I read studies that Amalgam can contribute to MS or any other brain disease. I also read that there was a study done of 20,000 adults with amalgam fillings and only 7 had MS.
I can't find a number indicating how many people in the world have amalgam fillings but I'd be curious to know.
Which just goes to show that fanaticism can override common sense.want2bike wrote:Of coarse amalgam contribute to MS and other neurological diseases. ...
I have never had a filling of any sort. None. Not ever. But I do have MS. So if I use Wanna's logic (logic?) MS cannot be caused by amalgam fillings - which may or may not be true. But I still have never had a filling, and I still have MS.
And that statement IS true.
Utter nonsense.want2bike wrote:Of coarse amalgam contribute to MS and other neurological diseases.
Remember the principle that the dose makes the poison. Only then will you understand how toxic the myths about amalgams are.
Mercury is a naturally occurring heavy metal, found throughout the environment. There are several different chemical forms of mercury: elemental mercury, inorganic mercury, and methylmercury. The form of mercury associated with dental amalgam is elemental mercury, which releases mercury vapor. The form of mercury found in fish is methylmercury, a type of organic mercury. Mercury vapor is mainly absorbed by the lungs while Methylmercury is mainly absorbed through the digestive tract. The body processes these forms of mercury differently and has different levels of tolerance for mercury vapor and methylmercury. Methylmercury is much more toxic than mercury vapor. The mercury vapors emitted from fillings are incredibly minor, and go through the lungs not the gut. You would breath more mercury taking a deep breath in a big city than you would with a mouth full of fillings in an oxygen chamber. If you are afraid of mercury then don't eat fish, or fish supplements, and you better inspect the soil that your fruit and vegetables grow in and the fields that the meat you eat graze on... or you could use common sense and realize that natural encounters with Mercury are not going to harm you. Industrial exposure is another subject.
I have 6 amalgams and have had two root canals that a mercury removal dentist/specialist recommends I 'correct'. My regular dentist says it is probably not absolutely necessary. I am not doing the work, at least not at this time.
Many major organizations have commented on the subject:

They could all be wrong. My point is simply that there is no conclusive evidence.

My point was simply that not everyone who has the amalgams removed gets better. And not everyone that has amalgams gets MS or other disease. There is just no conclusive evidence one way or the other. And I am truly glad you improved!
Perhaps you can explain why individuals who do not and have never had amalgams have acquired MS? And why others who do not have the amalgams removed also get better?

I know of people who have MS and had their mercury fillings removed and nothing changed. I know of people who have taken an approved MS drug and become better. I know of MS patients who have tried alternative medications and got better as well as those who have tried the same medication and there was no change. I've read about MS people who have tried diet to treat the disease and improved and also those where diet made no difference whatsoever. Bottom line Wanna....you can't take any one incident when it comes to MS and say that's why a person got better. That's why they have trials to test medications and ideas with MS to try and determine if what was done has any meaningful effect on the disease. And of the hundreds of different treatments tried over the years, they help some a lot, some a little and some not at all. Pretty much the course when it comes to MS.want2bike wrote:If mercury fillings do not contribute to MS you need to explain the people who get better when they have them removed.
That's an interesting comment coming from someone who has accused the vast majority of people in medicine of being liars. If you agree with someone than they aren't lying but if you disagree with someone then they must be lying?!Do you think these people are lying and if so what is their reason?
Well Wanna, you have never been diagnosed with MS. There are many many ailments that give similar symptoms to what MS shows and you are only guessing about what may have happened to you.For sure anyone with amalgams should consider the possibility of the cause. I can tell you for a fact when I address the poison I had in my mouth the symptoms of MS went away.
Other than to save face to try and get the readers here to believe you. And you lost that possibility ages ago!I have no reason to lie.
Yep, anyone who doesn't agree with you MUST be a liar. Especially the entire world of medicine.Lot of people lying to us.

I each wild caught fish regularly and I am concerned about the mercury levels in the fish I eat as well and may make some minor diet changes in that regard.
