www.Fixodent-Zinc-Lawsuit.com

We just learned of this today from a commercial warning about this. I figured this may be the perfect spot to post this.

They also mentioned something else, but the Fixodent caught our attention since DH has used it for several years now.

We have the toll free number to call if anyone is interested in following up on this.

You're right. The commercial also talked about Poli-Grip. Just wondering if anyone is contacting them to see what it's all about. We were supposed to get a return phone call today, but it didn't happen yet.

Yes, very small amounts of zinc are good for you. But too much of it is horrible for your health. It robs your body of other minerals that you need. We're just following up on this now, but it appears that this has even put people into wheelchairs.

As long as you just take your one vitamin a day and no zinc supplements, you should be fine. (Disclaimer~I have no medical degree. In fact, I didn't even do well in high school biology. )

Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants .Fixodent product is used to attach dentures to an individual’s gums. An ABC News investigation has led to a <a title="Nerve damage might be caused by Fixodent" href="http://www.newsytype.com/4067-fixodent-lawsuit/"> Fixodent legal action</a>.. The legal action is situated on the allegation that Fixodent might be poisoning customers. The secondary allegation is the business didn't warn consumers.
