WASHINGTON, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With a treaty on mercury to be signed next month, concern is growing that toxic mercury fillings will be dumped into Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. In a letter to U.S. manufacturer Dentsply, 62 health, social justice, and environmental groups from 40 nations and six continents ask its president, Bret Wise, to cease selling dental amalgam into developing nations.  

The letter, http://www.toxicteeth.org/letter-with-62-ngos-40-nations.aspx, (French http://www.toxicteeth.org/francais-lettre-a-dentsply.aspx;  Spanish  http://www.toxicteeth.org/espanol-letter-to-dentsply.aspx) is organized by the World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry, www.toxicteeth.org

The new Minamata Convention on Mercury,   http://www.unep.org/hazardoussubstances/MercuryNot/MercuryNegotiations/tabid/3320/language/en-US/Default.aspx, will be signed in Minamata, Japan, on October 10.
