Subject: Re: Mercury release from dental amalgam restorations after magnetic resonance imaging and following mobile phone use.

This is extremely interesting and completely in line with the fundamental studies by the Swedish team of Per Högstedt and Thomas Örtendahl!

Ortendahl TW, Hogstedt P, Holland RP, "Mercury vapor release from dental amalgam in vitro caused by magnetic fields generated by CRT's and electrical cutting procedures", Swed Dent J 1991, p 31, abstract 22

I have tried for years and years to get money to repeat their studies and to expand them to mobile phone use - so I am very happy to see it finally to get momentum!

Best regards
