FDA to reexamine use of mercury in dental fillings
from Los Angeles Times
Prodded by consumer and dental activists, the Food and Drug Administration is reviewing the scientific evidence underlying its pronouncement less than 18 months ago that dental fillings containing mercury do not cause harm to patients. An advisory panel of outside experts will meet to reexamine the basis of the FDA's conclusions in the latest chapter of a lengthy battle with groups who believe the agency is understating possible links between the mercury in dental amalgam and neurological and other health problems.
