Caution - Some Dietary Supplements Contain Hidden Drugs

Things aren't always what they seem to be. The same goes for some dietary supplements. An estimated 150 million Americans use dietary supplements, ranging from multivitamins to herbal remedies to specialized mineral blends. So folks need to be careful about what they buy and who they buy it from, reports this Atlanta Journal Constitution article, "Dietary pills laced with drugs - After-market scrutiny: FDA warns about Blue Steel, other supplements that do not have to prove their safety." The government estimates that 30,000 to 40,000 supplement products are being sold by all sorts of companies, some large and reputable, others operating out of a garage or basement. This poses a challenge because regulators are spread too thin, and can only conduct occasional spot checks. Here are some resources that you can reference to try and protect yourself . . .
