A national poll by the respected Zogby polling firm shows that the mercury cover-up by the American Dental Association and the Food and Drug Administration continues.
Fully three in four voters could not name the major component of amalgam. When told, though, three in four would pay more to get a non-mercury filling. Over 90% believe dentists should be required to tell patients about the mercury and about non-toxic alternatives. And by 7 to 1, the public wants a ban on mercury fillings.
