I find the article on our Scienceagogo front page..dated the 6th Oct:, just a few days ago.
Seems to support the fact that Zinc has been found to be a requirement for good Neuron and Memory communication in the working of our Brains.
Read about it on SAGG's front page now.

And yet here is another article which states that a number of Companys have just removed Zinc from their Denture Glues, and Toothpastes because excess Zinc has been shown to cause Neurological problems, as well as blood Anaemia problems, and loss of balance, etc.

Well so much for Zinc. The above is for your info only.

and I just bought a bottle of zinc.

I wonder if breathing in the fumes from zinc being melted to pour in a mold would present any dangers.

Zinc is not absorbed in the mouth but enters the body when swallowed.

Darwinian theory if you ask me ... don't tell them.

I believe in "Evil, Bad, Ungodly fantasy science and maths", so I am undoubtedly wrong to you.

When in Mental Health work I came across a man who was showing quite advanced signs of pre-senile dementure. He started taking zinc regularly, and within a few months the symptoms had subsided very markedly. Up to the time I lost contact with him, some 18 months later, the improvement was maintained. M H colleagues said "coincidence", and they may have been right.


There never was nothing.
