Oh, by the way... Mercury Is Highly Toxic!
If, as a child, you told me that you
wanted to place a filling containing mercury in my mouth,
I would have kindly told you that some
mercury is bound to leak out over time, and that would be
'really bad for my health'.
This is a very
controversial subject, and I suspect it will be for some
Several of my
friends and relatives who are aware of my experience in this
area have asked their dentists or doctors for their opinions on
this subject. Reactions ranged from frustrated
One dentist very recently told a relative of mine
that the whole subject about the mercury leaking from "silver"
fillings and becoming harmful to people's health is "complete
hogwash"! Another dentist objected by hollering
at the top of his lungs at a friend of mine right in his
office. All other responses have been somewhere in between.
Say, "I Don't Know"
I believe and
attempt to practice a very important principle. If you don't
know the answer to a question, say "I
don't know". Don't pretend to know. Don't
repeat what you've heard from your friends who might or might
not know. Don't react emotionally. Just say those three beautiful,
honest, integerity-filled words... "I
Pride Can Kill
This principle is especially true
for doctors. People generally respect doctors. Many
people believe nearly anything doctors say. If a doctor is
asked about things they really don't know anything about, they should
tell the truth and say, "I
don't know". If they fail to abide by this simple principle,
they can kill someone. I
believe it happens every day!
It takes a "big"
person to say "I don't know". Unfortunately, there
is much too much pride in
the way of these humble words. This lack of humility, I fear, has
caused the death of more people
than have died in some wars.
For me, having
suffered, recovered, and been victim of the grim truth of
human pride, I can only hope people will stop
blindly accepting words that are contrary
to common sense.
I hope people will get
to know themselves well enough to learn vital truths about
others. By looking squarely at yourself, you may gain a deeper
understanding of human nature and further realize that, the
epidemic of human pride transcends
position, "job title", and image.
For this reason,
whether speaking to a friend about the latest hot stock, a president
about his moral conduct,
or a doctor about heavy metal poisoning, you must always be
aware of the pride that so dangerously colors the truth.
