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. This fish and shellfish can also hinder a young child’s developing nervous system. The risks from mercury in fish and shellfish depend on the amount 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 the full FDA article.)
What Does the Quote Tell Us About Mercury and Babies?
Obviously, the FDA is acknowledging there is proof of SLIGHTLY higher than trace amounts of mercury in some fish. The FDA further acknowledges the dangers of this mercury to unborn babies and young children. According to the World Health Organization, dental fillings are also a major source of mercury exposure to humans. In like manner, one would expect the exposure from “silver fillings” to harm unborn babies and young children.
