Actually he is not shilling for any companies.
Fly by night companies are using his name without his permission. He has talked about this problem repeatedly. He also did a long segment on his show here he showed up on the property of one of the companies looking for the executive.
This is true. He researches everything
he touts on his show.
This is how ephedra was declared illegal in the USA.
Scheisters peddling it making claiming and using it out of its scope of practice.
Real herbalists never misused it, but now we cannot use it at all, because assholes put it in a weight loss supplement, and killed people
As best I can recall, ephedra was blamed for two deaths. In one case it was an overweight baseball pitcher trying to lose weight. He wrapped himself in some kind of plastic sweat gear and overheated in a dehydrated state.
A well known pathologist looked at the case and said there was not near enough ephedra to kill the pitcher. IOW, ephedra didn't kill him. He cooked himself to death in 95 degree heat.
The other case was a high school football player who might have taken an entire bottle of the stuff. If we are to take things off the market because some people will overdose like that, then aspirin needs to be pulled off right now.
Pray for me.
Your prayers have worked like crazy. Maybe one of these days I won't have any behavior issues.
