What happened to Jack3d?

The FDA and the media have been at their little wheels again, spinning fairy tales and fables about how dangerous JACK3D was….

So much so, that the manufacturer, USPLabs, has called it quits and discontinued the product.

They released a “new formula”, sure.

It sucks.

Dammit.

So…. the tens of thousands of gym rats who used the product without a single side effect worth mentioning lose another effective supplement because some kid who was using it died.

They don’t know why he died exactly, or whether it had anything at all to do with the supplement, or even HOW MUCH HE TOOK of it.

He died, so BAN IT.

Uh huh.

The FDA says that an ingredient in the original formula, called DMAA, or 1,3 dimethylamylamine, is an unregistered, ” illegal dietary supplement “.

There’s no doubt it’s a stimulant, much like caffeine, but the TOTAL adverse event reports about DMAA, numbered less than a hundred, for a product that literally tens of thousands were using on a regular basis.

This over-reaction sounds more like the rumblings of the pharmaceutical companies not getting their cut than any concern for public safety.

I really think maybe we should be able to exercise personal choice in this kinda stuff.

We’re big boys… grown up and all..

Shouldn’t we have a say?
