Ironmaiden NSAIDs have millions of users not just hundreds of thousands and there is legitimate research to back NSAIDs up as doing what they are supposed to do!
Ok even if you had equal amounts of users between diet pills and nsaids you would still have a larger number of deaths from the prescription drugs that's the only thing I am trying to argue here. I don't give a $h1t how legit they are in comparison to diet pills.
Not to mentin a lot of people who take NSAIDs are on death's door already, not healthy young people trying to lose weight, the number of Cancer patients on NSAIDs is staggering, it would only take a few incorrect 'cause fo death's' to up the number of deaths attributed to NSAIDs by a huge amount. NSAIDs are primarily used for pain relief not false weightloss promises, it's like comparing apples and chihuahua's!
So you are assuming that the 16500 deaths and 103,000 hospital visits attributed to adverse effects from the use of NSAIDS are incorrect? They just happen to be on NSAIDS when they coincidentally had a myocardial infarction even though there is a direct link between its use and an increased risk. That's quite a bit of error
To make a comment on 'false weightloss promises'... they do work. They are an AID
, that is it. People who do are severly out of shape and have no knowledge of exercise/nutrition shouldn't be taking these pills. Not the fault of the makers.
I think these 'weightloss' pills should be banned anyway, the makers only seek to increase their own profits by praying on the feeble minded and those at their wits end with being fat! It's like buying the AB Ripper 2000 (or whatever other junk is on infomercials these days) and expecting that 5 minutes 3 times a week will get you totally buff like the models they show on the ads! It's just dumb!
Ban weightloss pills because they create capital for the producers and prey on the 'feeble minded?' You can argue that about ANYTHING we buy as consumers including what's churned out by the drug industry. Big difference between fatloss pills and gimicky exercise machines, that is a 'apples to chihuahua's' comparison.
