Ever since my diagnosis, I have been doing research on things that I might have done wrong to get cancer at such a young age. To my surprise everyday I find something new that could have caused colon cancer. There are several reasons I have come up with so far, like my high sugar diet, junk food addiction, bromide in the drinking water, Kuwait being the most polluted city etc. Today’s find is ‘mercury filling’ or Silver colored dental amalgam that possibly caused havoc in my body. Long back I was a big time coca-cola drinker because of which my tooth decayed so easily, so every year I’d get few fillings as if I was getting some silver ware, I even got myself a root canal. Though I have quit drinking coke many years now and haven’t got any new ‘fillings’ according to this CNN article my silver fillings (got 6 of them) are enough to send me to my grave sooner. What saddens me is even my wife has 6 silver fillings too, which makes us walking bio-hazards.
I got most of my fillings in Kuwait, I wonder if they are still doing silver amalgam while it is almost extinct in the US. If ever you have got your teeth filling done in Kuwait, you might wanna check it out.
