in an extraordinary development ,the US gov’t has announced its support a phase down,with eventual phase out, of mercury fillings. This is a radical reversal of its former position that they were not harmful. For more than a decade the world at large has already banned the mercury fillings and has asked the USA to join. As some of you know, I have not used mercury fillings since 1994 and have proposed the banning of this toxic material since then. We have had to be careful how we stated it under threat that our license to practice dentistry would be revoked. Now the powers to be have “seen the light”.
