The Richardson Report  April 18th, 1995

When the Richardson report was released by Health Canada in August 18, 1995 it created quite a stir. It was the first time that such a comprehensive review of the peer-reviewed literature had been carried out with the view of assessing dental amalgams using conventional risk assessment techniques and methodology. These techniques and methods were exactly the same as those used in doing risk assessment of any other chemicals or toxins in our environment.

The Canadian Dental Association's attempt to discredit the Richardson report.

By the time the Richardson report was released by Health Canada it had been peer reviewed by 16 seperate reviewers expert in this field. Subsequent to this report's publication in the scientific literature a further 3 peer reviewers assessed it, making a total of 19 seperate assessments. ALL concluded that the work was valid, legitimate and of value, a view endorsed, and publicly acknowledged, by Health Canada in its letter to Dr. Mark Richardson. Virtually the only opposition has come from the various dental associations. The overall lack of merit in their opposition, their ignorance, the lack of expertise of their reviewers and the lack of ethics in their misrepresentation on the amalgam issue is shown in the following documents on this site..
