Here is My Question:
I have a person telling me that my silver fillings are what is causing my MS. They want me to go and have them all removed. It doesn't make sense to me, but I was hoping any of you might have some insight into this. Thank You
There is no data to suggest silver filling is associated with, let alone causes, multiple sclerosis. I would not suggest removing them unless there is an orthodontic reason to do so.
