California community defeats measure requiring disclosure of mercury
from Contra Costa Times
A measure that would have required dentists in Berkeley, Calif., to disclose the composition of fillings each time they are recommended went down to defeat at it's City Council meeting. Instead of the mandate proposed by Councilman Jesse Arreguin, the council voted 6-3, with Arreguin and Councilmen Max Anderson and Kriss Worthington opposing, for a measure authored by council members Linda Maio and Laurie Capitelli to "encourage dentists practicing in Berkeley to consider limiting or transitioning away from the use of dental amalgam."
