British TV Show Reveals That Mercury Is An Issue In Europe

I just stumbled upon 2 great links. The first one is from a 60 minutes type of show in Britain about mercury fillings and health. You really need to watch this mercury filling video.  About half way through you get to see the CEO of the British Dental Association squirm and get flustered when asked the simple question, “Do mercury fillings leak mercury?”

The second link is from the European Commission.  They state that their key aim is to reduce mercury levels in the environment and human exposure.

They also concluded that “the largest source of mercury exposure for most people in developed countries is inhalation of mercury vapour from dental amalgam.”
