The FDA needs to be able to enforce the standards they create for dietary supplements. I saw a Senator giving a floor speech on CSPAN last week about how the FDA has tried to outlaw certain supplements that have killed a lot of people and led to a lot of illness, but they are unable to effectively ban them. These same supplements have already been banned in Canada, but are still being sold her over the counter and in military supply stores to active duty servicepeople. I think this matter should get more attention.
