Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Doctors Huggins and Levy, who have spent years studying the toxic effects of dental materials, have written an authoritative book that accomplishes their stated purpose of "making the reader aware of the enormous and wide-ranging effects of dental toxicity." The authors have done an excellent job of describing the medical research in lay terms. They cover dental sources of toxicity, the body's reactions, specific diseases suspected or known to be caused by dental materials, and suggestions for dealing with such toxicity. Although a chapter with more clearly detailed information about alternative dental materials and detoxification methods would have been helpful, this work is well researched and well written. Recommended for public libraries.?Kristine Benishek, Good Samaritan Hosp. Lib., Dayton, OH

Before you have a root canal or mercury filling placed in your mouth, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
Seaotter
This book is clearly written and easy to read, and organized so the interested reader will be able to search for relevant sections.
Naomi Greenfield
Read this book if you want to get a more realistic idea of what all the brain-washed dentists and doctors DON'T want you to know.

I was fortunate to read this book before undergoing removal of root-filled teeth and amalgam fillings. My dentist had recommended an implant to replace an extracted root-filled tooth. This book points out the danger of such an immune system challenge (I chose a bridge of biocompatible materials instead) and provides further updates to It's All in Your Head. Especially helpful are the sections on root canals, cavitations and detoxification.

A great book written by two very intelligent and "open minded" doctors. Dr. Thomas Levy's story lead me to taking a more pro-active position with my dental revision. I already knew about the devastating effects of my "silver fillings" and I had some knowledge about root canals. However, his story took me to the next level of action...removal of my two root canals. And yes, just like Dr. Huggins and Dr. Levy mention in the book, they were infected and a source of slow and constant poisoning of my body. I owe the a debt of graditute for their courage to speak out about yet another atrosity in dentistry.
They also go into detail about many other sources of mercury...eye contact lens solution, contraceptives, vaccines, seafood, etc.
If you want to know why we are getting sicker and sicker in this country, then you need to read this book.

Format: Paperback
This book focuses in more detail on the issue of dental induced toxicity. The book is well written and an absolute must for anyone suffering from any vague, unresponsive illness. This book also sends shock-waves through the standard medical dogma of what constitutes "incurables," in that case after case of serious medical diseases were reversed after removing mercury amalgams from patient's mouths. The book is co-written by a physician, who's own health benefits were revealed after he underwent dental detox. His account will amaze the nay-sayers and awaken the nearly dead from mercury toxicity. I am a suffering, long-term toxic reader, and I saw myself in every painful agonizing detail of mercury's wretched effect on once healthy tissue. I have undergone surgery because of its twisted devastating blows, and am certain the grim reaper was riding mercury's coattails. Even if you don't believe that you're being bombarded with deadly poison while reclining in the dentist's chair, read the book. You may save the life of someone you love, maybe even yourself.

Format: Paperback
Something I did not know (and which the authors expose) is that dentists as a professsion have the highest suicide rate. It is because, they argue convincingly, dentists spend decades dealing with mercury, a deadly neuro-toxin, which collects in their brains. Although they don't comment on it, this is where the old expression, "Mad as a hatter" came from: in the past hatters became insane because they used mercury in their job. The average dental amalgam is 50% mercury: this is the poison the ADA claims is safe and allows dentists to place inches from peoples' brains? Europe is far ahead of us in this regard; mercury fillings are now illegal. The list of diseases improved or cured by removal of fillings is astonishing. The authors list case after case. Schopenhauer made the comment that ideas are first ridiculed, then violently opposed, then accepted as self-evident. I wonder how many years it will take before the dangers of these fillings will be accepted as self-evident.

Dr. Huggins graduated from the University of Nebraska School of Dentistry in 1962 and received a master of science degree from the University of Colorado in 1989. He is no quack, he is a crusader for health.

There is abundant scientific evidence that amalgam fillings are a danger to health. Dental amalgam is 50% mercury. Mercury is the most toxic metal known to man. Just look at the information from The International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology at [...].

Also consider that the Swedish Dental Material Commission recommended that amalgam be banned in 2002 - download the report from [...]. They commented that "The use of amalgam has been identified as the single largest source of mercury in sewage sludge, and crematoria are a large source of emissions to air in Sweden.". So how the hell does mercury get into people's faeces without passing through the body first ?

Dentists who deny that amalgam is harmful are either ignoramuses or liars - it's really that simple. They lie because they do not want to get served with class action lawsuits from all the people made sick from their amalgam fillings. That's the same reason why the governments stand by the dentists (Sweden excepted).

Format: Paperback
This is written particularly in response to Kavity Killer's party-line review of this book:

I have been directly involved in clinical dentistry for over 40 years. Quackwatch is full of beans on this matter, as they are on many other issues as well. They are backed by the AMA and ADA, etc, so know that there are a lot of god-like egos on the line here. Many mistakes have been made by AMA/ADA members and to be exposed would be a huge loss of face, not to mention the astronomical costs of potential litigation and case settlements. They do NOT want to go there! Sadly, our cultural worship of material success has led to a level of greed that trumps the oath to "First do no harm." It didn't just happen over-night. The AMA/ADA has been in bed with the Pharmeceutical industry for at least 50 years. The trickle-down effect this had on individual doctors and dentists was slower in developing, but has seriously infiltrated the general ranks in medical and dental schools, and private practices over the past 20-25 years. Many health professionals DO continue to fight this trend, but Pharma has enormous financial resources [ie, power] and the greed-based commercialization of US Healthcare is the result we all suffer. The problems are insidious as in many instances, Pharma susidizes entire hospitals, medical schools, and research programs, as well as many of the doctors who write medical textbooks. Consequently, their own products and protocols become the de facto treatments that all health professionals learn before they ever even see their first patients! Not to mention Pharma's infiltration into the FDA, with the subsequent "fast-tracking" of questionable drugs into the marketplace and into our bodies.
