Good ol' silver fillings- Are they safe?

The ongoing controversy continues.... Are silver fillings safe? If you're not familiar with the subject, let me fill you in.

Amalgam (silver) fillings contain Mercury, a substance that can be harmful or even fatal to the human body in large quantities. Some say it's safe, some say it isn't. It hasn't been proven, either way.

Take a look at the following articles discussing the pro's and con's of Amalgam fillings, breif description included:

PRO'S- The ADA supports the idea that amalgam fillings are completely safe!

CON'S- Amalgam fillings contain 50% Mercury!

So, what do you think? ARE amalgam fillings safe?
