Mercury Exposure Increases One's Risk For Alzheimer's Disease

A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease in November 2010 states that mercury which is still used today in dental amalgams is likely a contributing factor in Alzheimer's disease. The researchers found that symptoms of Alzheimer's disease were reproduced or accelerated when mercury was introduced. The study found that some autopsy studies revealed increased mercury levels in the brain tissue of Alzheimer's patients. Because of this study researchers are recommending removal of mercury from the public exposure and replacing it with less toxic substances.
