In February 2016, the research article “What Is the Risk? Dental Amalgam, Mercury Exposure, and Human Health Risks Throughout the Life Span” was published in the Springer textbook, Epigenetics, the Environment, and Children’s Health Across Lifespans. It is written by John Kall, DMD, MIAOMT, Chairperson of the IAOMT Board of Directors, Amanda Just, Program Director of the IAOMT, and Michael Aschner, PhD, IAOMT Scientific Advisory Board. They present the science of potential harm from dental amalgam mercury as applicable to the general population, pregnant women, fetuses, children, and dental professionals. They also specifically address genetic predispositions, mercury allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and other health conditions pertinent to dental mercury exposure.
