Mercury Damage to Unborn Babies & Children
(FDA website quote)
“…nearly all fish and shellfish contain traces of mercury. For most people, the risk from mercury by eating fish and shellfish is not a health concern. Yet, some fish and shellfish contain higher levels of mercury that may harm an unborn baby or young child’s developing nervous system. The risks from mercury in fish and shellfish depend on the amount of fish and shellfish eaten and the levels of mercury in the fish and shellfish. Therefore, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are advising women who may become pregnant, pregnant women, nursing mothers, and young children to avoid some types of fish and eat fish and shellfish that are lower in mercury.” (See full article.)
Obviously, the FDA is acknowledging the dangers to unborn babies and young children for amounts of mercury that are SLIGHTLY higher than trace amounts found in some fish. According to the World Health organization dental fillings are a larger source of mercury exposure to humans than all other sources combined. Therefore, it only stand to reason that the exposure from “silver fillings”, is harmful to unborn babies or young children.
