FDA vs. Over-the-Counter DMSA

Just as we had seen in 2009, the FDA again has declared DMSA to not be a supplement, halting U.S. citizens ability to source it over the counter (OTC) at home. In June, the FDA warned against the use of OTC chelation supplements because there are no FDA approved OTC chelator agents. A check at Vitamin Research Products (VRP) no longer lists DMSA as an available product, and those U.S. based sites that resold DMSA also list the products as out of stock.

A Documentary on Mercury Contamination

I just discovered “Mercury Undercover”, another documentary on the dangers of dental amalgam fillings. From their site:

“Mercury Undercover” exposes the cause and effect of the well-hidden evidence of mercury contamination as seen through the eyes of doctors, scientists, environmental experts and mercury-poisoned survivors. This film exposes the nature of people and the terrible things that some do just for the sake of money. It is a gripping tale that will make you think twice before you eat your next catch-of-the-day or plan your next visit to the dentist’s office.

The documentary is available via Amazon Instant Video, DVD or for a $1.99 rental fee on YouTube. It would be nice if this was also listed on Netflix or iTunes.

Update: I just noticed that it will be available on iTunes on December 10th, 2013. It doesn’t show whether it will be available for rent.

Documentary on Dangers of Dental Amalgams

The documentary “You Put What In My Mouth?” aims to inform the public about the dangers of dental amalgams and how the ADA and FDA seems content on ignoring the issue. Although the documentary is not complete, they have released a trailer to whet your appetite:

This documentary was successfully funded via a Kickstarter campaign.

Meniere’s Disease and Mercury Toxicity

At the “2010 FDA Hearing on Amalgam Safety,” Dr. Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, testified how the removal of his dental amalgam fillings gave him his life back. Following the removal of the dental amalgams, his diagnosed Meniere’s Disease condition completely cleared up.

Meniere’s Disease was one of the first diseases ruled out by every otolaryngologist I visited. While it was definitely good news for me, it still was not comforting knowing that my condition continued going undiagnosed.
