Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments It appears as though the FDA is attempting to ban all Ephedrine HCL and products containing Ephedra and it'a alkaloids. I have used these products for years with no side effects, only benefits. The adverse health claims made by the FDA and the media concerning these products is nothing but negative hype which is nowhere near reality. These products are beneficial when used in an educated manner by free citizens of this country. Of course, the over-consumption of any drug/dietary supplement can be dangerous. I believe that Aspirin would have a difficult time obtaining FDA approval at this stage of the game due to the overdose potential. I urge the FDA to take no further action against Ephedrine and preserve the freedom of the American people to choose for their own health.
