MERCURY UNDERSTATES DANGER
2011 Oct 14 from Dr. Paul Genung, DDS
The rhetoric in the article regarding handling broken
light bulbs that contain mercury, is balderdash! Having
studied mercury carefully for over a quarter of a
century and as part of my commitment to
"Health-Conscious Dentistry", I can assure you that,
although the advice given in the article "sounds
carefully thought out", it is totally inadequate.
I recall you carrying an article a year or two ago
relating the story of a woman who broke one of these
while trying to change the light bulb on the ceiling of
her daughter's bedroom. She contacted several
"environmental clean-up companies", and according to the
article, the minimum bid for the job was $2000! She
ended up taping shut the doorways to the room to
"protect" against the mercury spill! I can guarantee you
that such an effort has minimal effect. Mercury has the
property of passing right through the glass walls of a
vessel that it is being "contained" in (see my website
--- www.toothwisdom.info ---
go to photos. A picture is worth a thousand words).
There really is no good way to contain mercury unless it
is chemically bound. A plastic bag won't contain the
mercury. Sweeping it up will not protect you --- it's
just not quite as harmful as the vacuum cleaner
It is very difficult to detoxify the human body from
mercury poisoning. It is an insidious poison. It is used
in over ten thousand manufactured products. However, far
and away the most common human exposure to mercury is
common dental fillings, thanks to my "enlightened"
profession! The exposure from this source exceeds all
other sources combined!
When the Roman Legions captured enemy soldiers in
battle, often these POWs were sent to the Cinnabar Mines
in Spain (cinnabar is the ore form which mercury is
derrived). The average life span of these happless
souls, once they started working in the Cinnabar Mines,
was 3 years! Remember, these were men at the peak of
their physical prowess ------- late teens and early
twenties --- so half of them died before 3 years. The
best and safest way to deal with these light bulbs is
NOT to buy them!
