Zinc poisoning is truly detrimental to the body causing illness from which some patients never recover. Douglas & London, a leading New York denture cream law firm, can help.
New York, New York –Approximately 35 million people use denture adhesives such as Super PoliGrip and Fixodent to hold dentures in place for an extended period of time. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lists products such as these “low-risk”, making denture creams exempt from listing their ingredients.
One of the main — and often unknown– ingredients of denture cream is the heavy metal zinc. Several studies have shown that ingestion of excess zinc though the use of denture cream depletes the body’s copper levels. This could and does cause serious health risks, including neurological deficits and physical injuries.
Zinc poisoning is truly detrimental to the body causing illness from which some patients never recover. It can lead to anemia; bone marrow failure; peripheral neuropathy; incontinence; poor balance and lack of coordination; tingling, numbness, and burning sensations; as well as other injuries and symptoms.
