have to be seperated because together they would compose a very hazardous substance. However it is ‘legal’ for the dentist to mix the parts together just before inserting them into your mouth.
I think that if you approach it from a rational perspective – just the fact that so many professionals, including medical doctors and scientists are against it – then you have to take the approach of ‘playing it safe’ and avoiding amalgams. Yes, there is still debate, but the mere fact that a debate exists whould be enough to tell anyone they should be cautious.
