Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I am an avid user and distributor of ephedra based products. I have been using the weight loss product BioLean for the past year with tremendous results. I think putting a ban on ephedra based products would be a huge mistake. If people took the time to read the warning labels and used these products the way they are suppose to be used there would not be a controversy. The BioLean product has less than half the 100mg the FDA says is safe and has been marketed for ten years without incident. I think we need to look at more serious issues like cigarettes, and alcohol. These cost the lives of way more people than ephedra ever will. Someone who smokes is not only killing themselves but others around them thanks to second hand smoke. Someone who has been drinking and gets behind the wheel of a car puts more than just themselves in danger. People need to start taking responsibility for there actions. People should consult a physician before using any over the counter drug. If they don't, then what ever the outcome is, is because of their stupidity for not taking resposibility. I am completely against this ephedra ban and think it should be stopped. That is my opinion.
