I read this book years ago and found its premise to be valid. Everyone agrees that mercury is toxic. When dentists remove it from patients they treat it as hazardous waste. So the only question is: does it leak out of tooth fillings into the body? Dr. Huggins argues that it does and his arguments are sound science. The toxicity of mercury fillings, root canals, and cavitations has been established beyond reasonable doubt. All that remains is for patients and dentists to accept the facts.

This book isn't worth the paper it was printed on. Huggins is a complete quack and conspiracy theorist, who doesn't understand the scientific method.

The book purports to show how dangerous the mercury amalgam fillings that dentists put in our mouths are, but it really does nothing of the sort.

So, apparently mercury is really toxic. And "silver" fillings are usually about 50% mercury.

(But don't remove them haphazardly, or it can be even more dangerous than keeping them! You need to remove them carefully, with about half a dozen safety precautions: rubber dam, air vacuum/filter, suitable replacement material, ...more

I didn't get around to finishing this book, but what I read was helpful to me. Hal Huggins seems to be the authority on mercury toxicity and how to remove dental amalgams safely. I didn't care for his style of writing, but I did learn a lot. ...more

Another good book by Higgins. I love the title! He lays out good evidence for why mercury amalgams can cause illness. Mercury is considered a toxin (hazard waste) so why do we have them in our mouths chopping on them day in and day out and wearing them down releasing it into our bodies?
