10 Chronic Health Problems Caused by Amalgam Fillings Loaded With Mercury

Cases of chronic disease have reached epidemic proportions in the U.S., with issues related to the immune system high on the list. These diseases have all been associated with mercury-based dental amalgam fillings.

Dental amalgam fillings contain up to a 54 percent ratio of the neurotoxin mercury. The National Institute for Health, through an extensive epidemiological study, showed a high correlation between dental amalgam fillings and chronic disease.  Yet, the FDA and other health agencies refuse to do anything about this huge public health risk.

The public is waking up to the dangers of dental amalgam fillings

The following are the top 10 types of chronic disease caused by the mercury in these toxic dental fillings:

Autoimmune disease

Autoimmune issues linked with mercury fillings include arthritis, MS, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, muscle tremors, joint and muscle pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s disease, lupus, endometriosis and diabetes.

Neurological problems

Neuropathy, paresthesia, memory loss, ADD, epilepsy, autism, headaches, migraines, dizziness and vertigo are all associated with mercury fillings.

Mood disorders

Amalgam fillings have also been associated with anxiety, depression, insomnia, schizophrenia, anger control issues, and mental confusion.

Immune system dysfunction and cancer

Immune system problems like asthma, chemical sensitivities, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, sinus issues and susceptibility to infections can also be caused by dental fillings loaded with mercury.  The risk of breast cancer, leukemia, and other cancer types tend to go way up with these fillings in the mouth.

Cardiovascular conditions

Amalgam fillings are associated with hypertension, arteriosclerosis, angina and abnormally rapid heart rate (tachycardia.)

Stomach and digestive problems

Research has also found a link between mercury fillings and leaky gut syndrome, malabsorption of minerals, and blocked cellular enzymatic processes.

Hormonal imbalances

Hypothyroidism, adrenal gland issues, Hashimoto’s disease, hair loss, prostate issues and urinary problems have all been linked with mercury fillings.

Reproductive difficulties

Mercury has been connected to reduced sperm count, infertility, PMS, genital tract problems, spontaneous abortions, birth defects, and learning disabilities in children.

Oral health issues

Despite their intention and purpose of repairing cavities in teeth, mercury fillings can actually cause oral health problems. Mercury vapor can accumulate within the gums, tooth roots, jaw and oral tissue, leading to a range of health problems like periodontal disease, halitosis, oral ketosis and oral lichen planus.
