    Yep, it's still the material of choice for brake pads due to its resistance to overheating. It's frightening how governments ignore health hazards from products like this when there is profit involved. How many of you have silver/mercury fillings? I do, and I've read some frightening stuff about how these cause slow mercury poisoning but the ADA won't admit it or change their policy. I've even heard that they withhold licenses of dental practices that question the use of mercury.

    Mercury fillings: I don't think there's any harm to it. Mercury in it's elementary form is harmful but not when it is mixed as it is in fillings. We need H2O to survive. But if we drank H2O2 (peroxide) it would probably make us sick though I've never tried it.

    Asbestos brake linings: North Vancouver, where I live, is basically on the side of a mountain. So there are alot of sloped roads. During rush hour traffic, the smell of brake particules fills the air.

    Yes, H2O2 is toxic to the human body; similar to O3 which is toxic, while we need O2 to survive. Molecules made of the same elements can have totally different chemical and biological properties.

    But what about the mercury ions? HMM? The ions! Well, seriously, through the average wear and tear on your fillings there is going to be mercury released into your system. Many people have had this and have supposedly not suffered any consequences. And getting them removed would just increase the amount of mercury absorbed. Basically, if there is mercury in something, that is not going to change how harmful it is just because it is mixed with something else. And a mercury amalgam is just mercury mixed with any other metal! Usually silver I believe.
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    You get more mercury into your system by eating one can of tuna or one tuna pizza per year.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Hey, I never said that the levels of mercury in fillings were anything to be worried about

    That's an interesting fact about the tuna though. But tuna pizza? Eck! LOL
