There are so many "legal" drugs that have far worse effects on people than DMAA could ever dream about. That hogwash from the poster who said it hasn't gone through the FDA obviously doesn't know how the FDA works. It's basically a giant pay off scheme to get product legalized. Why do you think things like MSG and aspartame and opiates are still legal? Big Pharma and Big Food spend a lot of their profitgs making sure that they stay that way. Big Pharma manipulates their studies so they can pass their product. Eli Lily got in trouble for this a few years back only because it was painfully obvious. Even dangerous drugs don't get pulled unless there is a SEVERE outcry. Or better yet, a couple of doctors looking to clear their conscience from peddling their wares look to have it banned. A lot of people are almost more screwed up GOING to the "trusted" doctor. I am personally not the biggest DMAA fan, I just think it sets a bad precedent. At the same time, some of the lowly and unscrupulous supplement companies need to stop f*cking it up for the rest of us and putting drugs and who knows what else in their products.
