Dr. Bruce Fowler – How safe are vitamin supplements

Last week Fellow member, Dr Bruce, talked again on toxic elements. This time he talked about how toxic elements (arsenic, lead, mercury, and cadmium) get into dietary supplements from foreign countries ( China, India, and others) and how hard it is for the US Government to regulate and detect the introduction of these toxic elements. The problem is that foreign countries use waste water sewage sludge as fertilizer and the dietary supplement ingredients may come from a third country. The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) directed FDA to promote good manufacturing practices, truthful labels, and (after) adverse event reporting. An active Q&A followed Bruce’s talk.
