FDA finally admits fillings containing mercury may be harmful

In my local paper June 11, local dentist Michelle Jorgenson, who quit using amalgam fillings 10 years ago, is “vindicated.”   That’s because, due to the settlement of a class action lawsuit, the FDA’s site now says,   “Dental amalgams contain mercury, which may have nerotoxic effects on the nervous systems of developing children and […]
