Cracking Down on Supplements At Last?

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 14:04

A glimmer of hope over at SBM. The DSHEA, the deadly child of a couple of lame-brained Senators, may be getting a much-needed patch thanks to another Senator not normally known for his deep thinking.

Last week, I learned that yet another effort is being made to strengthen the DSHEA and close some of its loopholes. This effort comes in the form of a law under consideration, the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010. It is a law proposed by, of all legislators, John McCain.

I’ll say it again here for the search engines to find: Orrin Hatch is an idiot. Of course, Tom Harkin is a moron, but our expectations are naturally set a bit lower for Democrats.

Meanwhile, here’s your Buttle’s World health tip for the day: If a product says “Supplement” on it anywhere, don’t buy it. You don’t need it, and it may well harm you. Especially if it’s made in Utah.
