The mercury angle intrigues me. Still exploring. How do you know if fillings are mercury? I have one silver and many a dull dark grey. Also, how does one find a dentist who safely removes them? Just had some fillings removed for a crown and had big time pain and sensitivity for a few weeks after. No precautions used to my knowledge. I have to be honest. I am do grateful for the info here but don’t want to be on this diet forever, if I don’t have to. Really struggling this week with missing things. Im in a 12 step program and using that helps a lot.
