This author calls a 'homeopathic doctor' an authority. And he ignores the proven benefits that a *low* level of fluoride has for the integrity of teeth that are less than optimally maintained.

Agreed, there are good dentists, bad dentists and unprintably rapacious dentists, but the trick is not to be intimidated by them. Oh, and brush your teeth daily since a small child, avoid leaving sweet stuff in your mouth etc etc.

Due care, please ??

Elements of Danger: Protect Yourself Against the Hazards of 27 Jun. 2002
By Cassandra Barnes - Published on
Format: Paperback
Medical journalist Morton Walker, D.P.M., has an impressive list of credentials. He's written more than 70 books, fourteen of which were international bestsellers, has published more than twenty-two hundred magazine and newspaper articles, and appeared in numerous TV and radio talk shows. He's also received several awards and honors from various medical groups.
In his latest book, Elements of Danger: Protect Yourself Against the Hazards of Modern Dentistry, Dr. Walker takes on the dental profession. He focuses on the practice of using metal fillings, but also discusses other procedures, like root canals.
He says he found a "paradox, for the nature of dental care among industrialized nations has our dental health providers reacting to disease rather than keeping people's mouths functioning healthfully and well." He maintains that most dentists don't look at the patient as a complete individual or dental health as a part of overall good health.
Dr. Walker offers a thorough discussion of the potential problems of using metal fillings, especially those containing mercury. He includes a questionnaire that will help readers determine if their fillings are adversely affecting their health. He lists thirty symptoms of metal toxicity, including memory problems, depression, insomnia, heartburn, headaches, and fatigue.
Root canals can also lead to myriad health problems, particularly infection which can affect other parts of the body, and deterioration of the jawbone. He also includes a section on the dangers of fluoridation, reminding readers that fluoride is "an industrial waste product commonly sold as poison for killing rats and insects." He notes that the Food and Drug Administration now requires a warning label on all fluoridated toothpastes, advising consumers to contact a Poison Control Center if the toothpaste is accidently swallowed.
The final section of the book describes natural ways of achieving and maintaining good dental health, including guidelines for choosing a dentist that uses safe and non-toxic procedures. Dr. Walker also includes a list of resources.

Elements of Danger is must reading for those who have had or are contemplating metal fillings, root canals, or fluoridation. Get a copy for yourself, and an additional copy for loved ones who have had dental work, especially those with unexplained symptoms of illness.

Get the Mercury Out! 1 July 2000
By B. A. Phillips - Published on
Format: Paperback
Elements of Danger is a well written well documented book on the hazards of Mercury fillings and root canal cavitations. This is the first book of it's kind to include root canal and wisdom teeth cavitations along with mecury fillings. I believe this new technology is the answer to many peoples prayers. If you have an ailment and can't find a cause, read this book I did and it sure saved my life. After reading this book and battling cancer for two years, I understood what had gone wrong with my body. I decided to have my mercury fillings out and wisdom teeth cavitations cleaned out. I am now cancer free. Yes I said it CANCER free. It took only six weeks for my cancer to disappear. I would never have believed it if it didn't happen to me. Read this book and you too can learn what I learned too. Thank You! Morton Walker for writing a well researched and documented book. B. Phillips

Telling the truth 9 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
can often get a person into trouble. I don't know who wrote the 1 star reviews - presumably dentists, or morons who think that modern science is trustworthy.
I was a dental assistant in the military in the US, and what I do know is that many substances that dentists use are toxic, particulary that old standby, flouride, which is a derivative of aluminum and may in fact be responsible for the rise in Alzheimers cases in this country.
As a dental assistant, I was required to take any extra mercury amalgam and put it into a cup of glycerine. This is in order that the mercury fumes won't escape as quickly and overexpose the staff (including Dr. Pain himself). One then wonders why the dental community doesn't mind sticking this stuff in your mouth, forever.
Another danger is overexposure to x-rays - did you ever wonder why the assistant gets the hell out of the room and behind protective cover when taking your x-ray? Yes, overexposure - but we still don't know how much is too much.
This book needs to be read by dental patients everywhere, because whenever one gets any sort of medical treatment, in addition to the hoped for outcome of improvement, they are also exposing themselves to all sorts of additional risks.

The Danger in Our Mouths 4 Mar. 2012
By Jose Miguel Reyes Pulles - Published on
Verified Purchase
Considered "the most prolific and reliable writer of information about alternative healing methods, holistic medicine, and orthomolecular nutrition of the twentieth century," (Dr. Julian Whitaker, in the Foreword) with seventy-three books published, including fourteen worldwide best-sellers, and the winner of prestigious awards, Dr. Walker assumes in this book the task of exposing the numerous and insidious ways the current standard practices of mainstream dentistry damage our health, contributing to the causes of many of the numerous degenerative diseases and symptoms of "unknown" origin that currently plague humanity.

Dealing with mercury amalgam, root canals, cavitations, and much more, this book is full of facts, concepts and ideas. Hundreds of footnoted references to books and journals, anecdotes, interviews and historical vignettes distinguish his writing, enlightening and enticing the reader into taking charge of one's health.

(This is the review that appears in my article Death is Lurking in Your Mouth (Kindle Edition), which is an overview of amalgam, root canals and cavitations.)
