Writing a thesis on the Swedish controversy over dental amalgam cn mercury poisoning in the 1980's and -90's.
My doctoral research concerns the Swedish controversy on dental materials and health in science, politic and the media during the 1980's and-90's. I study how the issue of the so called oral galvanism arose in the late 1970's, how it transformed into a ontorversy about dental amalgam and mercury poisoning in the early 1980's, and how this controversy came to unfold through different actors and in different arenas.Close
