Exposure and Mercury poisoning (2)
In reply to Dr Campbell's posting on the connection between electrohypersensitivity
and mercury from dental amalgams, it appears that more needs to be said
on this possibly important topic. There is some evidence that dental amalgam
illness may be a leading cause of electrosensitivity.
It has been hypothesized in the articles mentioned that mercury fillings
act like microantennae, and when the user is sitting in front of a CRT
screen, alterations occur in the electric currents in the mouth (electrogalvanism)
that may have health effects. The electrogalvanism has been shown to accelerate
the mercury release from fillings, and it is also possible that the electrogalvanism
thereby interacts with flora in the mouth to produce mercury aggravated
infections. Thereby a computer screen can give you a mouth infection that
you otherwise would not have due to amalgams, in addition to heightened
There is some further evidence in this story. At the previous 'Workshop
on Electrosensitivity 2001' (www.feb.se/NEWS/Abstracts010927.pdf),
features of patients with related conditions (FMS, CFS, pain syndrome,
El. Sens. and MCS) were compared (An Hypothesis on Neurosomatic Disorders,
ROBERT OLIN, M.D., Professor em. Social medicine, Stockholm, Sweden).
Social Isolation was only found as a common symptom in electrosensitivity.
This fits in very well with the fact that mercury poisoning and sometimes
exposure usually produce extreme shyness and social phobia.
Two other presenters discussed the role of amalgams in electrosensitivity
at the conference: Experience from ten years work with electrosensitive
patients. ULRIKA ÅBERG, M.D., Spec. child & youth psychiatry, Skövde,
Sweden. During my work with amalgam and electrosensitive patients I have
met around 1 200 patients and 300-400 of these patients have electrosensitivity
as their main problem. Approximately 50% of my patients become stronger
and feel better with injections of vitamin B12 - mercury disturbs the
transport of vitamin B12 from the blood to the CNS liquor. Electrosensitive
patients who are also sensitive to light, or have been, may have good
use of PABA, Para-amino-benzoic-acid. During the last year I have understood
the importance of hidden infections and hidden metals in the teeth and
the jaws for the health in general for patients of these categories. That
these infections are teated and these metals taken away may be necessary
for these individuals to recover.
Does removal of dental metals help the electrically sensitive? KARIN ÖCKERT,
D.D.S. Specialist of Periodontology, Göteborg, Sweden. With the description
of two clinical cases it is assumed that electrosensitivity sometimes
might have its cause in the mouth and it is shown that it was possible
to make these patients recover by removal of metals and/or infected teeth.
In evaluating the improvement of electrosensitivity after amalgamremoval
of 42 electrically sensitive patients it is shown that 40% are totally
recovered, 24% are improved, 26% are unchanged and 10% are worse.
When I had my amalgams out I was told a had a mild gum infection, and
since my health has improved, albeit with medication and an emissions-
reduced computer. A body of opinion in Sweden is looking for a direct
connection between amalgams and electrosensitivity. This should be further
investigated, by a direct investigation of the flora in the mouth. What
kind of infection - streptococcus, clostridium? Is the infection becoming
resistant, and converting mercury to methyl mercury? Why do teeth carry
a galvanic charge in the first place, and how could health be effected
by placing these teeth in unusual fields? Certainly children who receive
radio- and chemo- therapy to the head for leukemia develop damage to the
right brain called nonverbal learning disorder, and an altered pattern
of attention that seems to bear some resemblence to altered attention
in mobile phone use. Go the Swedes!
