WASHINGTON, April 20, 2011 /PR Newswire-US Newswire/ — An amalgam of consumer groups today applauded a move by the U.S. government to support the ‘phase down’ of mercury amalgam dental fillings.
In a significant strengthening of a previous US Food & Drug Administration position, the new U.S. position was submitted to the “Mercury International Negotiation Committee.” It calls fora “phase down, with the goal of eventual phase out by all Parties, of mercury amalgam.” In 2009, with U.S. leadership, the Governing Council of the United Nations Environmental Program, agreed to develop a global legally binding treaty on mercury. The goal is to complete negotiations before the Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum in 2013. The State Department submission, for the upcoming third round of negotiations, also called for:
- “Educating patients and parents (about amalgam) in order to protect children and fetuses,” and
- “Training of dental professionals on the environmental impacts of mercury in dental amalgams.
“This is consistent with the direction several nations have taken to phase out amalgam. The U.S. position marks the beginning of the end of amalgam globally,” said Charlie Brown, national counsel of Consumers for Dental Choice.
* Please note that “amalgam” is the old name (i.e. – propaganda lie) for a mercury filling. More informed consumers don’t want to be lied to by the government or mainstream dental organizations any longer. These more informed consumers have a right to have their toxic mercury fillings removed safely and to have them replaced with natural tooth colored fillings.
