Dr. Oz Misses Key Point On Mercury Amalgam’s Impact On Human Health
Date:4/8/2013

Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2013

About half of all mercury entering wastewaters comes from dental practices, according to the EPA. It’s via this channel that mercury pollution harms the health of all people, not just those with amalgam fillings. However, an inexpensive piece of equipment – an amalgam separator– can virtually eliminate a dental office’s contribution to this problem.

It’s no secret that elemental mercury, which makes up about half of an amalgam filling, is a known toxin. During dental procedures, small particles of mercury can flow down the drain, bypassing chair side traps and making their way into wastewaters. Though treatment plants capture most of the mercury, about 10% is distributed into the environment via sludge that is either incinerated, applied to the land as fertilizer, or deposited in landfills. From there, mercury finds its way to waterways, where is converts to methylmercury, a neurotoxin that builds up in fish and the mammals that consume them, including humans. Methylmercury has been linked to health and developmental problems, particularly in pregnant women, fetuses and young children.

Fortunately, amalgam separators can solve this problem, eliminating the impact of dental amalgam on the environment. Once installed, separators remove more than 99% of mercury from a practice’s wastewater. They are maintenance-free, other than the annual recycling of the collection container. Though only a dozen states currently require separators, the EPA is working on a new nationwide regulation, which is expected to be announced sometime within the next year.

PureLife offers several models of amalgam separators, all of which will eliminate a practice’s contribution to the mercury waste problem. Dental practices should contact PureLife at 877-777-3303 to speak to a Waste Specialist who will help the office determine the best separator for them.
