AHA applauds move to ban ephedra .....
The Food and Drug Administration’s decision to prohibit the sale of supplements containing ephedra marks a victory for American consumers’ health and safety. The ban was announced Dec. 30. “We are pleased with the FDA’s decision to ban these dietary supplements from stores’ shelves,” said American Heart Association President Augustus O. Grant, M.D., Ph.D. “It sends a clear message to consumers either using or considering the use of these products, who may be unaware of the potential risks. While they may believe they are doing something good for their health, in truth they could be putting themselves at serious risk.”
