Comment: 

This study explores a variety of issues, including the harmful impact of maternal dental amalgam mercury on the fetus during pregnancy, the issue of galvanic corrosion of amalgam, higher levels of mercury after placement of an amalgam filling, and recovery from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and allergy after removal of amalgam.

Abstract/Excerpt: 

“In the debate about the possible risks with mercury released from dental amalgam fillings (DA), an important point is whether DA can cause serious, pernicious diseases.

The following two patient cases are a contribution to this debate.  They are translated from the Swedish original [1], which contains an evaluation of 100 cases of poisoning and immunological effects in dental amalgam patients, documented in clinical practice, including recovery from most symptoms after amalgam removal.  Twenty-four of the cases have been documented in more detail, some with colour photographs.  The present cases are complemented by a discussion and some references to relevant literature.”
