As with most conventional medical practitioners, the largest percentage of practicing dentists and dental hygienists are driven by misinformation and myths that have been exposed before but that continue to be promulgated by the profession due to a repetition of ignorance and dismissal of holistic dental practices of which the public are quickly becoming informed.
Dental mercury was first exposed as a health-compromising product in 1840. The dental profession finally overcame the perception that putting toxic mercury in the mouth might be detrimental to human health. Organized dentistry is now mostly abandoning this toxic protocol for fillings, however they continue to deceive millions on the safety of three very dangerous procedures.
1) Root Canals
The toxicity of root canals was disclosed by Mayo’s Clinic and Dr. Weston Price jointly back in about 1910. Close to a century ago. Price’s textbook on root canals, published in 1922, upset the dental associations at that time, and still does today. The American Dental Association (ADA), denies his findings and claims that they have proven root canals to be safe; however, no published data from the ADA is available to confirm this statement. Statements, but no actual research.
Price was concerned about the pathological bacteria found in nearly all root canal teeth of that time. He was able to transfer diseases harbored by humans from their extracted root canal teeth into rabbits by inserting a fragment of a root canal root under the skin in the belly area of a test rabbit.
