Mercury Wastewater Removal

Bravo for Dr. Marcus! He is being responsible about protecting the environment for the next generation.

Unfortunately 150,000 other dentists are not.
Let's do the math. He recycles 3 pounds of mercury a year. 3 X 150,000 = 450000 pounds or 225 tons of mercury are being discharged into the nations waste water annually. From there it goes into rivers and lakes or deposited on farms as fertilizer or in land fills to leach into the well water.

Dentistry with mercury is an environmental disaster.
