[MOL] Illegal Dietary Supplements Linked To Serious Toxicity



Some additional concerns to be alerted to. AS a suggestion, when buying
foods or drugs, its always best to read the labels. Just a ward of
caution.

WESTPORT, Feb 26 (Reuters Health) - Physicians and consumers are
alerted to the potential for serious toxicity associated with
illegally marketed dietary supplements containing gamma-
butyrolactone (GBL), in the February 26th issue of Morbidity and
Mortality Weekly Report.  Federal officials describe seven cases
of GBL toxicity requiring emergency room treatment at two
hospitals in Minnesota between October and December of 1998.  All
seven instances involved a product marketed under the name of
"Revivarant".
