      There was a pretty big article in the paper recently where many
      people who use denture cream develop sometimes sever neuropathy.

      Apparently the cream has zinc in it. those who suffered the neuropathies
      were using a tube per week or two, rather than the suggested tube over four to six weeks. their bodies were taking in too much zinc. the damage tended
      to be somewhat permanent with some improvments when stopping but not a drastic improvement. FYI–tim–

      I was taking zinc supplements for ages!

      But i guess the zinc in question is Zn, the heavy metal and not a compound of zinc?
