WHO considers mercury as one of the top ten chemicals of major health concern, which threatens the environment and health of millions. Mercury is known to be one of the most toxic substances on the planet more toxic than arsenic, lead and cadmium. The interconnectedness of dentistry, the environment and public health as a whole and the link between environment and health as well as the role of environment in the development and spread of disease must be understood.

Once the clinician understands the immense pressures placed on public health by pollutants of all types, and begins to relate these environmental contaminations with actual disease states, the more likely they are to become good environmental stewards, taking pro-active steps to protect human health by protecting the environment.
