It was something of an about-face for the Food and Drug Administration, which last year settled a lawsuit with anti-mercury activists by posting on its Web site a precaution saying questions remained about whether the small amount of mercury vapor the fillings can release were enough to harm the developing brains of fetuses or the very young.Could heavy lobbying from industry and/or the American Dental Association play a role in this about face?
This follows hot on the heels of this stunning FDA: A-OK
This FDA decision on mercury in fish has alarmed EPA scientists who called it "scientifically flawed and inadequate," reports the Washington Post. Even better, the Environmental Working Group (www.EWG.org) issued a letter to the EPA, saying "It's a commentary on how low FDA has sunk as an agency. It was once a fierce protector of America's health, and now it's nothing more than a patsy for polluters"
Not to mention the mercury in the vaccinations, oh, I mean thimerosol
Thinking about the cumulative affects of all this, oh so good for you mercury?
