More oversight of dietary products recommended by studyEven though half of all American adults make use of dietary supplements such as diet pills, vitamin pills, energy drinks, and herbs, the FDA doesn’t have enough authority for ensuring that the products are safe. A recently released government audit has suggested that the FDA should seek more oversight power.

Though the FDA has taken some steps for supervising the supplement industry more closely, those steps have not gone far enough as per a new report from the Federal Government Accountability Office.

It is worthwhile to note here that the market for dietary supplements is growing in the United States, which is evident from the fact that Americans spent an estimated $25 billion on such products in 2008 as compared to $23.7 billion in 2007 according to Nutrition Business Journal, which covers the industry.

More oversight of dietary products urged by studyAccording to a government audit, more than half of all adults in the United States, or at least 14 million people, make use of dietary supplements like herbs, diet pills, vitamin pills, and energy drinks.

But the FDA doesn’t have enough control to ensure that these products are safe and more oversight power is required to put things in the right place.

The new report from the Federal Government Accountability Office acknowledged that the FDA had indeed taken some steps in the past few years for supervising the supplement industry more closely, but those steps didn’t go far enough.
