Mercury exposure

The Environmental Protection Agency in the USA has deemed that <0.1 mcg per kilogram of body weight would be considered a safe level of daily mercury exposure; that is, less than 7 mcg daily for a 70 kg person. Consider then that each dental amalgam filling releases 3 – 17 mcg mercury vapour daily, and you can see why a New Year’s detox is a good idea.  Source:  Houston M.

Another source of mercury are vaccines:  according to the U.S. Department of Health and FDA, vaccines contain approximately 25 micrograms of mercury per 0.5 mL dose.  Source:  http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/SafetyAvailability/VaccineSafety/ucm096228.htm 

A clinical detoxification program will achieve lasting results, whereas a do-it-yourself over-the-counter product may actually make things worse.  Arrange a visit with Dagmar to discuss effective detoxification options for you and your family.  Call 5530 1863 today.
