Mercury use on the decline

I wanted to post something here that came to my attention. Mercury use is on the decline in recent years. This is great to hear and will hopefully diminish the job that holistic dentists have, removing mercury fillings for people in the safest way possible. I found this information on the website of the IMERC (Interstate Mercury Education & Recuction Clearinghouse) website…..”The decrease in the use of dental amalgam from 2004 to 2007 was 14 tons, or approximately 46%.” That is great!

According to this site, dental amalgam is the second largest category of mercury use in products. And unlike any other product with mercury added to it, there are no restrictions on the sale or distribution of dental amalgam. That is scary! So maybe Holistic Dentists will still have work after all!
