Amalgam dental fillings are 50 percent mercury and have been causing a wide range of problems for the past 150 years. Amalgam:
Damages your teeth. Amalgam requires the removal of more healthy tooth tissue, weakens tooth structure, and can crack teeth as it expands and contracts – leading to higher dental bills later.

Exposes you to mercury. Dental amalgam releases mercury, a neurotoxin. Children, the unborn, people with kidney disorders, the hypersensitive, and dental personnel are especially vulnerable to the toxic effects of mercury.

Pollutes the environment. Dental amalgam constitutes the largest amount of mercury in use in the United States today, and most of this mercury ends up polluting our air, soil, and water. Mercury pollution indisputably can cause health problems, especially for children and the unborn.
Fortunately, all of these problems can be avoided. Mercury-free fillings, especially composite fillings, are widespread. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t want you to know about them…

Consumers for Dental Choice Battles FDA Head-On

According to the FDA, the problem with amalgam fillings is not the mercury. The real “problem,” said FDA Assistant Commissioner for Public Affairs back in 2011 “is that there will be no end to [Charlie] Brown” of Consumers for Dental Choice.
FDA’s solution? Do “a communications end game re: Brown.” But the FDA’s attempt to silence Charlie and Consumers for Dental Choice failed. 
Charlie continued to exercise his First Amendment right to challenge FDA’s callous failure to protect the public from mercury. And that FDA Assistant Commissioner for Public Affairs? He was out of FDA within the year.
In September, Consumer’s for Dental Choice will launch an ambitious plan to tackle the FDA, and they need your help to do
