Mobile Phones and Mercury

We have been writing about the risks and hazards of EMF for a decade or so by now and as each day passes much more information is divulged about the negative effects of mobile phones and other EMF conveniences.

I am amazed at just how limited the information is that most people have about these items.

Yesterday I made a drive to pick up some special yeast I use in one of my products at a store about 50 miles from where I live.

A big cell tower greets you as you drive into town and an even larger one sits near the store where I needed to go. The first tower caused me some dizziness as I drove by but the second was worse. After I got out of my car and started to walk to the store I was not only so dizzy I could barely walk, but severely nauseous too. This is a college town and it might have been that I felt more like a drunk co-ed on Saturday night. Needless to say, my EMF rebalancer didn't quite to the best rebalancing yesterday.

Now it appears that MRI and microwave radiation emitted from mobile phones significantly release mercury from dental amalgam restoration. Further research is needed to clarify whether other common sources of electromagnetic field exposure may cause alterations in dental amalgam and accelerate the release of mercury.

It might be worthwhile to keep some vitamin C tablets (500mg) handy since vitamin C helps bind up this heavy metal.

It is also a caution to me much more aware of what using mobile phones and WI-FI or microwave ovens mean to your health. Remember that the after effects usually don't show up for 8-12 years.

In the 1st phase of this study, thirty patients were investigated. Five milliliter stimulated saliva was collected just before and after MRI. The magnetic flux density was 0.23 T and the duration of exposure of patients to magnetic field was 30 minutes. In the 2nd phase, fourteen female healthy University students who had not used mobile phones before the study and did not have any previous amalgam restorations were investigated. Dental amalgam restoration was performed for all 14 students. Their urine samples were collected before amalgam restoration and at days 1, 2, 3 and 4 after restoration. The mean +/- SD saliva Hg concentrations of the patients before and after MRI were 8.6 +/- 3.0 and 11.3 +/- 5.3 microg L(-1), respectively (p < 0.01). A statistical significant (p < 0.05) higher concentration was observed in the students used mobile phone. The mean +/- SE urinary Hg concentrations of the students who used mobile phones were 2.43 +/- 0.25, 2.71 +/- 0.27, 3.79 +/- 0.25, 4.8 +/- 0.27 and 4.5 +/- 0.32 microg L(-1) before the amalgam restoration and at days 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively. Whereas the respective Hg concentrations in the controls, were 2.07 +/- 0.22, 2.34 +/- 0.30, 2.51 +/- 0.25, 2.66 +/- 0.24 and 2.76 +/- 0.32 microg L(-1).
