"My friend recently started taking Ipecac syrup after she eats something that she thinks is too fattening, so that she won't have to "keep" the calories in her body. I'm worried about her, but when I tell her my concerns, she says they wouldn't sell it over the counter if it was really all that dangerous. Is she right?"
