Press Conference - Petition to Parliament

11th February 2009

Anti-dental amalgam campaigner Juliet Pratt is submitting her petition of 1300 signatures, to Green MP Sue Kedgley at a Press Conference in Auckland .

Many supporters including, Dentists and Doctors will be attending, and are calling on the Government to immediately prohibit the use of mercury amalgam dental fillings for children and pregnant women and phase it out entirely by the end of 2013.

Juliet suffered chronic fatigue syndrome for 9 years, which she attributes to the amalgam fillings she had.

"Mercury amalgam is considered hazardous waste after it has been removed. Who can conclusively say it is safe in between when it is in our bodies?" Juliet says.

The US Food and Drug Administration states on its website that when amalgam fillings are placed in teeth or removed from teeth, they release mercury vapour. The vapour is also released during chewing, brushing and having a hot drink. Amalgam fillings are 50% mercury, the most toxic substance on our planet.

Last year the FDA did a swift reversal of its 30-year history of protecting mercury amalgam fillings. Their official website now states "Dental amalgams contain mercury, which may have neurotoxin effects on the nervous systems of developing children and foetuses."

The FDA have been given until July this year, to issue a final ruling to classify dental amalgam.
