The FDA recently announced plans to modernize and reform the regulation of dietary supplements, which are taken regularly by 3 of every 4 adults in the United States, according to the agency.
Since Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) 25 years ago, dietary supplements have grown from a $4 billion to $40 billion industry. Along with this growth come concerns about the marketing of potentially dangerous, adulterated, or misbranded products with unproven health benefits.
