Abstract: Not many clinicians in the UK will have missed the publicity surrounding the Minamata Agreement, which was signed by the UK and over one hundred countries from all over the world in October 2013. This was a far reaching agreement to limit the use of mercury from all sources, including LED light bulbs, fluorescent tubes, fertilisers, thermometers and, of course, dental amalgam.
