That is the title to the feature article in the most recent Bottom Line’s Health In Action.
We have talked about it here many times and will be again at our Event on the 28th.
Here is some of what that article said:
“About one out of every four supplements sold in the US does not contain what is listed on the label or has other quality problems, according to tests performed by ConsumerLab.com”
The Labels are Not Accurate
“…last year, an investigation into the store-brand supplements of the biggest national retailers – Walmart, Target, GNC and Walgreens-found that man of thither products did not contain the herbs listed on their labels…others included ingredients that were not listed on their labels, some of which were potential allergens.”
“And the problem goes way beyond the the four big retailers above.”
“RISK: THE SUPPLEMENT IS CONTAMINATED WITH HEAVY METALS-SUCH AS LEAD, ARSENIC, AND CADMIUM-OR WITH TOXINS.”
“…because the industry at large goes unregulated, be sure to purchase only professional-grade vitamins and supplements that have undergone testing and quality assurance from a reputable supplier.”
Again, we have talked about it here literally hundreds of times, and will again next week, but the bottom line, really, is that you need to be careful who you trust. This and other articles may be part of an agenda to bring supplements under the control of the Government and the medical establishment: do you really want to trust them? They haven’t demonstrated themselves to be too trustworthy in my view. Further in the magazine there is another article talking about what supplements you should be taking. The whole idea that you should buy and take individual vitamins or minerals is close to 40 years behind the times: you need whole food and whole food supplements if you want to give your body nutrition in a way that it’s been used to dealing with for a million years. The idea that people who create vitamin & mineral formulas are smarter and know better and can second guess the body hasn’t panned out too well.
