In his lively debut, health and medical journalist Hurley takes aim at the $21 billion supplement industry and its potentially injurious "natural" products. Hurley maintains that the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 is one of the worst laws on the books. Shielding vitamins and herbal concoctions from FDA testing, it requires only that no curative claims be made for such "dietary supplements." If you think that "herbal" weight loss products are all safe, think again. Hurley targets the scam artists who sold billions of dollars of adulterated pills to make a buck, and left many people dead or permanently ill for the rest of their lives. The Chinese herbal products for weight-loss are especially dangerous.
