DAMS International     Mercury/Amalgam/Toxic Metals   Research & Medical Study Information Information             ph: 651-644-4572                             

     Mercury/Toxic Metals are documented to be a common cause of over 30 chronic health conditions, and thousands of people with such conditions have been documented to recover or significantly improve after amalgam replacement.  Mercury is documented by thousands of peer-reviewed studies referenced on this site to be cytotoxic, neurotoxic, immunotoxic, endocrine disrupting, reproductive toxin, and to block or inhibit most essential enzymatic processes at very low levels of exposure. 

      Mercury is documented to be the most toxic substance people are commonly exposed to at levels known to cause significant adverse health effects. In surveys of people throughout the U.S., over 22% of people tested had dangerous levels of mercury body burden, and over 30% in several states.   Dental amalgam is documented to be the largest source of mercury in most people who have several amalgam fillings (or metal crowns over amalgam), and also to be the largest source of mercury in sewers and sewer sludge, thus a major source of mercury in water bodies, fish, and the environment.
