Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments Ephedra has been available and used for over 5,000 years. Ephedrine is a manmade concentrated substance and as such poses a health risk. This is the product that needs careful attention, not the herb Ephedra. Let us understand clearly that it is not the herb used properly creating health risks, rather it is the manmade concentrated substance used unwisely that is the health risk. Let us not legislate away the individual choice of health care and products used.
