Amalgam restorations and mobile phones
EMFs from cell phone calls accelerate hg release from silver fillings
In addition to increasing the risk of developing various cancers both directly (by telephoning) and indirectly (via cell phone towers [cellular transmitter antennas]), mobile phone use has also been found to increase mercury leakage from dental amalgam restorations.
The study "Mercury release from dental amalgam restorations after magnetic resonance imaging and following mobile phone use" looked into a possible link between exposure to MRIs and microwave radiation from cell phones and increased release of (highly toxic) mercury from dental fillings.
By measuring and comparing urinary and salivary mercury concentrations before and after exposure to the above electromagnetic fields, the researchers found that MRI and mobile phone use triggered significantly higher mercury leakage from dental amalgam restorations. They suggest that other common sources of EMFs should additionally be investigated for similar effects on dental amalgam mercury.
