Here we go again, a few idiots ruining it for everyone. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20031230/ap_on_he_me/ephedra My thoughts : Naturally occuring ephedra, such as in Ma Hung, is a wonderful decongestant, to be used for allergies and colds. This is where Pseudophedrine comes from. Except that the herbs containing ephedra also contain other valuable alkaloids that exert a synergistic effect of the human body, bestowing other health benefits as well. So now a few idiots abuse this substance for their own selfish purposes, hurt themselves and we all have to pay. My feeling is people should educate themselves this is not the resposibility of our government.
