This is a major story.. Hydroxycut is widely used. But is it all versions of the supplement or just specific ones (eg Hydroxycut Hardcore)?

Who would of guessed that a product that promotes weight loss would be harmful to ones health. Isn't this always the story?

ATTENTION people, natural weight loss through a sensible diet AND excercise is the only healthy alternative! In the gym - push ups....at the food trough - push aways. Simple success.
Smaller portions, healthy choices and and a moderate excercise regimine...you're all set! With no ill effects to your LIVER!

But a guy in medical school who pretends to be a doctor in the commercials recommends it!

“Thank you, come again!”

The 0.05 pt Font fine print at the bottom of the screen clearly shows that he's not a doctor.

You were 18 and took diet pills? What the heck, exercise and healthy food is the only diet for a young body!

The FDA is a joke.

If you want your product on the market sooner, you just "fast track" the research by paying the FDA millions more.

It's much more safe for people to eat themselves to death. Doesn't require FDA approval either.

Would the FDA approve cheesecake or blood sausage?

The FDA just solved the unemployment problem for lawyers. The ambulance chasers will be advertising on TV for Hydroxycut lawsuits for the next couple of years.

Snake Oil. Take a look at cable TV at 3 a.m.- nothing but snake oil.

The one I really like is the one that makes that "certain part of the male anatomy" bigger. Yeh right.

But they enjoy a nice catch-22. Nobody would ever admit it didn't work, would they?
