Comments for FDA General
3. May FDA distinguish claims concerning conventional foods from those relating to dietary supplements, taking into account limits on claims that can be made about foods in the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act, 21 U.S.C. 301, 321, 337, 343, 371? What must an administrative record contain to sustain or deny claims on food labels? How can information best be presented in a succinct but non-misleading fashion? To what extent do assertions in claims need qualifications or disclaimers added to the label to avoid any misconceptions that consumers may draw? Is there a basis to believe that consumers approach claims about conventional foods and dietary supplements differently? As a consumer,and knowing that citrus foods contain vitamin C, which iknow to help my body fight off infections, if I felt I needed an occaisional increase of this vitamin in as natural and pure form as possible. I would appreciate a simple and uncomlpicated communication in the form of advertisment. I was given this body and choose to learn to protect and heal it in the ways it was naturally created to. I apperciate being able to find the suppliments that work best for me and to be able to share information with friends and loved ones.
