I believe that supplements, vitamins and minerals are not drugs, and do not need to be subjected to extensive testing before they hit the marketplace. I feel that it is also up to the consumer to educate him or herself about nutrition, and to become knowledgeable and responsible for his or her own health care. Choice of products or services needs to be available to all consumers. Please consider that supplements are more closely related to foods and to natural substances found in the human body than are pharmaceuticals.
