Book Description

Nov. 6 2007
Uninformed Consent presents cases of toxic poisoning--of depressed immune systems and inexplicable illnesses--to toxins entering the bloodstream from the heavy metals in dental materials. The authors also discuss the hidden truths that the dental industry in America doesn't want to talk about, and the real reasons the dangers of these materials have been suppressed and ignored.
Dr.'s Huggins and Levy implore the reader: "Don't leave your health in your dentist's 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 outset 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.

Product Description

From Library Journal

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, Parkinson’s disease, many mental disorders including Alzheimer’s, 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 doesn’t 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: “Don’t leave your health in your dentist’s 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uninformed Consent Feb. 6 2011
By Jared
Format:Paperback
Really important and true science-based information. This book gives moral support to those who do not wish to have mercury (known to highly toxic) fillings, dental appliances containing nickel (a known carcinogen), root canals (a highly radical procedure) or dental implants. Few patients and even fewer dentists realize that many diseases of "unknown origin" may have actually originated in the dental office. These could be diseases such as leukemia, diabetes, arthritis, chronic fatigue, infertility, birth defects, emotional instability, nearsightedness, female problems, breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease. I was told by a dentist that books such as this one are fringe science, but remember, Isaac Newton's calculus and Albert Einstein's relativity were fringe science in the beginning. Personally, I am going to have my "mouthful" of mercury amalgams replaced with composite fillings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Dentist or Teeth May Be Making You Sick Dec 24 2008
Format:Paperback
Recently the FDA was forced to state that mercury in amalgam fillings may leak or contribute towards disease. This vindicates Dr. Huggins tireless campaign to point out the facts.

#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.

It is new window to understanding our environment and to use wisdom in protecting ourselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timely Aid Dec 21 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I was fortunate to read this book before undergoing removal of root-filled teeth and amalgam fillings. My dentist had recommended an implant to replace an extracted root-filled tooth. This book points out the danger of such an immune system challenge (I chose a bridge of biocompatible materials instead) and provides further updates to It's All in Your Head. Especially helpful are the sections on root canals, cavitations and detoxification.
