Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments It is to my understanding and belief that if someone has the ability to choose what they can and cannot take in the form of supplementation. If someone abuses Aspirin, do we look to ban it? Why not completely ban tobacco? This seems to me like wasted time, money and energy on the wrong topic. I would suggest NOT putting a blanket ban on something a few people abused. Haven't the Chinese been taking Ephedra for decades? Why is this an issue now?
