Could treating dental disease and reducing inflammation be the key to good health and a long life? Each day more and more studies come out showing that many of our health conditions such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes and cancers are caused by a process known as inflammation. But did you know that one of the major factors that produces inflammation in your body is dental disease?
Mercury is toxic to humans and dental amalgam fillings, which use 50% mercury combined with other metals like silver, and are considered to be one of our most common sources of mercury exposure.

The root cause behind many of today's most common chronic illnesses is excess exposure to toxic metals found throughout the environment, the food supply, cosmetics, dental amalgam fillings and in the past vaccines that we had in childhood.

Removal of Amalgam Fillings Associated With Reductions in Memory Loss, Fatigue, Anxiety, Confusion & Other Health Problems, A Study from Canada Shows
