Autoimmune diseases: They can be caused by the fillings in your teeth, leading dentist warns
Autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s could be caused by toxic dental materials such as the mercury used in fillings, a leading dentist believes.
Dr Hal Huggins, of Colorado, USA, argues that dental materials such as mercury, and the newer high-copper amalgam, leak into our systems and bind onto a cell membrane.
Once this happens, the cell is seen as alien and so is destroyed by our immune system. If the cell is a nerve cell, MS may result; if it instead binds to a hormone, the result may be Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or diabetes, he argues.
