This is my first rant, because I, a person who doesn't watch ads if I can help it, just saw an ad for something called "Biotene" with the catchphrase
"For people that suffer from dry mouth." They don't say what Biotene is, but slather the ad with biotene packages dripping water and looking like
they're soaking in water.
All a dry mouth means is that you need water! It's one of the signs of dehydration. Your mouth dries up because other systems of the body need what
little water you put into it, and distribute it to your heart and brain first. Sore muscles occur the same way, you don't have enough water in you,
and the body takes what it has and moves it from non-life threatening areas to areas which need to stay hydrated. So a cramp in a muscle is telling
you, drink water.
So what is Biotene??? Is this like Head-On, the weird drug sold a few years ago for restless leg syndrome (I don't know for sure, but maybe that's
dehydration too. So much is.) which nobody I ever met knew what it was. Does anyone here know what that stuff was too??
Most to blame for not telling people to just drink water if you have a dry mouth (duh) are the tv networks which take these kinds of ads, which allow
something like Biotine to be offered on the public airwaves. That certainly is the bottom line.
