Even patients with amalgam dental fillings have just half the World Health Organisation's maximum acceptable daily intake of mercury, according to evidence presented to the Freiburg regional dental association in Germany (Arzte Zeitung). Munich professor Stefan Halbach says daily mercury intake due to amalgam fillings is 2-10 micro g, depending on the number of fillings. A further 5-10 micro g is taken in from food. The WHO's maximum acceptable intake is 40 micro g per day.
