Harmful effects of mercury depend on, among other things, the number of amalgam fillings, other toxins, the constitution, genetic makeup, general condition and the detoxification capacity of a person's intestines, liver and kidneys.

Professions that work with mercury run an extra risk of developing health problems due to a mercury load.

Consider, for example, employees in the mining industry, welders, metal workers, dentists and dental assistants. For example, the average dentist has 1000 times more mercury in the pituitary gland than the average person.

In addition, certain groups of people are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of mercury, such as fetuses, babies, children, people with chemical hypersensitivity and disorders of the brain or nervous system, such as Autism, MS, ALS, Parkinson's and Lyme disease and a condition with reduced kidney or liver function.
