BadScience.net on Mercury Fillings

A pointed look at press coverage of fears about mercury fillings in the UK.  I saw a story or two about the results of the first controlled study (which found no ill effects from mercury in dental fillings), in contrast to Goldacre, but certainly not much. 

He's also got an interesting take on early coverage of a forthcoming study about "electrosensitivity."
