Woods et. al. 2013 – Neurobehavioral Data From CATs Reveals Greater Hg Effects In Boys With Metallothionein Gene Variant

Here is the latest in a line of articles that refute the conclusions of the CAT studies, that amalgam is safe for children, written by one of the original authors. The last line of this abstract, downplaying the effect of   dental amalgam on the subjects' mercury exposure, belies the fact that the CAT studies [...]

Woods et al, 2012 – Neurobehavioral Data From CATs Reveals Greater Hg Effects In Boys with CPOX4 Gene

Examination of neurobehavioral and genetic information gathered from 330 of the children in the Casa Pia "Children's Amalgam Trial" study showed that genetic variances influenced susceptibility to the toxic effects of mercury. Boys with the CPOX4 gene had significantly worse performance than those with the normal gene, while girls did not show this effect. View [...]

Geier et al, 2012 – Exposure to Amalgam and Urinary Mercury Levels in CAT Studies

Completing a trifecta of refutation for the CAT studies, joining previous papers showing dose dependent effects of amalgam mercury on porphyrin metabolism and neurobehavioral performance, a new paper by David Geier et. al. shows exposure to mercury from amalgam is directly correlated with urinary mercury in children.   Hum Exp Toxicol. 2012 Jan;31(1):11-7.

Mutter, J, 2011: Is Amalgam Safe For Humans?

Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology 2011, 6:2 doi:10.1186/1745-6673-6-2 Abstract: It was claimed by the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR)) in a report to the EU-Commission that "....no risks of adverse systemic effects exist and the current use of dental amalgam does not pose a risk of systemic disease..." SCENIHR disregarded [...]
