Abstract
We at Toxics Link have compiled various studies highlighting “HEALTH EFFECTS OF DENTAL AMALGAM ON VULNERABLE POPULATION” and also information on “GLOBAL BANS ON USE OF MERCURY AMALGAM FOR VULNERABLE POPULATIONS”. We hope that this will help the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), and other stakeholders viz. Dental Council of India (DCI), Indian Dental Association (IDA), Dental Colleges, Clinicians and consumers to recognize the perils of continuing the usage of mercury amalgam, especially in vulnerable population. We would urge the MoHFW to give out a strong message by banning the use of mercury based fillings in vulnerable population.
