Ephedra Education Council
The Ephedra Education Council (EEC) is a PR group funded by the dietary supplement industry. Its main spokesperson, quoted as a "legal counsel" or "attorney" in news stories, is Wes Seigner. This group defends the safety and efficacy of the weight-loss drug ephedra and pushes to keep it legal.
The EEC's website is no longer available as of November 1, 2004, but archived versions can be found by searching the Internet Archive; cut & paste "http://www.ephedrafacts.com/" into the "Take Me Back" field.
