Like anything that actually works, it will either be made a prescription or banned all together. Everything else will be sold over the counter at your local GNC. My guess is that some teenager with the thought of "more must be better" is probably to blame for this unfortunate event.

But lets think about this. It's well known that alcohol can cause far more liver damage and is responsible for hundreds of deaths *EACH YEAR* from liver failure - but do we ban that? No - It's politics that is taking this great supplement off the market. After 10 years of using it, I personally have never had any problems with the supplement - but anything in excess can certainly be a bad thing.
