The NY Times ran this story today along with many other news outlets:
Silver dental fillings containing mercury are safe for use by adults and children ages 6 and above, the Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday. Only people who are allergic to mercury should avoid that type of filling, the agency said.

This is insane! Mercury is one of the most toxic substances known to man and no amount is safe! Watch this short video to see very clearly how mercury or “Silver” fillings emit large amounts of mercury vapor which is readily absorbed into your body and has been linked to Alzheimer.
This is the FDA bowing to the pressure of the American Dental Association. If the FDA were to conclude that mercury were dangerous and ban mercury amalgam fillings and the link to Alzheimers and other diseases the ADA would be liable for billions and billions of dollars due to all the harm done by these fillings.
It can contribute to major chronic degenerative diseases including heart disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, chronic fatigue syndrome, kidney disease, and other neurological diseases, just to name a few.
