Child Develops Type-1 Diabetes After Dentist Exposes Him to High Levels of Mercury

A lady from Texas sent this message after reading a previous post showing evidence that mercury filling in a mother’s mouth (during pregnancy) can lead to type-1 diabetes in the unborn child:

“My son developed T1D at 8 years old. I had quite a few mercury fillings since I was a teenager. I got another cavity while pregnant.”

Mercury in the mouth vaporizes into the bloodstream via the lungs and bowels. The blood stream is shared with that of her baby. Fortunately, she did not have the cavity filled until after her son was born. Unfortunately…

“When [my son] was a few weeks old, I took him with me to have [the cavity] filled with a mercury filling…. It was a cavity between two teeth. [The dentist] took a long time to place the filling and then could not fit floss between the two teeth when finished. He got agitated and started acting angry as he stuck a device in my mouth to hold it open and then drilled it out (never saying a word to me about what he was doing!)…. He seemed angry at me for his own failings. I was dumbfounded.”

His anger isn’t a big surprise. A study in the 1994 edition of Psychological Reports showed that those with amalgam fillings were more prone to  “expressing anger without provocation” and being “less pleasant, satisfied, happy, secure, and steady.” Whether the dentist had fillings himself doesn’t matter, he was exposing himself to mercury vapor each day of his haphazard dental practice.

While this doctor undertook this dangerous procedure his patient explains:

“My baby was on my chest right near my face. I didn’t even realize what [the dentist] was doing until after. I have always wondered if my baby was exposed to mercury from that dental filling.”

In his book It’s All in Your Head, Dr. Hal Huggins says that he found an operatory (with no safety precautions) averages about 880 micrograms of mercury per square meter when fillings are removed. In the U.S., any workplace above 100 has exceeded the “permissive exposure limit (PEL)” according to the Occupation Healthy and Safety Adminstration. (While The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) recommends nothing above 25.) Now, since not many babies work in chemical factories, I think we can assume a lower limit just might be recommended for a newborn.

I’ve encouraged this mother to take legal action against that dentist. Even by the American Dental Association’s own bizarre guidelines regarding mercury, such a incident (I hope) would be considered negligence causing harm. Not only did her child develop type-1 diabetes, he is also talking about taking his own life. Suicidal thoughts, as cited in a previous post, are another side-effect of mercury poisoning.

I highly encourage everyone to boycott any dental clinic using such toxic material. Fortunately, the toxicity of mercury fillings has now been recognized by the European Union. According to an article on, amalgam use will be banned in all 28 countries of the EU for children under 15 and nursing and pregnant mothers. This takes affect July 1, 2018.

P.S.  In future posts, I’ll write more about what ways to get mercury out of the pancreas, kidneys and brain. For more on the connection between T1D and Hg check out: Mercury Attack: Can Dental Fillings Cause Type-1 Diabetes?

P.P.S. Getting mercury residue out of the body cells is slow, pain-staking work. Getting mercury fillings out of the mouth is quick… but expensive. We’re still raising funds for my wife’s dental surgery. $5, from enough people (about 10,000), is all we need to make this happen. To support the research we are doing or find out more please go to:
