Class Action Lawsuit April 24, 2001

Mechinisms Documented by Which Mercury from Amalgam
Dental Fillings and Vaccinations Are a Cause or Major
Factor in Over 40 Chronic Health Conditions;

Class Action
Suits for Damages Expected to Total in the Billions of
Dollars Announced in Washington, D.C.

A coalition of doctors, dentists, lawyers, health
advocates, and environmentalists are releasing
information on April 24th in Washington DC, documenting
that millions of people have been adversely affected by
mercury in dental fillings and vaccinations. Lawyers are
announcing class action lawsuits expected to involve
billions of dollars in adverse effects and comparable to
tobacco.

Research including over 1000 peer-reviewed or government
studies has been accumulated from the medical literature
documenting the mechanism by which mercury causes over 40
chronic health conditions including:

(a) periodontal diseases such as gingivitis, oral lichen
planus, amalgam tattoos, metal mouth, halitosis, oral
keratosis(pre cancer);

(b) immune system conditions such as allergies asthma,
multiple chemical sensitivities, eczema, psoriasis, other
skin conditions; cancer(breast,etc./
leukemia),susceptibility to infections, antibiotic
resistant infection, sinus problems

autoimmune problems such as arthritis, MS, Lou Gehrig's
Disease(ALS), Parkinson's/ muscle tremor, Alzheimer's,
muscular & joint pain /fibromyalgia, chron's disease,
lupus, scleroderma, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(CFS),
endometriosis , diabetes

(d) neurological and mood disorders including memory
disorders, depression , schizophrenia , insomnia, anger,
anxiety & mental confusion, neuropathy/paresthesia,
tinnitus, dizziness/vertigo,headaches/ migraines, epilepsy, ADD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, hearing loss, etc.

(e) cardiovascular conditions including tachycardia,
angina, arteriosclerosis, other heart conditions,
hypertension, and other blood conditions

(f) hormonal problems such as hypothyroidism, adrenal
problems, chronic chills, Hashimoto's Disease,
alopecia/hair loss, urinary/ prostrate problems,

(g) reproductive problems such as infertility, reduced
sperm counts, PMS, spontaneous abortions, birth defects,
children with learning disabilities and low IQ, etc.

(h) chronic eye conditions: inflammation/iritis/
astigmatism/myopia /cataracts/macula degeneration , color
blindedness, vision disturbances, etc.

(i) stomach/digestive problems including leaky gut,
malabsorption of essential minerals and essential fatty
acids, blocked cellular enzymatic processes related to
the ATPASE energy function and sulfur oxidation.

There are extensive documented cases (many thousands)
where removal of amalgam fillings led to cure or
significant improvement of these serious health problems.
Over 60,000 such clinical cases are compiled in the
documentation as followed and compiled by doctors. The
over 60,000 cases of cure or significant improvements
were not isolated cases of cures; the clinical studies
indicated a large majority of most such type cases
treated showed significant improvement.

Mercury's extreme cytotoxicity and neurotoxicity is a
major factor in the neurological conditions, along with
its inhibition of basic enzymatic cellular processes and
effects on essential minerals and nutrients in cells.
Mercury is also documented to cause imbalances in
neurotransmitters related to mood disorders. A direct
mechanism involving mercury's inhibition of cellular
enzymatic processes by binding with the hydroxyl
radical(SH) in amino acids appears to be a major part of
the connection to allergic/immune reactive conditions
such as autism, schizophrenia, lupus, eczema and
psoriasis, scleroderma, and allergies. Immune reactivity
to mercury has been documented by immune reactivity tests
to be a major factor in many of the autoimmune conditions.

The over 1000 peer reviewed studies mostly either
Government studies or abstracted in the National Library
of Medicine(www.nlm.nih.gov/) document that most people
with several amalgam dental fillings get significant
daily exposure to mercury that is the largest source of
mercury exposure for most people and often above the
Government health guideline for mercury. The reason for
the high exposure levels from amalgam are mercury's
negative vapor pressure that means it is constantly
vaporizing, along with galvanic electric currents caused
by mixed metals in the mouth that drive mercury and other
metals into the body. These are easily measured which has
been widely documented.

The studies also document that mercury from amalgam or
other sources such as fish crosses a woman's placenta
readily and accumulates to levels in the fetus at levels
usually higher than in the mother. And that mercury in
the mother is transfered at significant levels to a
brestfeeding infant. The fact that children have been
exposed to levels of highly toxic mercury thimerosal in
vaccinations well beyond Government health guidelines for
mercury is also well documented. Studies document that
such mercury exposures can cause developmental conditions
and disorders such as autism, ADD, learning disabilities,
etc.

The referenced medical studies also document the
mechanism by which mercury from amalgam or vaccines cause
the above listed conditions, and over 60,000 clinical
cases of amalgam replacement that resulted in significant
improvement or cure of the above listed conditions.

The studies also document that due to the high daily
exposure from amalgam people excrete high amounts of
mercury into home and office sewers which cause levels in
sewer plants to be high enough to contaminate with
mercury most of the water bodies they empty into to the
extent that fish and wildlife are contaminated with
dangerous levels of mercury. Over 20% of the lakes,
all Great lakes, 7% of U.S. river miles, and many
bays are contaminated to the extent warnings have been
issued to not eat the fish. Amalgam is documented to be a
major source of mercury in many water bodies.
