FDA Warning Against Botox

FDA Warning: Think Before You Botox

A while back, remember how Botox injections were approved to help with excessive sweating? Well you may want to put a hold on using Botox for anything, because the FDA has issued a warning against Botox, since 16 deaths have been reportedly caused by it.

In case you didn't know it, Botox is made from the botulinum toxin, and it's often injected into the face to relax muscles and make wrinkles disappear. In rare instances the toxin can spread to other parts of the body, causing the muscles used for breathing and swallowing to weaken and become paralyzed, potentially proving fatal.

If you're thinking about getting Botox injections for cosmetic reasons, talk to your doctor about the FDA warnings. If I were you, I'd learn to embrace my old age since it's undeniably better than dying trying to stop it.
