With the controversy surrounding this product, what do you think of it? It has helped alot of people including my self lose weight, but at the same time is killing people. There have been athletes who have died using this product, most recently Steve Bechler of the Baltimore Orioles. It even has been linked to Korey Stringers death a few years ago.
Right now there is a lawsuit against one company and they are trying to get it taken off of the market. It is put in some medicines for flus as well.
I used it to lose weight about 2 years ago. I lost 60 lbs. in about 2 months while taking it and doing the Atkins diet. At that time there was no speculations of death coming from it. If there were I wouldn't have taken it.
I for one think that if it causing people to die then it should be taken off the market. Maybe it can be a monitored drug by doctors only given through perscriptions and a good medical history for the patient.
