Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I know many people who have lost weight with an ephedra based product. The weight loss SAVED their life! They took the product responsibly and that is the key to any OTC or prescription product! Education on taking products properly is the answer, not banning the products. The media has distorted the facts and it appears that there are only a couple of deaths directly linked to ephedra. How many deaths are directly linked to alcohol?? Please consider the benefits of weight loss to an individual compared to the handful of consumers who abuse ephedra and give it a bad name.
