I get letters from the health alliance. The latest letter claims that the weight loss drug Alli is being investigated for liver damage. However I saw LEF promoting it as an advertisement in the monthly magazine.
Here's a quote:
Glaxo’s Alli (also known as Orlistat) is not however anybody’s idea of the perfect drug. First it doesn’t reduce weight much. Then there are the side effects.
Oily stools and flatulence are offputting enough (Glaxo even suggested that first-time users of Alli wear dark pants or bring a change of clothes to work until they get used to the diet pill’s unpleasant consequences!). Of greater health concern is the vitamin deficiency it causes. Moreover, it is now being investigated for causing liver damage—this, after going through the FDA’s drug approval process!
Here's the link.
Is this a safe product?

|I dont like Alli.|
Problem is carbs, NOT fat. Take Optimized Irvingia for example or go on a low carb diet.
