Chapter -1-
 The profession of dentistry has been at war with itself since its inception nearly 200 yearsago. Now, as then, there are charges that charlatans have invaded the profession, and thatthey are undermining the scientific standards upon which dentistry is based. Today theAmerican Dental Association charges that any dentist who removes silver amalgamfillings is unethical, since there is no scientific proof that what the dentists have beenputting in our teeth for 200 years causes people to be sick. For you see, if you are sick and take out all your amalgams and get better, its not scientific. For those of you who areconfused by this argument, this book was written.Dentists hold a special position of trust in society. In exchange for certain rights andprivileges, not the least of which is the ability to regulate themselves, we the people canonly go to a licensed dentist for dental work. This arrangement, known as a professionalassociation, was created to protect society at large from dangerous practices.Dentists have a right to be angry about the mercury controversy. If this material has beenaround in North America since 1833 and has been in widespread use, how could itpossibly be dangerous? But there are other dangers in our society: greed, love of money,desire for riches, cash flow, self-interest, net worth, social standing, and many more.Placed against these dangers, we will see that mercury is dangerous. But for dentists thefinancial liability resulting from an admission that amalgams are poisonous is even moredangerous.Mercury is exceedingly toxic, and only radioactive substances are more toxic to life.Look around our society today and try to find someone dying from natural causes. It justdoesn't occur that often anymore. We have “traded off” a natural life for the blessings of technology. Meanwhile scientists assure us that if we just give a little more in taxes anddonations, all the mysterious illnesses of modern life will be cured, by gene therapy orsome other marvelous space-race technology.Most of us are deservedly dubious of these claims, because we instinctively know thatlife is hardy, and deep inside we are sure that it is something poisonous in ourenvironment is making us die unnaturally, if only we can find it. So we give to researchand keep on giving, and hope. Scientists keep looking at our bodies breaking down, andconclude there must be a defect in nature’s plan. But overlooked is the obvious thatpoisoning attacks the central nervous system and the immune system, and leaves usdefenseless against mental illness, heart disease, cancer, alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis,and many more.We are defenseless, and are being given pills and radiation to save us. We are at war(make no mistake, the governments call it a war), and don’t even know who the enemy isbecause of his low-level exposure. He is hidden, and unmasking him is difficult. In 1899,

Dr. Tuthill tried in his treatise on “Mercurial Necrosis” where he listed dozens of recoveries from having fillings removed. The “New Departure” group that first createdamalgam fillings included a quack scientist who said Thomas Edison was a fraud, twocrooks working for the Philadelphia Mint who were involved in the biggest Silver DollarFraud in History, and a California Gold-Rush dentist who later standardized the mercuryfilling to make his fortune.Let’s review the approved history of dentistry, and then we will delve a little bit deeperinto the real people and events that were involved in creating modern amalgam.Cavities in teeth have been filled over the years with a variety of materials: stone chips,turpentine resin, gum, metals;-Arculanus (Giovanni d' Arcoli) recommended gold-leaf fillings in 1848.-The renowned physician Ambroise Pare (1510-1590) used lead or cork to fill teeth.-In the 1700s, Pierre Fauchard (1678-1761), the father of modern dentistry, favored tinfoil or lead cylinders.-Philip Pfaff (1715-1767), dentist to Frederick the Great of Prussia (1712-1786), usedgold foil to cap the pulp.Gold leaf as a filling became popular in the United States in the early nineteenth century;-Marcus Bull of Hartford, Connecticut, began producing beaten gold for dental use in1812.-In 1853 sponge gold was introduced in the United States and England to replace goldleaf.-This was followed by the cohesive, or adhesive, gold introduced by American dentistRobert A. Arthur in 1855.-Gutta percha was used for fillings beginning in 1847.The invention of the power-driven dental drill led to increased demand for fillings and sofor an inexpensive filling material;-Aguste Taveau of Paris, France, developed what was probably the first dental amalgam--in 1816. He used filings from silver coins mixed with mercury.
