The FDA has warned users of weight loss drug Hydroxycut to stop taking the popular weight-loss product because of risk of severe liver damage.

The FDA is officially in the “Britney Spears Zone” for just about everyone. If they accidentally approved heroin capsules tomorrow, the New York Times and the Washington Post’s editorial sections would light up for a week. Then it would be back to business as usual and nothing would change.
