People often think of supplements as "safe." But new evidence shows supplements lead to about 23,000 ED visits every year...and over 2000 hospital admissions.
This isn't surprising since FDA doesn't regulate supplements like Rx drugs. It doesn't require testing for efficacy and safety...or require proof of quality before marketing.
