  1. Typographical error in abstract

    Daniel Dutton, University of Calgary

    3 December 2013

    It recently came to my attention that the abstract of this manuscript has a typographical error.  The first sentence in the Discussion section says "Our estimates indicate that an individual with seven or more dental amalgam surfaces has 30% to 50% higher urinary mercury levels than an individual without amalgams."

    In order to match the numbers reported in the document (which are correct), this sentence should read: "Our estimates indicate that an individual with seven or more dental amalgam surfaces has 30% to 65% higher urinary mercury levels than an individual without amalgams."

    As corresponding author, I feel I have to apologize for any confusion this caused. I thank readers who pointed this out to me.
