“Here’s why you should join with us in Dental.Mercury Victims UK (DMVUK)”

Only by networking together we will have the power to make important things happen such as:
- gain government recognition of what has happened to us.
- gain legal recognition of the reality of the illnesses caused by dental amalgam.
- get compensation for the injuries caused to us.
- get practical changes in the NHS in consequence of the recognition of the problem.
- enable more research on the effects of amalgam illness and how best to treat it and deal with its after-effects.
- establish local support groups to help one another with treatment and recovery.
- gain public credibility for our understanding that dental mercury has genuinely harmed us rather than it just being a silly fantasy on our part.

To be effective in all this you need to join our cooperating network by making contact with us and enabling us to make contact with yourself in turn. It’s only by this linking up that we can achieve the power of a group.

There are already associations of dental mercury patients in Sweden and Spain. In the UK there are already some campaigning operations such as the website www.mercurymadness.org, the UK section of the International Academy of Oral Toxicology and Medicine (IAOMT), the association of dentists called the Society for Mercury-Free Dentistry, and some campaigning individuals such as Angela Kilbride and Pam Clayton.

However, none of these UK initiatives have sought to bring victims together to produce the required strength of numbers, to enable the empowerment that can only come from having people join together as members of a co-ordinated network. So it is not surprising that none of them has yet made the crucial breakthroughs, even though they have certainly done many useful things.

To achieve the various aims it is necessary that you at least join in our network so we can let you know what’s going on. We are just a group of friends and associates with shared concerns, in other words with no more legal red-tapery than you have with your own groups of friends.

It is important that you tell us whether you wish to have yourself added to our email news list, or our facebook group, and or whether you would prefer to be contacted by phone, snail-mail or whatever.

There’s no fee to join. The main thing in campaigning is not money so much as numbers of people involved. But if you are interested in donating some amount to help DMVUK achieve its ends please feel free to let us know.

And anyway be sure to make contact with us right now (before you forget!), by emailing your name and contact means etc to rpclarke(at)autismcauses.info. Or you could phone me on 0121 456 4274 (answers 4th ring). Or search for our group on Facebook and then join it. Or all of these things, the more the better!

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Robin Clarke
