Health: The dangers that come from black fillings

At least until the 1980s, experts have argued for the safety of dark fillings, a mixture of metals such as silver, copper, nickel and mercury.

The American Dental Association (ADA) has for a long time stopped using this filling material, so if you have a molar filled with gray material you should know that:

"Mercury vapor" or its disintegration can lead to high levels of this mineral in the body, but the amount is so low that it is difficult to associate with side effects such as dizziness or mental health problems, typically when the body is poisoned Wednesday.

Of course, mercury can cause illness, but people are exposed to small amounts of mercury all the time.

However, some research is worrying. Not all health authorities believe that mercury in dental fillings is harmless.

Two recent studies from Taiwan have found links between mercury fillings with brain diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.

In the above study, women exposed to such fillings had 13% more likely to develop the disease than those who were not exposed.
