Mercury fillings banned in Norway

Monday 31 March 2008

FillingsCourtesy of Dr. Georgiou’s Natural Medicine Newsletter!, we’ve had word of the latest news from Norway about their attempts to deal with the potential toxicity of amalgam fillings:

 

MERCURY FILLINGS BANNED IN NORWAY

The Townsend Letter, a well-known journal for holistic medicine practitioners, announced recently in 2008 that mercury has been banned from all dental fillings in Norway. From the beginning of this year dentists in Norway have to start using safer alternatives. The ban goes further than amalgam fillings, covering many other products; including measuring instruments such as thermometers and sphygomanometers for measuring blood pressure.

Norway has always been a leader in banning mercury, one of the worst neurotoxins known to man. Norway had previously restricted the use of amalgam fillings, especially in children and pregnant and nursing women, but is the first in the world to enforce a complete ban.

Announcing the ban, Norway’s Minister of Environment and Development Erik Solheim said: “Mercury is among the most dangerous environmental toxins. Satisfactory alternatives to mercury in products are available, and it is therefore fitting to introduce a ban.”

To read the rest of this interesting article that looks at the health effects of amalgams with some interesting video footage of how mercury from amalgams destroys brain cells, as well as other documentraies of smoking amalgam teeth, go HERE.
