Doctors Huggins and Levy, who have spent years studying the toxic effects of dental materials, have written an authoritative book that accomplishes their stated purpose of "making the reader aware of the enormous and wide-ranging effects of dental toxicity." The authors have done an excellent job of describing the medical research in lay terms. They cover dental sources of toxicity, the body's reactions, specific diseases suspected or known to be caused by dental materials, and suggestions for dealing with such toxicity. Although a chapter with more clearly detailed information about alternative dental materials and detoxification methods would have been helpful, this work is well researched and well written.

From the Inside Flap
Dr. Huggins and Dr. Levy assert that a large number of physical disorders are, though often incurable, easily preventable. He proposes that multiple sclerosis, lupus, leukemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinsons disease, many mental disorders including Alzheimers, and even major diseases like breast cancer are caused, in part, by the metal toxins we place in our bodies. Where do these toxins come from and how do they get into our bodies? You may be surprised to find that you have actually to have them put there. These dangerous material mercury, cadmium. Beryllium, nickel, and others -- are used in everyday dentistry to make up the fillings, root canals, and bridgework in our mouths, and are supposed to be safe. But are they?
"Uniformed Consent" presents cases of toxic poisoning of depressed immune systems and inexplicable illnesses all easily traceable to the toxins leaching into the bloodstream from the heavy metals in dental materials. The authors also discuss the hidden truths that the dental industry in American doesnt want to talk about, and the real reason the dangers of these materials have been suppressed and ignored.
Drs. Huggins and Levy implore the reader: Dont leave your health in your dentists hands and assume that all will be fine. Become informed and take an active role in your health. Know what will be implanted in your mouth. You must decide at the out set what is more important to you the life of a filling or your life. Uninformed Consent will give you the facts so that you may take responsibility for your dental and complete health and wellness.

They also go into detail about many other sources of mercury...eye contact lens solution, contraceptives, vaccines, seafood, etc.
If you want to know why we are getting sicker and sicker in this country, then you need to read this book.
#1. Mercury vapor does come out of fillings daily. Mercury fillings called "silver" fillings contain 50% mercury, and about 15% silver. They also contain copper.
#2. Crowns and root canals have been correlated with diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, and Leukemia.
So we have children suffering from a difficult cancer, and Dr. Huggins book is the second book to point to the fact that heavy metals in dental materials used in children, which includes nickel and aluminum has been tied to Leukemia.
Here is the issue. Many people are having their immune systems challenged by mercury fillings, by toxins formed in root canal sealed teeth, which creates a deadly environment, and by being poisoned from heavy metals from crowns or other dental procedures. And they don't know this.
The only small thing missing from this book, is that our body can detoxify the heavy metals, when we are very healthy. So not everyone needs to remove all their mercury fillings. But, if you have a significant disease, like Alzheimers, or multiple sclerosis, the disease was caused or significantly contributed to by the dental materials poisoning your body daily. The title of the book is perfect. UNINFORMED CONSENT. Dental materials were put into our mouths, that are not good for us. This is dreadfully wrong and completely ignorant for dentists to do.Read more ›
