The email calls for people to contact C-SPAN and ask them to broadcast tommorow's FDA hearing on this.

alloys. This joint committee will review and discuss peer-reviewed
scientific literature on dental amalgam and its potential mercury

mercury as a component of dental restorative materials; therefore, we
are combining the expertise of the Dental Products Panel of the

PRESS RELEASE OF CONSUMERS FOR DENTAL CHOICE, MERCURY POLICY PROJECT,
IAOMT



Media advisory for 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5
Contact: Peter Kelley, 202-270-8831
Advocates to petition for ban to protect pregnant women from mercury
tooth fillings, as FDA holds first public hearings in 13 years, Sept.
6-7

Press conference call set for 1 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, Sept. 5

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Leading up to the first public hearings in 13
years on the safety of mercury tooth fillings, advocates intend to
file a petition with the FDA next Tuesday, Sept. 5, calling for an
immediate ban on use of mercury tooth fillings in pregnant women, to
protect the development of their unborn babies. The U.S. Food and
Drug Administration, under pressure from medical researchers and
consumers, will review the neurotoxic health hazards of mercury from
dental tooth fillings at public hearings on Sept. 6 and 7 in
Gaithersburg, Md.

A press conference call has been set for 1 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday,
Sept. 5, to discuss the petition to the FDA. Mercury tooth filling
manufacturers have advised dentists in the past against use in
pregnant women. Canada, Britain, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and
several other countries already have similar bans or warnings on
using mercury tooth fillings in vulnerable groups. A U.S. EPA study
says as many as one American baby in eight – up to 600,000 babies a
year – is born with an unsafe level of this toxin because of mercury
in the mothers' bloodstream.

In light of these facts, members of Consumers for Dental Choice, the
Mercury Policy Project, and the International Academy of Oral
Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), will file their petition on Tuesday,
Sept. 5 with legal status under the Food Drug & Cosmetic Act. The FDA
has six months to respond. Meanwhile the ban requested will be the
centerpiece of testimony to FDA panels next week by eminent medical
researchers who believe that mercury fillings pose an unacceptable
risk to the pregnant women and their babies.

The researchers will testify as public witnesses, although severely
restricted by the FDA to only 3- to 10-minute presentations. The
Mercury Policy Project will present new research documenting the
neurotoxic effects of mercury on female dental assistants that, in
turn, was likely passed on to their offspring during their
pregnancies. In addition, researchers representing the International
Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) will be joined by
public interest lawyers, policy experts, members of Consumers for
Dental Choice, and other citizens who report serious health problems
from their mercury fillings. The hearings start at 8 a.m. next
Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 6 and 7, at the Holiday Inn in
Gaithersburg, Md.

The telephone press conference on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 1 p.m. Eastern
will feature these speakers:

• Charles Brown, general counsel for Consumers for Dental
Choice. Earlier this year Brown filed the lawsuit Moms Against
Mercury vs. FDA, helping prompt the hearings.

• Michael Bender, MS, director of Mercury Policy Project, who
has recently investigated reports of health effects of mercury on
dental nurses, in particular.

• Dr. Boyd Haley, PhD, professor and former chairman of
chemistry, University of Kentucky, on how the mercury in tooth
fillings affects the body.

• Dr. Richard D. Fischer, DDS, FAGD, FIAOMT, a practicing
dentist in Virginia and past president of the International Academy
of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.

For call-in instructions, accredited journalists only should contact
Peter Kelley at 202-270-8831, or peter@kelleycampaigns.com. For more

That PDF is scary - I never knew it was 50% mercury.

50 PERCENT in amalgam fillings.

Toxic as hell.

So what kind of problems do you think amalgam fillings causes ?
I think few people would listen, because so many people have these fillings and have for many, many years.
I know lots of healthy old people with these fillings in their teeth since childhood.

I'm not trying to say that they are good for you, I don't know the health risks, I have two, have had them since chidhood.

Perhaps I built up a tolerance from playing mercury as a child.

- Lewis Carroll

&Things are seldom as they seem ... Skim milk masquerades as cream.&
- Gilbert and Sullivan (Pinafore)

At NASA, it really is rocket science, and the decision makers really are rocket scientists.
But a body of research that is getting more and more attention points to the ways that smart people working collectively can be dumber than the sum of their parts. .. Irwin Janis? &Groupthink:& is a mode of thinking that people engage in when they are deeply involved in a cohesive in-group, when the members' striving for unanimity override realistic appraisals ? It is the triumph of concurrence over good sense, and authority over expertise.&
