Hoodia And Phentermine-why Play Russian Roulette?

Jan 18, 2008
*Appetite Suppressant Pills - Are You Gambling with Them?*

How would you like to play a long game of Russian roulette? You know how it's played. In our little game we will just put 2 bullets in the gun, one a harmless blank and the other a leaded bullet, ready to do it's damage. Then we will spin the chamber, point it to our nose, and pull the trigger until it fires.

Now doesn't that sound fun. Now would anybody with a smidgen of smarts want to play this game? No they wouldn't, however, millions of intelligent people play this game with their diet pill choices.

These people buy diet pills (appetite suppressants) without even knowing what's, well, in the chamber. The results of this game of chance can be very explosive.

*Phentermine the Virtual Bullet*

Here is the Wikipedia definition of phentermine:

"It is approved as an appetite suppressant to help reduce weight in obese patients when used short-term and combined with exercise, diet, and behavioral modification. It is typically prescribed for individuals who are at increased medical risk because of their weight and works by helping to release certain chemicals in the brain that control appetite."

This stuff was first sold under the name of Fastin. Then, after problems started showing up in those using it, it was removed from the market (in 1998).

However, the pharmaceutical companies don't give up easy...it is currently sold as a Adipex-P, Ionamin, and a generic. The most recent "shame" company has combined phentermine with fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine and become known as Fen-Phen.

Now, in 1997, after 24 cases of heart valve problems in Fen-Phen users, fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine were voluntarily removed from the market. This was done at the request of the FDA. Findings later proved that nearly 30% of those who were using fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine had developed abnormal valves.

For some reason, the FDA did not ask manufacturers to remove phentermine from the market. I wonder why$. Oops, that should have been a question mark.

*Hoodia, the Safe Alternative*

Now we are talking about a product that does not affect the mental state, blood pressure or heart rate of the user. The Bushmen, who live in the desert regions of Southern Africa, have been using it for thousands of years to successfully suppress hunger in times of food shortage, and that without any side effects. It simply and safely fools the body into thinking that it's already had plenty to eat.

Now, when it comes to comparing hoodia and phentermine, there really is no comparison, is there? So what shall you do if you want to use an appetite suppressant? Just be wise in what you choose. And please do not forget that, for maximum weight loss success and better health, you must be sure to exercise and eat right.
