Mercury Madness!

Have you ever read Alice in Wonderland? Do you remember the “Mad Hatter?” Did you know that the term “mad as a hatter” originated from a disease peculiar to the hat making industry in the 1800’s? A complicated set of processes was needed to turn the fur into a finished hat. With the cheaper sorts of fur, an early step was to brush a solution of a mercury compound on the fur to roughen the fibers.  This caused the hatters to breathe in the fumes of this highly toxic metal, leading to an accumulation of mercury in the hatter’s bodies. This resulted in symptoms such as trembling (known as “hatters’ shakes”), slurred speech, loss of coordination, anxiety, personality changes, depression, and memory loss.  This eventually became known as “Mad Hatter Syndrome” and is still used today to describe mercury poisoning.

You wouldn’t take a leaky thermometer, put it in your mouth, and leave it there twenty-four hours a day, would you?  But, according to Dr. Michael Ziff, executive director of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, that is “exactly what happens when an amalgam filling is installed in your mouth.”  According to Tom Warren, “Worldwide there are over four thousand research papers indicating mercury is a highly toxic substance. How can dentists be so thoughtless as to place one of the deadliest toxins in existence two inches from our brain?”

Thanks to Mike Adams and for the cartoon above.

So how much mercury is in your mouth? There is approximately ½ gram of mercury in each dental filling. You may think that since you only have a couple of mercury fillings it’s not a big deal. Think again. The amount of mercury contained in one average size filling exceeds the EPA standard for human exposure for over one hundred years. Put in other terms, it takes only ½ gram of mercury (the amount in one filling) to contaminate all fish in a ten acre lake.

According to Pam Floener, former spokesperson for the IAOMT, “The metallic mercury used by dentists to manufacture dental amalgam is shipped as a hazardous material to the dental office. When amalgams are removed, for whatever reason, they are treated as hazardous waste  and are required to be disposed of in accordance with OSHA regulations and it is inconceivable that the mouth could be considered a safe storage container for this toxic material.”

So, let me get this straight…if a dentist were to dump some mercury amalgam in a lake, he’d be breaking the law. But if this same dentist dumps some mercury in your mouth (via dental amalgam fillings), then it’s completely legal and would no longer be considered a threat to the environment. “I don’t feel comfortable using a substance designated by the Environmental Protection Agency to be a waste disposal hazard. I can’t throw it in the trash, bury it in the ground, or put it in a landfill, but they say it is OK to put it in people’s mouths. That doesn’t make sense.” - Richard Fischer, D.D.S.

Did you know that dentists have the highest rate of suicide of any profession? They also suffer a high incidence of depression and memory disorders. Two of the effects of mercury poisoning are loss of memory and depression. Do you think the high rate of suicide (due to depression) and memory disorders in dentists has anything to do with low-level mercury exposure over several years? This is mercury toxicity, plain and simple.

Talking Turkey & Tryptophan:

Thanksgiving is almost here. Are you going to eat a large helping of turkey? Afterwards, if you do, the chances are that you will feel like taking a nap. Have you ever wondered why this phenomenon occurs?

The turkey is often cited as the culprit in post-Thanksgiving Day dinner lethargy, but the truth is that you could omit the bird altogether and still feel the effects of the feast. Turkey contains an amino acid called L-tryptophan, which does indeed cause us to become drowsy and can be metabolized into serotonin and melatonin (neurotransmitters that exert a calming effect and regulate sleep). However, L-tryptophan needs to be taken on an empty stomach and without any other amino acids or protein in order to make you drowsy. In light of the fact that most of us have a huge Thanksgiving Day FEAST, it's very likely that these two prerequisite conditions will not be satisfied.

So, if turkey is not really the cause for the urge to nap, then what is? The honest truth is that the sweet potato casserole, green beans, mashed potatoes, broccoli and cheese casserole, stuffing, and all the other high-carb dishes at the Thanksgiving Day table are the main culprits in stimulating the pancreas to secrete insulin. When this occurs, some amino acids that compete with tryptophan leave the bloodstream and enter muscle cells. This causes an increase in the relative concentration of tryptophan in the bloodstream. Serotonin is synthesized and you feel that familiar sleepy feeling. Also, it takes a great deal of energy to digest an enormous meal full of carbohydrates and fats. When your stomach is full, blood is directed away from other organs and you will likely feel the need to "snooze."

Those Thanksgiving pies are full of sugar, which typically causes a temporary boost in energy followed by a "crash." So, the pumpkin pie, lemon meringue pie, chocolate pie, pecan pie, apple pie, cherry pie, and any other pie that I may have forgotten will all cause you to long for that "late afternoon siesta" on Thanksgiving Day. Lastly, if you indulge in alcohol, you should be aware that alcohol is a central nervous system depressant and will also add to the "nap factor" after the Thanksgiving Day meal.

So, why do you feel like taking a nap after the big Thanksgiving day turkey dinner? Well, it's not just the turkey. It's a combination of the type of food, amount of food, and relaxing atmosphere. In any event, enjoy your turkey and pies. Happy Thanksgiving!
