After Norway has given the example of three years, and Sweden took two years ago, after the Parliamentary Assembly on May 27, 2011, the Council urges Europe to “restrict or prohibit” amalgam as a material for dental fillings. This is despite the fact that the official side has told us about 200 years ago how the amalgam is harmless.

Amalgam has always been controversial
And amalgam, toothpaste containing mercury is controversial, and has since been used. The first amalgam fillings were developed at the beginning of the 19th century. After that shortly, the first debate in the United States about whether dental amalgam could cause harm to health or not – and as a result was a temporary ban on dental amalgams.

In Germany, the theme of amalgamation was heated by a Maxadrex similar approach, but only in the 1920s for the first time. Until now, science could not agree on whether dental amalgam fillings can now lead to chronic health problems or not.

In February 2009, approved by the United Nations Environment Ministers, meeting in Nairobi, to stop the use of mercury around the world by 2013, at the latest, as it is a deadly poison. The decision will be implemented in the list based in Nairobi in 2011, the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Program Board (United Nations Environment Program). The decisive factor was that the United States had abandoned its previous blockade of the mercury ban.
Mercury is stored from the amalgam in the body
It is not disputed that mercury disseminated from dental amalgam fillings into the mouth and then swallows contaminated saliva or enters the brain through respiration. Ingested mercury is excreted in part, but sometimes also in the kidney, liver or adipose tissue.

In the aforementioned organs, including the brain, mercury is stored with a half-life of up to twenty years. Since the nerves are also surrounded by fatty tissue, the neurotoxic effects attributed to amalgam will not be a surprise. The case is still unjustified (according to official standards), however, it is whether these amounts were recorded so that mercury can affect health or not.

Amalgam is useful, at least for a dentist
From the amalgam of the process at the same time, it is a very wonderful material for the filling, since it can be easily processed and outside is durable for a long time, logically, I did not see one – at least not something with a thunder effect – the need of a ban on amalgam.

Aside it was significant, and of course the cost that can happen to health insurance due to huge amalgam renewals in the health risk closest to the time the amalgam problem should be officially accepted.
