Mercury & Dementia/Alzheimer’s 
 

  • 'The team of researchers conducted a literature review of more than 100 experimental and clinical studies on mercury exposure in cell models, animals and humans. They found that animals exposed to mercury exhibited many of the pathological changes associated with the Alzheimer’s disease, including memory loss, poor cognitive performance and confusion.'

  • 'Experimental studies have found that even smallest amounts of mercury but no other metals in low concentrations were able to cause all nerve cell changes, which are typical for Alzheimer's disease...

  • 'Mercury levels in brain tissues are 2 - 10 fold higher in individuals with dental amalgam...

    The frequency of amalgam application in industrialized countries, clinical studies, experimental studies and the dental state of Alzheimer patients in comparison to controls suggest a decisive role for inorganic mercury in the etiology of Alzheimer's disease.'

Mercury and Parkinson's Disease
 

  • 'The patients exposed to dental amalgam filling were 1.583 times more likely to develop PD afterward compared to their non-exposed counterparts.'

  • 'A survey (also from Taiwan) on more than 20,000 individuals revealed the impact of dental amalgam on the development of Parkinson’s disease. Patients with amalgam fillings had a significantly higher risk of PD after adjusted hazard ratio HR = 1.583, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.122 ± 2.234, p = 0.0089) than those who did not.'

  • 'Ngim and Devathasan have done a case control study among the multiethnic population of Singapore. They tested the hypothesis that a high level of body burden mercury is associated with an increased risk of Parkinson's disease. In 54 cases of idiopathic Parkinson's disease and 95 hospital-based controls, detailed interviews were completed... The researchers found that there was a clear monotonic dose-response association between blood mercury levels and Parkinson's disease.'

  • 'Research by Redhe and Pleva published in 1993 highlighted two examples from over 100 patient cases evaluating the immunological effects of dental amalgam.  They suggested that amalgam removal generates beneficial results in some cases of MS.  As another example, a study by Huggins and Levy published in 1998 indicated that removing dental amalgams, when conducted with other clinical treatments, altered the photolabeling characteristics of cerebrospinal fluid proteins in individuals with MS.'

  • 'As far back as 1996 it was shown that the lesions produced in the myelin sheath of axons in cases of multiple sclerosis were related to excitatory receptors on the primary cells involved called oligodendroglia. The loss of myelin sheath on the nerve fibers characteristic of the disease is due to the death of these oligodendroglial cells at the site of the lesions (called plaques)...

    Some common exposures that cause such proliferation of such excitotoxins, resulting in MS, are mercury and aspartame, with additional effects from MSG and methanol.'

Mercury and Mother/Child Exposure
 

  • 'Maternal amalgam fillings lead to a significant increase of mercury levels in fetal and infant body tissues including the brain. Furthermore, placental, fetal and infant mercury body burden correlates with the number of amalgam fillings of the mothers.

    Mercury levels in amniotic fluid and breast milk also significantly correlate with the number of maternal amalgam fillings.

Mercury & Cancer
 

Mercury & ADHD and Autism
 

  • '- Prenatal mercury exposure, measured through samples of cord blood, is associated with ADHD symptoms in children. 

    - A systematic review of 44 studies concluded that mercury levels were significantly higher in the whole blood, red blood cells, and brains of autistic subjects compared to controls. 

    - Mercury content in ambient air is linked to an increased prevalence of autism in children. 

    - Even low levels of mercury are harmful to the developing brain and have been associated with learning disabilities.'

  • 'Researchers report that children who are exposed to higher levels of mercury in the womb are more likely to exhibit attention problems, hyperactivity, and other ADHD symptoms when they're 8 years old.

    The study included roughly 600 mothers and children from New Bedford, Massachusetts. The researchers measured prenatal mercury exposure by analyzing samples of the mothers' hair shortly after birth, and found that a child's risk of ADHD symptoms increased by 40% to 70% past a certain exposure threshold (1 microgram per gram).'

Mercury & Heart Disease
 

  • '- Mercury levels in the hair are predictors of the levels of oxidized LDL (low-density lipoprotein) that are frequently found in atherosclerosis lesions and are associated with atherosclerosis disease and acute coronary insufficiency...

    - The inactivation of paraoxonase causes dysfunctional HDL to reduce reverse cholesterol transport.

    - vascular effects of mercury include increases in oxidative stress and inflammation, reductions in oxidative defense, thrombosis, and mitochondrial dysfunction, depolarization, and autoxidation of the inner mitochondrial membrane.

  • 'Both ionic and organic mercury accumulate in the heart and has been associated with elevated blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythms, including tachycardia and ventricular heart rhythms, and increased heart attack.

    - Mercury promotes free radical generation; it inactivates the body’s natural antioxidant glutathione, and it binds with selenium, thus making it unavailable as an antioxidant and component of glutathione peroxidase

    - The researchers also point out that studies have discovered a clear correlation between the number of amalgam tooth fillings and the risk of heart attack. Selenium and Vitamin E have both been found to have a protective effect against mercury toxicity. 

    - The clinical consequences of mercury toxicity include hypertension, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, increased carotid IMT and obstruction, cerebrovascular accident, generalized atherosclerosis, and renal dysfunction with proteinuria. .

    - Numerous studies have reported tachycardia, high blood pressure and heart palpitations after acute exposure to elemental mercury vapor.

    - The overall vascular effects of mercury include oxidative stress, inflammation, thrombosis, vascular smooth muscle dysfunction, endothelial dysfunction, dyslipidemia, immune dysfunction, and mitochondrial dysfunction.

    - As is known from autopsy studies for those with chronic mercury exposure, such as amalgam fillings, mercury also bio-accumulates in the heart in addition to accumulating in the brain, CNS, and hormone glands

This is a topic I am particularly passionate about especially discovering that Mercury compromises Endothethial walls (the thin membrane on the inside of our vessels). When compromised Dr Linus Pauling (2x Nobel Prize Winner) suggests that the body makes LipoProtein(a) to plug the holes.  LipoProtein(a) I discovered - is not tested for as a norm by Doctor's anywhere in the world - yes sadly- not even in New Zealand.

If you want to FIND OUT MORE go to my LipoProtein(a).guru website and check out the information there to see if you or your loved ones need to get tested! 

Do you need to be checked for LipoProtein(a)?

 

Hop over to the LipoProtein(a).guru site to find out more about this very dangerous form of Cholesterol that is not tested for in New Zealand or see if you are interested in joining our Holistic Healthy Hearts Free Community to find out more in-depth knowledge on how Mercury is linked to specific disorders & latest news/ clinical trials.
