In an act of moral depravity, the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) and the Philadelphia County Dental Society (PCDS) have endorsed strong-arming parents of children with disabilities to force their written consent to mercury fillings.
These dental societies gave their stamp of approval to dentists who deny all treatment to disabled children unless the parents agree to expose their children to mercury.
Acknowledging that not having routine dental care is detrimental to health, the PDA/PCDS witness noted that people with disabilities in Philadelphia have no feasible alternative.
So the PDA and the PCDS are forcing parents of children with disabilities -- even children who already have neurological disorders -- to agree to mercury-laden implants or else no dentist will even clean their child’s teeth.
The evidence suggests that the Pennsylvania Dental Association has been planning its assault on the rights of disabled children for the past year.
Help Support Mercury Free Dentistry
The use of Amalgam for fillings not only pollutes our mouths, it also pollutes our environment. We need to end the use of dental amalgam -- a primitive, pre-Civil War, pollutant that leads to cracked teeth -- for three reasons::
- The new Minamata Convention on Mercury is the game-changer for dental amalgam. Each nation that signs this comprehensive treaty against mercury pollution – now numbering over 100, including the United States – commits itself to scaling down dental mercury without delay.
- Consumers for Dental Choice, who spearheads the campaign against amalgam, brings the Minamata Convention home. Commissioning a Zogby poll, they issued a scathing indictment of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for covering up amalgam's mercury from American parents and consumers – and for putting the US government out of compliance with the pledge it made at Minamata.
- Your financial support for Consumers for Dental Choice is now needed. Working with talented environmental, consumer, and health leaders, Consumers for Dental Choice is launching phase out campaigns in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
