Supplements get congressional scrutiny, again

Many of us have seen articles like the on US News dot com. Every so often a few of the manufacturers of supplements think they are going to be able to bypass the rules and make outrageous claims for their product by saying they are the latest cure for this or that disease. They make their quick profits and then withdraw their advertising when caught and continue to reap profits from bad products.

Are you surprised that the supplements manufacturers that many of us find necessary for good health as people with diabetes are part of this – well don't be. Most are now manufactured in China. This does not mean that the products are bad. What we need to be careful of is some of the herbal supplements that are not as well quality controlled as they must be.

Read this article carefully and express your views (pro or con) to your senators and representatives.
