Hi Joel,

Dangerous? For whom?

Oh yes, there is.  And you just mentioned a few yourself:
(probably without being aware that it was against dental amalgam)

You said:   Klemann D, et al.
                Effects of amalgam fillings on the mercury
                concentrations in amniotic fluid and breast milk.
                Dtsch Zahnarztl Z. 1990 Mar;45(3):142-5. German.

and what about this one:

Conclusion:
"The results indicated that there was an efficient transfer of inorganic
 mercury from blood to milk and that, in this population, mercury
 from amalgam fillings was the main source of mercury in milk"
                                                             Oskarsson A, et al.
          Total and inorganic mercury in breast milk in relation to
           fish consumption and amalgam in lactating women.

That's a difficult one to deny, Joel.
