    I am concerned about this product's potential contribution to producing a tumor in the thymus gland. This tumor is associated to myasthenia gravis, which is an auto-immune disease.

    I just started taking alli a week ago and so far I love it, I track my food and fat intake religiously, and work out 5 days a week.

I have to say I would NOT HAVE LOST the weight without the help of Alli. I have been trying for years with ... Show Full Comment

Especially if you are addicted to sweets, fried foods, salty foods, bad white carbs and candy like myself. I've tried every diet out there along with exercise with very little results except for Alli. I was diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease two years ago. Fatty Liver Disease is a ... Show Full Comment
