(UPDATE: Special thanks to Consumers for Dental Choice for their invaluable partnership on this issue over the years. We failed to properly acknowledge them when this was first posted).
When will the FDA fulfill their responsibility for dental mercury?
“We will by the end of the year, we will make an announcement.”
Silver Spring, MD – So said Jeff Shuren, Director of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
When did he say this? Earlier this year? Last year???
Nope. He said this on September 22, 2011.
So why has there been no action on dental mercury?
