[AMRadio] More on "Electromagnetic Allergies"

Hi Steve...

The cause of people hearing radio transmissions in their heads has been 
traced to old school tooth fillings that used an amalgam of metals 
(sometimes Mercury), that, with the saline (conductive) mixture of saliva, 
produced a non-linear detector, similar to the detector in a crystal set... 
or the germanium diode used in present day crystal sets.  By the way, this 
only works to detect AM transmissions, not TV (vestigial sideband) or FM 
(Frequency Modulation)...

New-School dental fillings do not contain materials, but are composed of 
fast-setting epoxies, resins, and other non-conductors...

Personally, I've had the older style fillings replaced by the newer types... 
and I'm nearly 75 years old, so there were many old-style fillings in this 
old noggin...
