"Mercury amalgams are as close as you can get to the centre of the illness universe; their use in dentistry has set us up for most of the health problems we see today."--Bruce Shelton, M.D., M.D.(H), Di.Hom.

"A July 2000 report from a National Academy of Sciences study states that 60,000 children are born at risk for adverse neuro-developmental effects each year due to their mothers' exposure to methyl-mercury. A Center for Disease Control and Prevention study in March 2001 (in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report) indicates that about 10% of American women of child-bearing age are at risk for having a baby born with neurological problems due to in utero mercury exposure (statistically representing about 375,000 babies/year). The fact that amalgams are most likely the major contributor to the mercury levels in American citizens should be clearly presented to the public. Yet all the American public hears is concerns about mercury in fish."---Boyd Haley, Ph.D. (Testimony Before the House Government Reform Committee)

"Studies on the toxicity of mercury to mammalian neurons in culture demonstrate that low nanomolar levels can have lethal effects. Experiments using this system have also demonstrated, in agreement with published literature, that many antibiotics, other heavy metals and chemicals increase the toxicity of mercury and thimerosal (ethyl mercury). Additionally, in this same system the female hormone estrogen decreases thimerosal's toxic effects. In contrast, the male hormone testosterone greatly increases the toxicity. This may explain the 4 to 1 ratio of boys to girls that become autistic and the observation that boys represent the vast majority of the severe cases of autism. "---Boyd Haley, Ph.D. (Testimony Before the House Government Reform Committee)

"The Alzheimer's type of dementia does respond rather well to chelation therapy. Fifteen Alzheimer's disease patients, in a private clinical setting, were tested first, then administered chelation therapy, and were observed by loved ones to have returned to normal, or near normal, functioning. It was a gratifying experience for everyone involved with the testing and treatment: diagnostitians, clinicians, health care technicians, the patients, plus their family and friends." -Dr Casdorph, M.D. & Dr Morton Walker "In treating Alzheimer's patients, the following are some of the approaches I've found helpful.

"Dental mercury amalgams are not stable…they undergo CORROSION, and dangerous amounts of MERCURY VAPOR are daily released….that may be inhaled by the lungs and in that way enter the general blood circulation and pass into the whole body. However far more dangerous are similarly released mercurial FUMES, which instead settle down on the mucous membranes in the upper region of the NASAL CAVITY, from where the mercury is transported directly to the brain! These pathways are either by the OLFACTORY NERVES or by the valve-less cranial VENOUS system that presents an open venous communication between the oro-nasal cavity and the brain."—Patrick Stortebecker, M.D., Ph.D.

"Mercuric compounds are the potential sources of the mercuric ion that, at the worst, kills all living things, or, at the very least, causes cellular damage and organ dysfunction. when ingested in any form Mercury produces destructive changes in the mucous membrane linings of the gastrointestinal tract. It enters the blood circulation, travels to the tissues, and then damages literally every cell with which it comes into contact. Mercury molecules, no matter how tiny the amounts that enter the body, cause destruction, particularly in cells of the kidneys, liver, and brain."---Cadorph & Walker

"Worldwide there are over 4000 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?"—Tom Warren

"You wouldn’t take a leaky thermometer, put it in your mouth, and leave it there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Yet that’s exactly what happens when an amalgam filling is installed in your mouth."----Dr Michael Ziff.

"It is sobering to realise that the original "quacks" were dentists who advocated the use of mercury amalgam and that most dentists are still advocating it today.   Quacksalber is the old German word for mercury."

"The maximum amount of mercury that the Environment Protection Agency allows people to be exposed to is 5,000 times smaller than the permissible amount of lead exposure; in other words the EPA apparently considers mercury to be 5,000 times more toxic than lead."---- Marcia Basciano DDS at annual meeting of IAOMT san diego 1994.

Dr Haley, Ph.D. has produced tubulin defects in laboratory cultures of brain tissue by adding low concentration of mercury plus EDTA, a common food additive. Tubulin defects are thought to be the mechanism which produces the neurofibrillary tangles characteristic of Alzheimer’s Disease.(Quicksilver Associates)

Drs Markesbery’s and Ehmann’s experiments have shown there are higher concentrations of mercury in the autopsied brains of patients who died of Alzheimer’s than are present in the autopsied brains of patients who did not have Alzheimer’s.

Haley, Vimy and Lorscheider reasoned that because mercury vapor from amalgam fillings is absorbed into the sinuses and goes through the blood stream directly to the brain, they might obtain a stronger result by exposing the rats to mercury vapor. The team calculated a dose of mercury vapor that would be the rat equivalent of a humans inhaling the vapor from fillings. They exposed six rats to these carefully-measured quantities over a period of 7 days to 24 days. The result was stunning: all six experimental animals treated with mercury vapor deteriorated markedly.When their tissues were examined, all six rats had brain aberrancies like those found in human Azheimers' patients. In Dr Haley’s words, "The results of this experiment are terrifying. I’m getting the rest of my mercury fillings taken out right now, and I’ve asked my wife to have hers replaced too."

"The aluminum industry is gathering together all research documents, marketing promotion documents, and trade association documents for that near future time when individual populations worldwide will wake up to the dangers of its aluminum products. Court actions are inevitable. In the meantime aluminum company executives are attempting to win friends for themselves and the industry. For instance, Edward Truschke, the executive director of the Alzheimer's Association headquarters in Chicago, in response to our multiple inquiries, finally admitted that his organization has received unrestricted grant monies from the Aluminum Association of Canada (ALCAN) and from the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA). He did not acknowledge, but we are aware anyway, that the international Alzheimer's disease medical meeting held in July 1992, in Italy, was sponsored in part by the Aluminum Association of Canada."----Dr Casdorph, M.D. & Dr Morton Walker 

"Our Medical Advisory Panel do not consider it appropriate for the Society to recommend it (chelation) to our members."---Alzheimer’s Disease Society (UK) Caring for dementia.  2001

"We can't put these chelation doctors out of business without your help."---FDA administrator Dr Stuart Nightingale in a speech to the AMA House of Delagates, Honolulu, 1984.

"Since 1952 the medical profession has had the means to reduce or reverse the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease."—Dr Casdorph.

Alzheimer’s drugs: Estimates from around 100 per month. 500,000 X 12 X 100= 600 Million (UK), yearly. Times 4 USA, plus an army of expensive medical support.

FINANCIAL DAILY MAIL 20/7/1998:  Shire scents bonanza from Alzheimer drug.   Shire Pharmaceutical looks set for a bonanza from Galantamine, a drug which was originally refined from daffodils...sales may start in 2000.  Up sharply last week, Shire is valued at 700m.

Many medicines contain aluminium. Antacids contain from 44mg to 400mg per dose. Over the counter buffered aspirin contain up to 44mg. Over the counter antidiarrheal drugs contain up to 600mg per tablet. Louis Blank who recovered from alzheimer’s (disputed of course) was a heavy user of antacids.

"The first case of MS was diagnosed in Paris 1832, and the first amalgam was placed in Paris 1832." Hal Huggins, D.D.S.

"By the time I finished writing Beating Alzheimer’s three other persons in our hometown regained their short term memory following the identical program that reversed my AD. A daughter of a 93-year-old woman wrote that her mother recovered from AD. The daughter used my book as a guide. I am aware of physicians who use my book to help patients regain their short term memory. Several years ago, a physician reversed his own AD and has returned to full time practice. Two nurses reversed schizophrenia. One nurse told me that he felt like he had recovered from general anesthesia. Occasionally someone tells me that I saved his or her life. They also say years, sometimes ten years, are missing from their lives."---Tom Warren

When I wrote, Beating Alzheimer’s, I realized that, at the time, there was not enough evidence nor did I have the credentials, specifically to write the medical procedures that reversed my downward spiral of short term memory loss, exhaustion, cantankerous disposition, depression and the early signs of dementia. My lack of sophistication about medical politics and processes led me to assume physicians would rapidly put an end to AD, not to try to put the very physicians who know the most about reversing AD and chronic disease out of business. But that’s what happened. Anyone who challenges a mind set (paradigm) of the medical establishment is asking for trouble, especially if the primary cause of AD is "iatrogenic" disease. 

"Worldwide, conservatively, more than 20 million people have iatrogenic diseases caused by one medical specialty: dentists. The ADA is fighting a rear guard action to keep the public from learning that dentists, by use of mercury-silver amalgam fillings for decades, have poisoned more than 85 per cent of our population. The ADA has covered up its culpability in the same way breast implant and cigarette manufacturers deny disease connection to those products. Potential economic liability to amalgam manufacturers, their distributors, dentists and the ADA is incalculable."—Tom Warren

"The ADA owes no legal duty of care to protect the public from allegedly dangerous products used by dentists…..Dissemination of information relating to the practice of dentistry does not create a duty of care to protect the public from potential injury."----ADA lawyers.

"In large measure, those martyred by dementia are showing the results of toxicity from mercury, aluminium, lead, cadmium, arsenic and other heavy metals. Their neurons have been poisoned. They are turned into alzheimer’s victims directly through the efforts of dentists who blindly follow the party line of their trade union organisation, the ADA."—Dr Casdorph, M.D.

"On February 1, 1992, the German Ministry of Health declared a ban on silver-mercury fillings. The German announcement contradict the pervasive and fraudulent pronouncements by the ADA…these two organisations blatantly lie when they say silver-amalgam fillings are harmless to patients……(said) merely to protect American dentists from legal assaults by an angry public."—Casdorph.

"Three thousand doctors of the Toxicology Society came together at a medical conference in Seattle, Washington, several years ago to condemn mercury-silver amalgam fillings. Their revelations should have made banner front page headlines all around the world. Just three short stories appeared in the Press."---Tom Warren
