Problems with Dietary Supplement Manufacturers Widespread – 7/1/12

ChicagoTribune The Chicago Tribune reports that problems with dietary supplements are widespread.

“In the last four years, theU.S. Food and Drug Administrationhas found violations of manufacturing rules in half of the nearly 450 dietary supplement firms it has inspected, according to agency officials.”

“It’s downright scary,” said Daniel Fabricant, head of the FDA’s Division of Dietary Supplement Programs. “At least half of industry is failing on its face.”

Great.  Most supplements are not only unnecessary, but they’re poorly manufactured and controlled, too.

I wonder if and when people are going to wake up to the fact that they’ve been getting fleeced for all these years.

DR. RAMEY NOTES:  Does anybody think it’s any better for horses?  Heck, even if the products are manufactured properly (who knows?), they aren’t manufactured according to any apparent standard.  CLICK HERE to read about the study that I presented in 2011 at the AAEP Meeting in San Antonio, TX.
