Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments You at the FDA, How did you recieve your jobs? Banning Sports supplements isnt the answer...there are no stupid answers...just supid people. I have used creatine, ephedra products for 20 years now. They work and are not deadly, unless people can't read. There are warning products all over the labels, If someone takes an ephedre based product and exceeds 100mg a day and disregard warning...tell me is that the fault of the product? certainly not. Why dont you ban sleeping pills??? If you take too many you can die..yet its over the counter. Far more people die from pharmacy drugs per year than any supplement MFG. Ephederine taken in recommended doses is actually stimulating the heart and helps with arteries, regulates metabolism also. Wait a minute so does caffeine..oh well looks like pepsi and coca cola are next.
