    Ephedra Ban Lifted????

    Judge Strikes Down FDA Ban on Ephedra


    By MARK THIESSEN, Associated Press Writer

    SALT LAKE CITY - A federal judge Thursday struck down the FDA ban on ephedra, the once-popular weight-loss aid that was yanked from the market after it was linked to dozens of deaths.


    The judge ruled in favor of a Utah company that challenged the Food and Drug Administration's ban. Utah-based Nutraceutical claimed in its lawsuit that ephedra "has been safely consumed" for hundreds of years.


    Supplements that included ephedra have been widely used for weight loss and bodybuilding, but have linked to 155 deaths, including that of Baltimore Orioles pitching prospect Steve Bechler. The FDA ordered the substance off the market in April 2004.


    Judge Tena Campbell's ruling sends the matter back to the FDA "for further rulemaking consistent with the court's opinion" and keeps the agency from enforcement action against the companies.


    FDA officials did not immediately return a call seeking comment.


    Company president Bruce Hough said the decision is about "protecting the public's access to safe and effective dietary supplements."

    i was wondering the same thing when i went to my gas station and saw it, at first i thought there was a catch. Then i went to another gas station in another town a few weeks later and saw more up close that it actually was ephedrine. I think i even saw the real mini-thins. I am gonna go pick some of those bastards up. Sweet
