Default FDA approved?

Has anyone heard that the FDA has approved an over the counter "diet Pill"? It is supposed to be launched this spring. I think it is called Allee or Allie or something. I caught the tale end of the segment on a local chanel. It is supposed to block the fat from being absorbed. What caught my attention was that is was FDA approved.

It is the OTC version of orlistat which is Xenical. So instead of needing a doctor's prescription, you should be able to buy it without a prescription sometime in the near future.

You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.

The FDA.. blah.. Im scared when they do approve something. Lets see.. a drug that is lab grown is approved but Vitamins cant be.. hmmm.. oh yeah.. thats right, because you can patent something that grows naturally.. silly me.. sorry.. lol I have beef with the FDA
