~ Call for Papers to IBCMT members ~

Dear Colleagues worldwide,

We are physicians from many different countries who have joined IBCMT.

To make IBCMT a platform for patients from all around the world, it is necessary to have informations about the concerns of chronic metal burdens and chelation in different languages. So more customers visiting the IBCMT website including journalists/colleagues can get informations in their native language.

We want to call you to send articles in your native language to the IBCMT secretariat. You can write your own article or you can translate articles from the IBCMT website/Bulletin Board.

These articles will be organized in a separate section on our IBCMT-website.

The authors are responsible for the content of their own articles, but these papers should not deviate too much from IBCMT’s conception.

James Siow gave the advice, that an English version of any new native language text should be posted together with the original on the website. This is possible for example by using Google translator.

We look forward to your cooperation to make IBCMT a source of information for the concerns of chronic metal burden for patients worldwide.

Kind regards
Peter Jennrich

Council of Europe calls for
“restricting or prohibiting the use of amalgams.”

ENGLISH

Council of Europe calls for “restricting or prohibiting the use of amalgams.”

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution on 27 May 2011 urging its 47 member countries to start “restricting or prohibiting the use of amalgams as dental fillings.” Deputy Jean Huss, Luxembourg’s representative to the Council of Europe (not to be confused with the European Union), drafted the meticulously researched report that explains two major reasons behind this call to action:
  1. Amalgam is a health threat: “...amalgams are the prime source of exposure to mercury for developed countries, also affecting embryos, foetuses (through the placenta) and children (through breastfeeding). Exposure to mercury can seriously affect the health of patients and dental professionals…”


  2. Amalgam is an environmental threat: “...between 60 and 90 tonnes of mercury from dental surgeries are released into and contaminate Europe’s atmosphere, surface waters and soil every year.”

Known as “Europe’s Third Parliament,” the Council of Europe encompasses all of Europe, not just the 27 E.U. nations, but Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Switzerland, the Caucuses, all of the Balkans, and all of Scandinavia.

The Council of Europe’s ground-breaking resolution will have a favorable impact on the ongoing mercury treaty negotiations. With this resolution, the Council of Europe joins the growing international call for the amalgam phase-out that is already endorsed by the African region, the Arab League, and the United States.

The next session for the mercury treaty negotiations will be in Nairobi on October 30.

Betreff: Amalgam-Verbot/Prohibiting: Europa?

Europarat fordert "Einschränkung oder Verbot der Anwendung von Amalgam"

Die Parlamentarische Versammlung des Europarats nahm am 27. Mai 2011 eine Resolution an, in der seine 47 Mitgliedstaaten gedrängt werden, mit "Einschränkung oder Verbot von Amalgam als Zahnfüllungsmaterial" zu beginnen.

Der Abgeordnete Jean Huss, Repräsentant Luxemburgs im Europarat (nicht zu verwechseln mit der Europäischen Union), erstellte den sorgfältig recherchierten Report, in dem zwei wesentliche Gründe für diesen Aufruf genannt werden:
  1. Amalgam ist eine Gefahr für die Gesundheit: "... Amalgam ist die wichtigste Quelle der Quecksilberbelastung in den entwickelten Ländern und schädigt u.a. den Embryo, den Fötus (durch die Plazenta) und Kinder (beim Stillen). Die Belastung durch Quecksilber kann die Gesundheit von Patienten und zahnärztlichem Personal gravierend beeinträchtigen..."


  2. Amalgam ist eine Gefahr für die Umwelt: "... zwischen 60 und 90 Tonnen Quecksilber werden jährlich aus den Zahnarztpraxen freigesetzt und kontaminieren Europas Atmosphäre, Oberflächenwasser und Erdreich."

Bekannt als "Europas drittes Parlament", umfasst der Europarat das gesamte Europa, nicht nur die 27 EU-Staaten, sondern auch Russland, Ukraine, Türkei, Schweiz, die Länder des Kaukasus, des Balkans und Skandinaviens.

Die bahnbrechende Resolution des Europarats wird einen positiven Einfluss auf die laufenden Verhandlungen über einen Quecksilbervertrag ausüben. Mit dieser Resolution folgt der Europarat dem wachsenden internationalen Ruf nach einem Amalgam-Ausstieg, der bereits von der afrikanischen Region, den arabischen Ländern und den Vereinigten Staaten befürwortet wird.

Die nächste Sitzung der Verhandlungen über einen Quecksilbervertrag beginnt am 30. Oktober 2011 in Nairobi.

The small study we launched in India is changing the face of pollution and lack of accountability in that country.

Dear Grace

Thanks for your faithful work for IBCMT and remembering to alert us when there are articles worthy of dissemination.

I have been progressively amazed how the small study we launched in India is changing the face of pollution and lack of accountability in that country.

Below are a number of links - the first confirms that the central government has now officially started to seal hand pumps in Punjab and the article reported on in the link records the landmark closure of ground water pumps in the town of Faridkot, where this all started with the 400 odd disabled children 3 years ago! The second records the work of a Punjabi, Sukhi Singh, now an American citizen and prominent business man, who had read about the plight of his Punjabi relatives and formed an awareness group in the USA, which targets the plight of Punjabi's and brings awareness of the dearth of illnesses, notably cancers, infertility, deformity and retardation.

Then I also wish to bring to the attention of members a very meaningful initiative in India, which targets toxicity and we need to work towards seeing such initiatives replicated in all countries worldwide.

So, below find the critical links.

Best wishes

Speech at Fremont Gerrie, California on Malwa Cancer, Punjab Water Contamination, Environmental disaster and fast declining reproductive health of Punjabis Sunday, May 22, 2011 (Fremont, California-USA) Punjab Foundation took the case of the Malwa Cancer, Water Contamination, Environmental disaster and fast declining reproductive health of Punjabis in the sangat's court of Fremont Gurudwara Sahib. The power point presentation and speech of Sukhi Chahal's , who is a founder of Punjab Foundation was so emotional and powerful that some females of the sangat cried upon knowing the ground realities of the increasing number of Childless Couples, Spontaneous Abortions, Premature Births, Low Weight Births, Early Childhood Deaths, Congenital Malformations, Menstrual Disorders, Ovary and Uterus Tumors; Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart and Blood Vessel Diseases, Bone and Joint Diseases, Allergies, Asthma and Cancers which are the well-known effects of Water Contamination and Environmental Toxicity which is visibly on the rise in Punjab. He reminded the Sangat to Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Punjab Foundation, (http://www.punjabfoundation.org) based in the USA's technology hub of Silicon Valley in Northern California, is a non-profit organization (501c3-pending IRS approval) dedicated to raise the awareness among the masses about the prevailing problem of increase in number of cases of Cancer and large number of other diseases which are prevalent in Punjab more so in the Malwa region.

Former Punjab state Health Minister Laxmi Kanta Chawla had admitted during Assembly Session on March 7, 2010 that between 2001 and 2009, the total number of cancer patients detected in the rural areas numbered 23,427, of which 16,730 died. At present, as many as 6,000 cancer patients were under treatment. According to well-informed sources, the actual numbers of deaths and suffering patient are much higher that admitted by the Punjab Government. Health scenario in Punjab has worsened rapidly in the last few decades. Evidence up to now clearly indicates that environmental toxicity is at its root. Excessive use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, heavy metals, other industrial toxins, excessive fluorides in the water, plastic based chemicals, chemicals from the coal based thermal power plants and uranium are being incriminated for making the environment and food chain highly toxic. The surface water as well as ground water has been grossly contaminated by the above mentioned sources of toxicity. The Malwa area of Punjab has emerged as the epicenter of the disease and has come to be known as the cancer belt of Punjab.

According to a study conducted by a UK-based NGO, The Malwa belt of Punjab has the highest number of breast cancer cases in Punjab. The Cattle and other animals are also exhibiting similar disease pattern. Wild animals are fast dying and disappearing. Many species of the birds are either extinct or their numbers have drastically fallen. Same is the fate of small friendly animals like honey bee, earth worm, ghumaar, cheechak wauhti, jugnu and many more. It is expected also because the basic environment and the source of food and water are the same for animals as well as humans.

Instead of asking for any financial help for their Punjab Foundation or anyone else, Mr. Sukhi Chahal requested the sangat of Silicon Valley of California to take an opportunity for a lifetime to make a difference in the lives of your loved ones in the Punjab villages. He requested the NRI Punjabi diaspora to adopt a village to conduct free mammograms, pap's smear and biopsy through cancer detection & awareness camps to promote early detection of Breast, Cervix and Oral Cancer to save many lives who cannot afford. Request was made to Sponsor the Cancer Mobile Breast Cancer Detection Unit by Roko Cancer which cost $ 1000.00 per village. He mentioned Shiv Khera's famous quote that "It is not the activity of the rascals, but the inactivity of good people that destroys the society." He said that this is precisely is happing in our Punjabi society. Mr. Chahal reminded the sangat that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a small step and never forgets where you want to go but more importantly - never forget where you came from. The following other requests were made to Public:
  • Adopt a village and provide clean, safe drinking Water solution

  • Support Baba Farid Center for Special Children, Faridkot (which is taking care of more than 200 mentally disabled kids) to cure autism, cerebral palsy and neurological disorder in the kids • Support the credible NGO's like Kheti Virasat Mission for their campaign to Save Water, Soil and Environment of Punjab.

  • Sponsor Environmental Awareness Campaigning Mobile System to create public awareness about the effects of pesticides and GM crops, particularly in rural areas

  • Support Baba Balbir Singh Seechewal for anti-river pollution campaign

  • Sangat was requested to contact Sukhi Singh Chahal of Punjab Foundation for more information by calling +1 408-497-4100 or my email at sukhi@punjabfoundation.org

VERY EMOTIONAL: Please listen to the recording of RadioFM Vancouver discussion and reconsider your social responsibilities.

BBC Report: Fish Oils Prevent Mental Illness
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8490937.stm

An international team from Austria, Australia and Switzerland tested the treatment of using fish oils in 81 people deemed to be at particularly high risk of developing psychosis. Their high risk was down to a strong family history of schizophrenia, or similar disorders, or them already showing mild symptoms of these conditions themselves.

For the test, half of the individuals took fish oil supplements (1.2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids) for 12 weeks, while the other half took only a dummy pill. Neither group knew which treatment they were receiving.

Dr Paul Amminger and his team followed the groups for a year to see how many, if any, went on to develop illness. Two in the fish oil group developed a psychotic disorder compared to 11 in the placebo group. [IMAGINE if they kept them on it for the whole year instead of just 12 weeks!]

They believe the omega-3 fatty acids found in the supplements may alter brain signaling in the brain with beneficial effects.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, AUGUST 31, 2009

Media Contacts: Angela Babb, (651) 695-2789, ababb@aan.com.

AAN Collaborates with CDC on H1N1 Vaccine Safety Monitoring

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) are requesting neurologists to report any possible new cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) following 2009 H1N1 flu vaccination using the CDC and U. S. Food and Drug Administration Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

It is not anticipated that the 2009 H1N1 vaccine will have an increased risk of GBS. However, out of an abundance of caution, and given that GBS may be of greater concern with any pandemic vaccine because of the association of GBS with the 1976 swine flu vaccine, the CDC and AAN are asking neurologists to report any potential new cases of GBS after-vaccination as part of the CDC’s national vaccine safety monitoring campaign.

The Academy plans to reach neurologists and other health care professionals to encourage reporting cases of GBS following vaccination. “The active participation of neurologists is going to be critical for monitoring for any possible increase in GBS following 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccination,” said Orly Avitzur, MD, MBA, FAAN, who is leading the AAN effort. Resource materials, including upcoming webinars, will be available on AAN.com.

All neurologists nationwide who encounter patients with adverse events post-vaccination should use the CDC and FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to report their observations. Information on VAERS and case report forms will be available on AAN.com and at the VAERS website at http://vaers.hhs.gov.

The 2009 H1N1 vaccine is currently in production. Vaccination among high-risk groups – including infants, children, and young adults ages six months through 24 years, pregnant women, adults 25 and older with underlying health conditions, and health care workers – will begin this fall and will continue through the flu season.

Neurologists are doctors who specialize in treating neurologic disorders such as GBS, a rare disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system, causing tingling and weakness in the arms and legs. Most GBS cases are treatable, but a few can be fatal.

For more information on GBS, visit the AAN’s website for the public at http://www.thebrainmatters.org. For more information on the 2009 H1N1 vaccine, visit the CDC’s website at http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu. In addition, the AAN guidelines regarding the treatment of GBS can be found at http://www.aan.com/practice/guideline/.

The American Academy of Neurology, an association of more than 21,000 neurologists and neuroscience professionals, is dedicated to promoting the highest quality patient-centered neurologic care through education and research. A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing, treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system such as epilepsy, dystonia, migraine, Huntington’s disease, and dementia.

Experts Differ Over Effects of Uranium
Anjali Singh Deswal - Tribune News Service
Bathinda, August 4, 2009

Download This Article - (MS-Word 24kb

Tolerance Level for Cadmium in Food Reduced

After the appearance of reports in the media about uranium not possibly being the reason for cancer in the Malwa belt of Punjab, some experts state that this is a wrong message being conveyed and would hinder the possible studies and tests to ascertain the cause of cancer in Malwa, which has not been done by the government yet.

“It was stated recently that Dr H.S. Virk, nuclear physicist, said uranium was not possibly the cause of cancer in Malwa. He has not done any research on uranium. One day, he states that uranium is not the cause and the next day, he says that uranium is the cause. I tested 90 samples and they all stated that water is contaminated with uranium and heavy metals in Malwa," said Dr Surinder Singh from GNDU, who is known to have conducted detailed research in the Malwa region for uranium.

Dr GS Dhillon, who has been with the irrigation and research institute at Amritsar and Punjab irrigation department for many years, stated that Bathinda witnessed a transformation since the two thermal power plants were set up here.

A higher incidence of cancer was reported after uranium was detected in the Malwa region (studies done by GNDU), and lack of proper treatment available in Bathinda made the problem worse.

Presence of uranium makes it difficult to supply clean drinking water to the villagers. It was stated by the experts recently that even RO plants installed by the state government are not effective in removing uranium and heavy metal toxicity in water.

"There were 107 cases of cancer reported in the Tawandi Sabo area and 80 were women. It was reported that the village pond at Jajjal village was filled with filthy water which was consumed by the cattle. The village was supplied with filtered canal water, which has become badly contaminated. The water in the village was found to have 59.3 mg/litre uranium. Other heavy metals like arsenic selenium, mercury, chromium and now radio elements like uranium have been found in water," Dr Dhillon stated.

Studies by the Kota Research Centre and Bhaba Atomic Research Centre confirm uranium's presence in Punjab.

The problem which should be answered is that experts have given different reasons for uranium's presence in Malwa. The experts of GNDU say that uranium could have come from Tosham hills in Haryana where granite rocks are found which have high radioactivity.

Another reason is environmental changes caused by waste generated by the thermal plants in Bathinda since 1970.

"Currently there are no rules and regulations made to monitor and regulate the environmental impact of fly ash ponds. In Bathinda, these ponds have created health problems due to waste from the ash ponds seeping into the groundwater," Dr Dhillon stated.

Tolerance Level for Cadmium in Food reduced
Due to the nephrotoxicity of Cadmium, European governmental agencies for food safety (the equivalent of the US Food and Drug Administration) recommend that the weekly cadmium intake should not exceed 2.5mcg/kg body weight. The previous tolerance level was 7mcg/kg body weight per week. To our knowledge, Australia still recognizes 7mcg/kg BW/week as tolerance level.
http://www.pressrelations.de/new/standard/dereferrer.cfm?r=375823
For the general world population, average daily cadmium intake, from all sources, is in the range of 10-25 µg/day and has decreased steadily over the past 20 years. Smoking doubles the average daily intake. The tolerable daily cadmium intake established by the World Health Organization (WHO) is 60 µg/day for adult women and 70 µg/day for adult men.

Gentle Detox with Vitamin/Nutrient Infusions
Initial analytical data as compiled by Micro Trace Minerals indicate that the Vitamin/Mineralinfusion as written up by Dr. VanderSchaar in his IBCMT Textbook (www.ibcmt.com) provides a gentle alternative to synthetic chelating agents.

High Arsenic concentration in baseline urine can be caused by fish or algae intake.

Subject: Listening To Music Increases Blood Flow

Authors: Miller M, Beach V, Mangano C, Vogel RA.

November 20, 2008

Recent study results suggest that laughing and listening to music that makes people feel joyful can help to improve blood vessel function.

Michael Miller and colleagues studied the effect of different music on 10 volunteers. While the volunteers were listening to the music the researchers measured how well their blood vessels responded to a sudden increase in blood flow caused by the release of a blood pressure cuff.

Results showed that when the volunteers listened to music that made them feel joyful their blood vessels dilated by 26%. In comparison, listening to music that made the volunteers feel anxious caused blood vessels to dilate by 6%. Laughter was also found to improve blood flow. Listening to a comedy tape caused blood vessels to dilate by 19%.

Association of Environmental Toxicants and Conduct Disorder in U.S. Children:
NHANES 2001-2004 http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/577047_print

Environ Health Perspect. 2008;116(7):956-962.
©2008 National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences - Posted 08/19/2008 - Abstract and Introduction

Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the association of tobacco smoke and environmental lead exposure with conduct disorder (CD).

Methods: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2001-2004 is a nationally representative cross-sectional sample of the noninstitutionalized U.S. population. We examined the association of prenatal tobacco, postnatal tobacco, and environmental lead exposure with CD in children 8-15 years of age (n = 3,081). We measured prenatal tobacco exposure by parent report of cigarette use during pregnancy, and postnatal tobacco using serum cotinine levels. We assessed lead exposure using current blood lead concentration. Parents completed the Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children to determine whether their children met criteria of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV) for CD.

Results: Overall, 2.06% of children met DSM-IV criteria for CD in the past year, equivalent to 560,000 U.S. children 8-15 years of age. After adjustment, prenatal tobacco exposure was associated with increased odds for CD [odds ratio (OR) = 3.00; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.36-6.63]. Increased blood lead levels (fourth vs. first quartile) and serum cotinine levels (fifth vs. first quintile) were associated with an 8.64-fold (95% CI, 1.87-40.04) and 9.15-fold (95% CI, 1.47-6.90) increased odds of meeting DSM-IV CD criteria. Increasing serum cotinine levels and blood lead levels were also associated with increased prevalence of CD symptoms (symptom count ratio, lead: 1.73; 95% CI, 1.23-2.43; symptom count ratio, cotinine: 1.97; 95% CI, 1.15-3.40).

Conclusions: These results suggest that prenatal tobacco exposure and environmental lead exposure contribute substantially to CD in U.S. children.

Diabetes: Tap water may be a major cause

21 August 2008

The water we drink from our taps may be an unsuspected cause of type II diabetes, the ‘lifestyle’ disease that can lead to heart problems and even death.

Although doctors have thought the disease is brought on by poor diet and lack of exercise, scientists believe that low levels of inorganic arsenic that are found in all our public drinking water may well be another cause.

Researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore have discovered that diabetics have a 26 per cent higher level of arsenic in their urine than healthy people. Overall, people with higher levels of arsenic have an almost four times greater risk of developing type II diabetes, they conclude.

The 788 people who took part in the study all live in areas of low and moderate levels of arsenic in their water supply, which suggests that the association could be even stronger in regions where arsenic levels are higher. In the USA, around 13 million people live in areas where inorganic arsenic levels in the public water supply are above levels regarded by the US Environmental Protection Agency as safe.

Inorganic arsenic, which enters the water supply from natural mineral deposits, can increase levels of glucose and insulin, and interfere with the uptake of glucose. Earlier studies – in Taiwan, Bangladesh and Mexico – had already established a link between arsenic in water and diabetes.

The Johns Hopkins researchers are also concerned that arsenic may cause cancer, heart disease and reproductive problems.

Subject: Cholesterol Screening for Kids
Date: 07-16-2008
Author: Jenny Thompson

In case you haven't heard the reports this morning, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is today recommending cholesterol screening for kids as young as two if there are weight issues or a family history of heart attacks or high cholesterol.

And if the kids have high cholesterol levels? Don't hesitate – medicate!

According to the New York Times, the AAP is backed up 100 percent by "proponents."

NY Times: "Proponents say there is growing evidence that the first signs of heart disease show up in childhood." And: "For some children, cholesterol-lowering drugs, called statins, may be their best hope of lowering their risk of early heart attack, proponents said."

Best hope!? Insanity!

Of course, "proponents" is just a fuzzy word for medical mainstreamers who never met a health concern they wouldn't medicate.

One of those proponents is Dr. Jatinder Bhatia, a member of the AAP nutrition committee, who told the Times: "The risk of giving statins at a lower age is less than the benefit you're going to get out of it."

That's the standout quote that rattled my rafters this morning. Why? Because the evidence to back up that quote is miniscule. And that's being charitable. And Dr. Bhatia knows it. In fact, after his bold risk/benefit comment, he completely weakened his argument by telling the Times there is not "a whole lot" of data on pediatric use of cholesterol-lowering drugs.

And THAT should have been the leadoff message this morning: Based on not a whole lot of data, the AAP is recommending widespread use of drugs for very young children.

And let's keep in mind that for adults, who can choose for themselves whether or not to take a certain medication, the benefits haven't been proven to outweigh the risks. (Sorry, I should clarify that. By benefits, I mean number of lives saved, not pharmaceutical profit margins.)

Please share this special e-Alert with friends and family members who have kids or grandkids. Let them know that this naked attempt to expand the market for statins by exploiting kids is baseless and misguided. Not to mention infuriating!

To Your Good Health,
Jenny Thompson

Subject: Wyeth's February 19, 2008 vaccine court case regarding thimerosal autism. Baltimore, Maryland.
Date: 06-18-2008
News Article

MADISON, N.J., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Wyeth (NYSE: WYE) announced today that The Honorable Stuart R. Berger of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City in Baltimore, Maryland, has granted Wyeth's motion for summary judgment in the case of Blackwell, et al. v. Sigma Aldrich, Inc., et al -- an alleged vaccine injury case claiming that Jamarr Blackwell's exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines caused him to become autistic.

Previously, the Court had granted Wyeth's motion to preclude all five of plaintiffs' expert witnesses from offering testimony at trial following extensive briefing and a 10-day evidentiary hearing held by the Court last August.

In his December 21, 2007 Memorandum and Order pertaining to Wyeth's evidentiary motion, Judge Berger found that "it is generally accepted in the relevant scientific community that thimerosal in vaccines does not cause or contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism," also noting that "it is generally accepted in the relevant scientific community that autism is genetic in origin except in rare instances of prenatal exposures to certain substances at defined periods during pregnancy."

"This is a significant victory for good science generally," says Daniel J. Thomasch, a partner at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, who served as lead counsel for Wyeth in this matter. "The Court appropriately found that plaintiffs' attempt to link autism to childhood vaccines is contrary to generally accepted science."

Large Population Mercury Test results


From: Bruce R. Dooley, M.D.
7 May, 2008

Hi Grace,
Thanks for passing along these articles. An update on my activities:

In February of 2007 and 2008, I spoke to a collective group of over 2,000 "healthy" individuals (aged 17-75) on the proven disease conditions manifesting from sub acute, chronic mercury exposure. This process is called mercurialism and is separate and distinct from acute mercury poisoning. I attach an article by Dr. Ely (PDF File - 595kb) et al and a partial list of these mental and physical states associated with mercury (MS-Word - 287kb). Dr. Ely's study on the common misinterpretation of urine mercury testing suggests that a much larger population may have significant tissue burden and calls for larger studies. As a result of the information provided to these conference attendees, we have now been able to collect oral DMPS - provoked urine mercury* results on over 1,000 North American individuals. These results were performed at the respected and independent CLEO lab, Doctor's Data. A sample of a very elevated (red zone) report is attached.

The outcomes of these two mass testings were astonishing to me and others familiar with mercury. Consistently we found that 75% of the group tested in the red zone or very elevated, and 20% in the elevated yellow zone. You can understand that when extrapolated to the entire population, the numbers are staggering. To my knowledge this is the first time this data has ever been produced and we are trying to grasp the health implications to the United States and other westernized populations. Many of these individuals have elected to begin therapy with oral MercOut 30-day program and our retesting has shown an average 68% reduction in tissue burden. WIth an understanding that the World Health Organization established mercury as an elemental poison with no known lower level of non-toxicity in humans, why are we not properly testing all of our patients for this metal?

Yours in health,

*DMPS - provoked urine mercury protocol: 500 mg DMPS with a 2-hour collection. We have tested various times for collection and found this to provide both the highest yield of Hg and compliance rate.

FDA Comment Period - Urgent
The FDA is reopening public comments on a rule first proposed in 2002 that would place precapsulated amalgam in Class II.


Dear IAOMT Members:

For your urgent attention: The FDA has announced that it is reopening public comments on a rule first proposed in 2002 that would place precapsulated amalgam in Class II, with "special controls." The rule was then 26 years overdue, since the FDA was mandated by Congress to make these classifications in 1976, and the special control proposed was, incredibly, a warning about exposure to zinc from amalgam! No action has been taken since.

Under intense lobbying by IAOMT, and under pressure from a lawsuit brought by our allies at Consumers for Dental Choice, the FDA has reopened public comments on ways to amend the rule for 90 days . Whether they are just bluffing again, or actually mean to bring the rule forward, it is imperative that every one of us, and all our friends, submit a comment, based on our own knowledge and experience. Amalgam should be placed in Class III, and the manufacturers forced to prove that it is safe, not in Class II, where old assumptions of its safety can live on.

Below is a letter from Charlie Brown of Consumers for Dental Choice, with talking points, and information on just how to submit your comment.


Dear Doctor:

Due to the deadlines imposed upon it by our lawsuit Moms Against Mercury et al, v. Von Eschenbach et al., the Food and Drug Administration has stopped stonewalling on mercury fillings. FDA has created a 90-day window to comment on how it should classify mercury fillings, and what special controls (restrictions on use) it should adopt.

Now is the time for all mercury-free dentists to comment. Whether FDA is making a feint to delay action once more, or whether FDA has had a real change of heart -- your comments are important. If the former, your comments help build a record to nail them in court later. If the latter, we educate FDA to take action.

Talking points:
  1. Ask FDA to put a total ban on mercury fillings --- or at least a ban for children 18 & under, for women of childbearing age, and for persons with kidney problems --- or at the very least, pregnant women, nursing mother, and children 18 and under. Tell them why, in your own words.

  2. Advise FDA that mercury fillings are completely unnecessary in 21st-century dentistry. This is quite important, that general dentists say that they can fill any cavity, big or small, in a child or adult, in an able-bodied or a disabled person, with alternatives like resin.

  3. An entire generation has grown up getting mercury implants solely because FDA refuses to do its job. No more delays, FDA --- this lawlessness must end.


You may comment three different ways:

    In category "Search," insert: FDA-2008-N-0163
    Follow instructions to submit comments.

PS--Doctor, be assured we are not letting up in pressure in the courtroom. On May 16, in Washington DC, I will argue for our motion for a preliminary injunction to take mercury fillings off the market until and unless FDA classifies it. PPS--Thank you! Call me if you have questi ons--202.544-6333

Report of Unethical Conduct        Top of Page
Date: September 17, 2009        Author: Peter J. VanDerSchaar

Report of Unethical Conduct

Recently, a member of IBCMT sent an advertisement to the newspapers that he had developed a revolutionary new concept of EDTA chelation therapy, which was equally effective, but was much less expensive and took less time. It turned out that the revolutionary concept only consisted of administering half the dosage of EDTA in less volume.

IBCMT is not against less EDTA per treatment, and leaves that to the judgement of the practitioner. However, this advertisement is considered to be misleading, not meeting ethical standards and is no more than a cheap advertisement trick to acquire more patients or lure away patients from other practices.

IBCMT did not get a satisfactory response from this physician, when interrogating him about his conduct and decided to put this issue to the Board. However, the physician concerned, already discontinued his IBCMT membership, relieving IBCMT from the task to take disciplinary actions.



Chelation        Top of Page
Date:        Author: Dr Hasnain Patel

Dear Dr Stephan Barret

I am a consultant cardiologist of 30 years standing. I underwent angioplasty with stenting that gave me relief for 20 odd days, following which I had crescendo angina. I then underwent 6 vessel bypass RIMA/LIMA which lasted for 3 years despite life style changes. My double vessel heart disease became generalized after the plasty!!

I then was advised redo bypass which I declined. I underwent 30 sittings of chelation and I have NO angina and my thallium is now normal.

I have only one question for you sir. Have you ever met, spoken to or have analyzed any patient who has undergone chelation? If you so desire I can show you over 100 patients of heart disease, angina, strokes and Parkinson as well as Autism that have benefited from chelation.

If we approach science with a closed mind, we might as well throw away our doctorates.

Vitamin C, Glutathione, or Lipoic Acid Did Not Decrease Brain or Kidney Mercury in Rats Exposed to Mercury Vapor

Authors: H. Vasken Aposhian, Daniel L. Morgan, H. L. Sam Queen, Richard M. Maiorino, and Mary M. Aposhian

Date: March 1, 2009




We have this problem that very few chelators pass the blood-brain-barrier.
D-Penicillamine does, EDTA doesn’t, but I don’t think DMSA or DMPS does.
This could explain the lack of effect on the brain but not the kidney for DMPS and DMSA.
Besides the treatment period is very very short.

I would assume that as the ALA and GSH show primarily biliary excretion, that this may explain why they did not reduce renal Hg compared to dmsa and dmps which do have renal excretion.
As for brain Hg; none of these agents is going to have any significant chelating effect from the brain. (alpha lipoic may conceivably have a slow minor effect here)
Any change to cns Hg from these is more likely to involve a significant time delay as they are more likely to be reducing non-cns Hg burden, leading to a slow mobilisation and redistribution of cns Hg over time.
Sos the time frame for this study was bound to show just these results.

Dear Dr.Vessa,
  1. Hg will induced oxidation or inflammation within many tissues due to the fluctation of valencies in the heavy metal.
  2. Vit C etc can dam down the such inflammation ie. antioxidation
  3. DMSA and EDTA are my choice to lower the Toxic metal level but the level may rise for a couple of weeks before going down due to pulling effects of the drugs on tissue Hg.
Hope the above points can help your understanding the backgroun of treatment, which you can learn from IBCMT or ACAM.
Good luck!
Dr. Francis Siu certified Member of IBCMT and ACAM from Hong Kong.



Dear Collegue,
In my opinion the best way to reduce mercury levels in the brain is to administer glutathion intravenously after intravenous injection with Lipostabil (phosphatidylcholine), according to the Patricia Kane protocol for neurological disorders.
Otherwise glutathion won't pass the Blood Brain Barrier.
The protocol includes Lipostabil, leucovorin, methylB12, sodiumphenylbutyric acid and Tationil-glutathion (1200-2400 mg).
Glutathion given orally is a big waste of money.

Dear Dr. Visser,
I have been involved with lots of patients with neurological involvement by mercury toxicity like the autistic kids.. This paper ‘s finding is true in the sense that the diffusion of mercury across the blood brain barrier is not easy by the administration of DMPS,DMSA, Vit C, Glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid. I have talked with Dr. Patricia Kane over the phone on the modalities of treatment in autistic months ago. She commented the use of chelators like DMSA., DMPS can cause damage by redistributing the mercury from different organs.
Her tactic is to use an intravenous preparation of Phosphatidylcholine (Lipostabil from Switzerland ) with intravenous Glutathione.
The Phosphatidyl choline can open up the blood brain barrier and allow the mercury to diffuse out of the brain.
I have tried on this tactic in my autistic patients and they did improve without adverse side effects ( a common side effect is regression of autistic ffeatures did occur with DMPD,DMSA treatment of autistic).
This article reinforced this belief.

Dr. Paul Lam
