I lift weights, and a few years back I would drink a bottle of Ripped Force before and during my workouts. It contained Ephedra, and it did make a significant difference in my workouts. Even though the injuries related to ephedra use seemed to stem from overuse of the product, I discontinued its use. I don't see any more of a problem with Google Ads promoting the selling of the product any more than their ads being used to peddle Vicodin or any other prescription drug which is both popular and addictive. Google still allows Americans to circumvent a doctor's visit and order any variety of prescription pain killers or sleep aids from Canada, India or Europe. If you're going to block one type of ad, block them all, because people are essentially obtaining drugs that they more than likely wouldn't be prescribed, or at least not in the amounts that they are able to purchase them.
