FDA Supplement Guidance Not Strict Enough, MD Says

This is pretty controversial stuff, as the dietary supplement industry largely opposes the draft regulation

Medical News: FDA Supplement Guidance Not Strict Enough, MD Says - in Public Health and Policy, FDA General from MedPage Today:

"An FDA proposal to require dietary supplement manufacturers to submit data proving their product is safe doesn't go far enough, according to a physician writing in the New England Journal of Medicine.  
More than 100 million Americans spend more than $28 billion on vitamins, minerals, herbal ingredients, amino acids and other natural products in the form of dietary supplements each year, "assuming they are both safe and effective," wrote Pieter A. Cohen, MD, of Harvard Medical School and the Cambridge Health Alliance. 
But they have no assurance that the products are safe because FDA regulation of supplements is too weak, Cohen wrote in a Perspective piece."
