An important source of a mercury load is amalgam fillings in the teeth.

Amalgam consists of 50% mercury. Contrary to popular belief, amalgam fillings in the teeth continuously release mercury vapor and ions.

For example, it is estimated that a person with a few amalgam fillings in the mouth releases at least 30, up to 125 mcg of mercury per day.

In addition to mercury, amalgam fillings also contain tin and silver and sometimes zinc and / or copper. These metals can further increase the toxic load on the body and enhance mercury toxicity.

As a result, amalgam fillings in the teeth can have a major negative effect on health.
