My understamding is that too much zinc interferes with the bodiy's absorption of magnesium, and you'd have to be ODing on fixodent to get enough to cause harm, unless you are taking vitamin supplements or other meds with zinc.

It must be bad for everyone since they took cushion grip off market because it had zinc in it.

Oops! Sorry... my mistake. Annette. I apologize. I thought you said polygrip. I don't know that cushion grip even had zinc in it. Polygrip was pulled for a while and came back zinc free. Merk sold out to bayer and they decided to pull the plug on it.

I was using a zinc based fixative and i had terrible backache, so i stopped using it and my pain has gone, i have ordered an organic adhesive from America the reviews were good, so i thought i would try it.
