I have a hard time believing that a cream could cause a death. Does the maker of the product have any responsibility in this girls death? Will this story make you think twice before using certain products now?

I was reading about that when it first came out. I don't know....there is something fishy about it. It doesn't seem like it would be possible to put too much of that stuff on. I have used something similar and never had a problem. I wonder if she had some underlying medical condition that may have made the reaction worse.

I doubt a simple cream could do any harm, but apparently this cream contained some bad ingredients. Apparently she used too much of it and poisoned herself. Thing is, I can't imagine that she bathed in it, so in a way the makers are responsible unless they had already placed a warning on the cream not to overuse it. Still, it must have been an incredibly strong cream. Either way it's a very sad story.

Yes it is very sad story. I hope the cream does have some kind of warning on it if not they better put one now.

I heard about this and could not believe it- How could a muscle cream kill someone- The report states that she either completly covered herself in it- Used it too much or too much of it got into her bloodstream- WOW-- Who would think a young healthy adult could die from muscle cream??
