US Army investigating supps after 2 possible DMAA related deaths.

The United States Army is investigating whether certain dietary supplements for athletes, available until recently at stores on military bases in the United States, may have played a role in the deaths of two soldiers.

Last summer, a 22-year-old soldier collapsed at an Army base in the Southwest during a training run with his unit. Last fall, a 32-year-old soldier at the same base also collapsed after taking a physical fitness test. DMAA was identified in both soldiers’ toxicology reports, the Army spokesman said, but he declined to identify them.

DMAA doesn't kill people...

People taking stimulants to push past the limit of their physical ability (or being forced to by stupid army training people) kills people...

Does the US army still provide amphetamines to soldiers "in times of need"?
