Goes to show you what kind of misinformed dip****s we have leading the mainstream endeavor to make america Un-fat.
taken from an email forwarded to me.
If you've ever cruised the diet-supplement counter, chances are you're familiar with ephedrine. Until recently this ingredient was common in products promising to help you lose weight and curb hunger. It never proved to make good on those claims, and it was pulled from shelves after the herb was linked to heart palpitations and cardiac arrest, even in those with healthy hearts!
While the ban has helped, experts say too many people continue to take ephedrine tablets they bought before the ban or have since obtained illegally through the Internet! Don't be one of them! Please, check the labels and toss any ephedrine pills you may have hanging around the house.
As I've said before-I don't advocate any so-called weight-loss supplements. Such pills are expensive, misleading, and unproven. Stick to the tried and true recipe for weight loss-cutting calories and increasing your burn with exercise, instead. It's a confirmed winner!
Ephedrine is EVIL EVIL!!!
but wait....ephedrine is not an herb.......
