Mercury linked to Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, and Stroke

Mercury linked to Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, and Stroke


Your silver-mercury fillings have now been linked to coronary heart disease (CHD), myocardial infarction (MI), hypertension, cerebrovascular accidents (CVA), generalized atherosclerosis, irregular heart rate, kidney problems, sudden death, and total mortality.


Silver-mercury fillings are the most common source of elemental mercury vapor and the major source of human exposure to organic mercury. This mercury is the most dangerous of all heavy metals. The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that silver-mercury fillings are the primary source of exposure to mercury in humans, greatly exceeding all other sources in the general population.


This mercury enters the body and attaches itself to enzymes and amino acids that you need to be healthy and survive. This mercury reduces your immune system defenses and increases your oxidative stress, increasing your risk for CVD and CVA. Selenium and fish containing omega-3 fatty acids reduce mercury-related CVD and CVA by binding with the mercury and making it less toxic.


The overall vascular effects of mercury include oxidative stress, inflammation, blood vessel abnormalities, immune system damage, and cell and organ failures. All of these abnormalities have the potential to increase the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. If you have a history of these or other vascular diseases and an exposure to mercury, then you should be evaluated for mercury toxicity. Specific testing for acute and chronic mercury toxicity and total body burden using hair, toenail, urine, stool and serum samples should be performed. The 24-hour urine measurements should be done with baseline and provoked samples. (Houston Mark C. MD, MS. “Role of Mercury Toxicity in Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease, and Stroke” Journal Clinical Hypertension, vol.113, no. 8, August 2011, 621-626)


This new research paper carefully evaluates and summaries the cardiovascular consequences of mercury toxicity in humans.


If you or a loved one has a history of exposure to mercury and a history of heart disease, then get evaluated by a physician familiar with mercury poisoning. Contact our office for referrals to a holistic physician.


Call our office if you are interested in having your present silver-mercury fillings removed safely and replaced with safer alternatives. I invite your comments and questions to this newly documented research on the toxicity of mercury in humans.
