Dr. David Minkoff Reveals Hidden Source of Mercury Contamination
Dr. David Minkoff MD reveals a hidden source of mercury contamination as serious as mercury toxic fish and silver/mercury amalgam dental fillings during Aspects of Achieving Optimum Health seminar series.

“Mercury is a by-product of a coal-burning plant. Coal burning energy plants sends tons of mercury into the atmosphere on an annual basis. It travels on the breeze and anyone around the plant or downwind will breathe it,” explains Dr. David Minkoff in his talk on heavy metal exposures. “Mercury emissions from China can reach Los Angeles within a week and pollute the air and waterways. To give a comparison, one silver/mercury amalgam filling contains about 500 mg of mercury. If that amount was in a 10-acre lake, the EPA would put a ‘do not eat the fish advisory’ warning people not to eat the fish from that lake.”
Visitors to beautiful Clearwater Beach may not realize that within 30 miles, both north and south, coal burning energy plants are exhaling their mercury bi product on a daily basis. It’s in the air they breathe.
It has become common knowledge that one can become mercury toxic from fish or fillings, but it is not well known that one can become mercury toxic from the air one breathes.
Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity from mercury can include lack of energy, tremors, cloudy or fuzzy thinking, anxiety, autoimmune disease and cancer. For more information about mercury toxicity you can visit http://www.epa.gov/

Dr. David Minkoff also currently devotes most of his time to writing and research when he’s not training for his next Ironman race. The book he is writing, “How To Live To 120 and Feel Like 35,” explores the difference between chronological age and biological age and explains the steps one can take to lengthen his/her lifespan while retaining feelings of youth, energy, vitality, and health in his/her body. The book is intended to be a handbook for the body. For more information about Dr. David Minkoff and to read more of his work visit http://www.drminkoff.com.
