Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I don't beleive we should try to add warning labels to any more suppliments than we absolutely have to. There have been many more instances of health problems with prescription drugs than there has been with dietary suppliments. I do think the Ephendrine warnings are somewhat justified but do not think that it should be taken off the market. I ask one question. How many people have been harmed by ephedra vs. phen-phen????? We could add many other drugs to that comparison also. What will be next, vitamn c causes cancer. That one was already in the press. Please do not let the drug lobby terrorize our industry any more than they already have.
