It has been proven that mercury amalgam in dental filling continuously leak mercury vapour and gradually accumulate in the body, especially in the kidneys, brain, and liver. This mercury vapour is increased by the presence of other metals in the mouth like gold fillings or nickel braces. Other factors that increase the release of mercury vapour are: chewing gum, grinding
This mercury vapour combines with the HCl in the stomach and forms mercuric chloride that kills off your beneficial intestinal bacteria, allowing the over growth of yeast, parasites, and harmful bacteria.This effect also lessen the HCl that is available for digestion and thus lead to heartburn, bloating, indigestion and other digestive problems. Thus mercury amalgam filling can be major contributors to chronic physical, mental and emotional illness.
