we need help in getting the word out on this extremely important issue of zinc poisoning and denture creams. We think there are tens and tens of thousands of victims who continue to unknowingly poison themselves everyday with their denture cream.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 22, 2009
The US Drug Watchdog is advancing a very aggressive national campaign at identifying and informing US denture cream users about possible issues related to the denture creams called Super Poligrip and/or Fixodent. The potential issue with these denture cream products has to do with zinc levels that could cause zinc poisoning, and a neurological condition called neuropathy (source: American Academy of Neurology). So why is this such a big deal? According to the group, "this is a big deal because there are 35,000,000 US denture cream users, and potential zinc poisoning could severely damage your nervous system." The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "if a Super Poligrip or Fixodent user has noticed, numbness or tingling in the feet, legs, hands and/or arms; a reduction in strength or ability to move legs or feet, or arms and hands; unexplained pain in the extremities; a tendency to stumble or fall down; instability and lack of balance; or a change or decrease in walking stride, they should contact our group immediately." For more information consumers can contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at Http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
So Why Is This Such A Big Deal?
According to the US Drug Watchdog, "thirty five million US citizens use denture creams. That is 8.5% of all Americans. Our fear is that tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of US citizens may now be suffering from zinc poisoning because they use a denture cream, and not even realize they are being poisoned." The group is saying, "this is a super big deal, and we want to hear from any denture cream user that has the medical conditions we have described. We are also praying that friends or family members of denture cream users will share this press release with anyone who uses a denture cream."
