Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments My name is J.Francisco Quiroz, I am a Medical Doictor,certified by the American Board Of Family Medicine and Holistic Medicine. You Know we have a very big problem which i obesity, people eat too much, do not exercise and there is no effective medication that can help. (perhaps all the All you can eat Restaurants need to be eliminated) For the last ten years Wellness International Network has marketed and distributed BIOLEAN which has ephedra, helping many people to feel hapier, loose fat and becoming healthier with no a single significant negative effect, I have personally used it for 5 years having nothing but excellent results,many of my frieds,patients and family members have used it with excellent results. (perhaps you must identify the good products so we continue helping people vs taking all of the market)I hope this is no matter of who is making the money selling ephedra? I do not understand why few negative incidents, not clearly attributed to ephedra makes too much escrutiny, when we have millions of affected people due to alcohol and nicotine and you do not do anything about taking them off the market, that would be very smart! We would save a lots of lives and mpney. Every single day people die of obesity related medical conditions, creating billions of expenses.Why a herb that is already proven to be effective and safe in helping people loose FAT when using it in a responsable way should be taking off, I would say It needs to be better controlled, Our product Biolean has a very small amount of ephedra, because is the combination of all the ingridients that make it so effective and not only one ,like most of the others. Our product Biolean is currently in a reaserch study by Hopkins University as an natural altrnative fat loss product. I think taking aphedra off the market i a very big mistake.
