This video is an interview from dentist Dr. Marvin with Randy Alvarez, the leader in medical news and information. Dr. Marvin talks about the importance of holistic and natural practice. He informs us how mercury fillings are dangerous for the body as well as root canals and explains the healthy alternatives of holistic therapies.
24 years ago, “60-Minutes” aired an episode about dental amalgam fillings questioning it’s use in dentistry. That was just after mercury had been removed from latex paint because of toxicity. 24 years later, and dentists are still placing and advocating for the use of mercury in dentistry.
The argument? Uninformed dentists say that chronic exposure to mercury at low levels does NOT harm your health… they argue that only acute toxicity matters, despite the scientific evidence that chronic exposure to mercury — a neuro-toxin — will cause health problems. Supporters of mercury say that there is no “scientific evidence that the mercury from fillings can cause health problems” and they want double-blind studies to prove it, despite the studies that have shown the harmful effects of mercury (dentists somehow believe that mercury in your mouth is different from mercury anywhere else — it’s safer… because they say so).
Do you still have mercury amalgam fillings in your mouth? If you haven’t seen this, then now is a good time to watch this 5 minute video. It’s a study showing the destructive damage of mercury to a brain neuron. Mercury is one of the most toxic non-radioactive substance known to man.
