  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I also had composite resin bonding put on two back molars 3 years ago , because I was afraid of receding gums. I have since learned that these may contain forms of bisphenol-A, which leaches into the mouth is toxic. I wonder what is causing my accelerated aging. Is it chronic low-level inflammation from the dental bonding, which leads to thyroid problems? Or is it toxic build-up of this doxylamine succhinate in my body? or both? And what should I do--have the bonding removed, or try to detoxify only, using foods and herbs?
