Mercury Free: The Wisdom behind the Global Consumer Movement to Ban Silver Dental Fillings

    "James Hardy began questioning the safety of amalgam fillings while in dental school more than 15 years ago. He learned then that these 'silver' fillings contain up to 70{percent} mercury. . . . According to Hardy, highly toxic mercury vapor seeps out of these fillings and lodges in vital organs. . . .{In this book he documents} the destructive effects of mercury on . . . the human body, as well as on personality, behavior, and emotions. . . . One chapter is devoted to ecological problems linked to mercury. If fillings were instead made of safer, stronger porcelain, Hardy asserts, we'd all be a lot healthier." (Small Press) Index.

  From The Critics
    Small Press
{This book} is plainly written, but too long (especially the repetitive 'brief review of the book' in the last chapter), with too much anecdotal evidence and a poor index (containing entries like 'unethical' and 'liquid'). Still, it will interest consumers, environmentalists, and health care workers. They may not be convinced that Hardy is right, but they'll want to read what he has to say.
