PRLog - April 9, 2012 - BOSTON -- A new website, EphedrineWhereToBuy.com, is live and offers objective and reliable information about ephedrine by medical experts, not vendors.
"The alarming rise of overweight and obesity in the USA and the fact that no miracle pill will come from the pharmaceutical industry in the next ten years led to the creation of this website" says Mike Budd, founder of EphedrineWhereToBuy.com. "A plant without patent rights could have been a solution, but it has been banned by the FDA after a controversial debate. With a group of doctors, we decided to gather our experience in order to provide objective information about ephedrine, not the official position nor the point of view of vendors."
Before the FDA ban, ephedrine was used by more than 12 million Americans for weight loss. Overweight and obesity have now reached an epidemic level in the USA (34% of adults and 17% of children) with direct medical costs close to $147 billion annually and indirect costs estimated by McKinsey at more than $450 billion. The legal status of ephedrine is confusing: it has been banned for weight loss but not as a traditional herbal medicine, nor as asthma treatment. Ephedrine is sold online under various names, and in real shops it can be bought in convenience stores or pharmacies, over or behind the counter. Recent bills approved in some states will restrict sales of ephedrine but are very unpopular because people will need a prescription for their cold or allergy treatment.
"The problem is that ephedrine is a precursor of methamphetamine. Currently the rising number of meth labs is urging politicians to react. The legal quantity of ephedrine purchased per month will be reduced from 9 grams to 7,5 grams. Meth cooks must be desperate", says Budd. "Will it stop the production of methamphetamine in the country? Not sure", Budd adds, "and in the same time obesity is becoming a national health priority. This is exactly the goal of our website, EphedrineWhereToBuy.com, which is to give unbiased information coming from experts, not vendors nor politicians, with a global view on this issue."
