In reference to your statrment above, Javizy, if you’ll read Jorge’s post again, you’ll see that he referred to a ‘quick google search’ as the source of his information. That’s the only reason I did the same. And if you’ll reread the information in the links I posted you’ll see that this is not specifically google’s information as both links came from reputable sources as named in the reports. If, during a debate, I’m required to post only information which cannot be found via a google search, should Jorge’s information not be stipulated with the same requirement? Why not ask Jorge for published university or lab sources of scientific research and studies which prove his theory?
If you prefer studies that are not taken from google, I would be glad to offer those as well from my own collection of research journals:
“Assays of mercury in urine samples and in the ambient air during work routines involving the heaviest exposure indicated that the exposure was far below the levels at which even subclinical symptoms could be indicated by psychometric tests. The psychological investigation indicated that the symptoms of amalgam illness were psychosomatic.”

The most commonly used analyzer of mercury in a human being is the Jerome mercury detector, an industrial device which multiplies the amount of mercury it detects in a small sample of air by a factor of 8,000. This gives a reading for a cubic meter, a volume far larger than the human mouth.
The proper way to determine mercury exposure is to measure urine levels, which indicate how much the body has absorbed and then excreted. Scientific testing in this manner (urine tests) has shown that the amount of mercury absorbed from fillings, even over a period of time is too small to be significant.

The originator of the amalgam scam was Hal Huggins (D.D.S). For a period of 22 years, Huggins limited his practice to diagnosing and treating his patients of what he claimed were mercury toxicity problems stemming from amalgams.
During an official hearing, the Colorado State Board of Dental Examiners listened to and examined twelve days worth of statements containing complaints brought against Hal Huggins by his patients. Huggins subsequently had his license revoked the same year.
Facts taken from a formal hearing held in Colorado in 1996:
Huggins admitted that he could not prove that there exist a link between the mercury from dental amalgams and any disease, but stated that he was entitled to administer his services to patients based on his clinical experience alone. The board’s final report contains 235 findings of fact from former patients which justifies his license removal.
If Huggins’s claims were true, we would probably all be on our death bed within ten years of receiving our amalgam fillings. This is based on the percentage of his consultations that he claimed needed his services as well as his claims of illnesses caused by mercury amalgams which include;
cancer, seizures, MS, ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, suicides, leukemia, Hodgkin’s disease, anxiety, depression, both high and low blood pressure (interesting), chronic fatigue syndrome, osteoarthritis, Crohn’s disease, lupus, scleroderma, tachycardia, rheumatoid arthritis, and various heart problems. This list pretty much assured that at least a large majority of his consultations would require his services.
