Digital Survivor came across a US National Institutes of Health report that found radio-frequency radiation from wi-fi increases release of toxic mercury from amalgam fillings in teeth.
Any non-NHS dentist will candidly admit that mercury amalgam fillings are barbaric remnants from an age when the professions of surgery and butchery were almost interchangeable. Now wi-fi routers are part of the equation.
The 2016 report, entitled “Effect of radiofrequency radiation from Wi-Fi devices on mercury release from amalgam restorations” says:
Dental amalgam is composed of approximately 50% elemental mercury. Despite concerns over the toxicity of mercury, amalgam is still the most widely used restorative material. Wi-Fi is a rapidly using local area wireless computer networking technology. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that evaluates the effect of exposure to Wi-Fi signals on mercury release from amalgam restorations.
The concentration of mercury in the artificial saliva in the groups was evaluated by using a cold-vapor atomic absorption Mercury Analyzer System. The independent t test was used to evaluate any significant differences in mercury release between the two groups.
Exposure of patients with amalgam restorations to radiofrequency radiation emitted from conventional Wi-Fi devices can increase mercury release from amalgam restorations.
