The Amalgam Controversy

This site is not about the amalgam controversy. But because it is that issue which most commonly brings people to chelating agents such as DMPS, I will address it briefly here.

There has been more and more media coverage regarding the alleged health risks of metals from amalgam fillings. 60 Minutes and Dateline have both run stories... each taking a disparate position.

Quite honestly, I don't know if amalgams are contributory causes of illnesses. It makes sense to me that metals known to be toxic to humans should not be placed in teeth. The "anti-amalgam" side claims that mercury can cause a wide variety of health problems.

However, there are lots of healthy people who have amalgam fillings. I know people who have experienced no health benefits from amalgam replacement and subsequent "detox" programs. On the other hand, I have spoken to people whose health has improved, sometimes substantially, by taking these steps. So the debate rages on. In the end, the issue of amalgam risk has to be studied and weighed carefully by each individual. You can find both sides of the debate on the internet and elsewhere.

As with any professional field, there are conscientious practitioners and incompetent, even predatory ones. There's lots of money to be made by persuading patients that their amalgams need to be replaced, and that they need to undergo a lengthy detoxification program in order to get well. So this issue is a particularly attractive one for the greedy who are more than willing to prey on patients' fears. Be very discriminating in your choice of health care professional.
