Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments The rush to bann dietary supplements containing Ephedrine alkaloids is rediculous, illogical, and potentially hazzardous to the health and well-being of many. To conclude that Ephedrine Alkaloids are harmful to human beings based upon the high-profile misuse by an insignificantly small number of individuals, despite the evidence of positive, healthy results from tens of millions over many years is just plain stupid. Bann automobiles, because in the hands of some, motorized vehicles become a major threat to our safety, well-being, and our lives themselves. Bann coffee and other caffeinated beverages (a.k.a. Coca-Cola) because of the dangers of caffeine. Or look at the facts, as responsibly accumulated and assembled by competent authority. Ephedrine Alkaloids, in the right dosage and used according to instruction, have been helping human beings to a better quality of life without harmful side effects for thousands of years. Check the record! Don't just fly off at the uninformed allegations of headline hogs!
