    Default FDA Considers Ban on Mercury Amalgam Fillings

    By Dr. Edward Group on 07/16/2011

    Dr. Jeff Shuren, head of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiologic Health, confirmed that they have”reconvened” the scientific advisory panel to look into whether or not mercury amalgam fillings are safe. However, he did not indicate when a decision would be made, or what action the FDA will take. In his words:

    Dr. Jeff Shuren, FDA official:
    “I empathize with all the people who have experienced medical problems, whatever the cause may be. We take it seriously, which is why we’ve reconvened our scientific advisory panel.” [1]

    Despite previous studies, which have shown mercury amalgam fillings to be relatively safe, FDA officials have publicly agreed to reopen their preexisting investigation into its potential long-term health risks. While only a small victory for those concerned, it’s at least a step in the right direction.
