The New York Times recently reported that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “warned 12 sellers of dietary supplements to stop claiming their products can cure diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s to cancer to diabetes.” The article further state that “the agency’s commissioner, suggested that Congress strengthen the F.D.A.’s authority over an estimated $40 billion industry, which sells as many as 80,000 kinds of powders and pills with little federal scrutiny. These products range from benign substances like vitamin C or fish oil to more risky mineral, herbal and botanical concoctions that can be fatal.” The FDA was “particularly concerned about supplements that purport to cure diseases for which consumers should seek medical attention.”
