Mercury Toxicity and Systemic Elimination Agents

We are seeing a serious rise in the environment of neuro-toxic chemicals and heavy metals. The resultant accumulation of heavy metals in the human body poses significant health risks.  Chronic mercury exposure from occupational, environmental, dental amalgam, and contaminated food exposure is a significant threat to public health.  A single dental amalgam filling with a surface area of only 0.4 cm2 is estimated to release as much as 15 micrograms of mercury per day primarily through mechanical wear and evaporation. The average individual has eight amalgam fillings and could absorb up to 120 micrograms of mercury per day from their amalgams.  These levels are consistent with reports of 60 micrograms of mercury per day collected in human faeces. By way of contrast, estimates of the daily absorption of all forms of mercury from fish and seafood is 2.3 micrograms and from all other foods, air and water is 0.3 micrograms per day.
