I was 11 years old by the time I had all 10 of my Amalgams fitted, where they remained for the next 26 years. My mother also had Amalgam fillings when she was pregnant with me. I truly believe that those Amalgams negatively affected my growth processes during my developmental stage (and adolescence), and I think they began contributing to my battle with Candida even at that early age.... I was taking Antibiotics back then, too... The research is more sketchy about pregnant mothers passing on mercury to their fetuses, but it seems logical to me that any mercury floating around in the mother's bloodstream would easily and readily travel right down the umbilical cord, you know?
Anyway, you didn't miss the argument! Feel free to jump right in and give us YOUR two bits!! Ha!
