Was Ephedra the Actual Cause of Sudden Cardiac Death?

Summary:


A common plaintiff theme is that ephedrine is chemically similar to
recognized dangerous drugs like cocaine and amphetamine. These 3D
structures were prepared to illustrate the differences much better than
traditional 2D structure drawings.

Ephedra-based litigation that attempts to tie the use of dietary supplements containing ephedrine to a variety of health problems is increasing. In this case, the plaintiff alleged that his non-fatal incident of Sudden Cardiac Death after a day of recreation in a hot climate was caused by his ingestion of defendant’s product despite any clear medical evidence in support of his claim.
