Why are most dietary supplements not evaluated by the FDA?
Is it difficult to scientifically determine if dietary supplements (such as St. John's Wort) help the body? Why do so many labels still say "This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease" even though the supplement has been used for decades or even centuries?
it is funny isn't it/one reason might be that a lot of the supplements ingredients are from real ingredients like willow for relieving fever,black cohosh for the dreadful hot flashes et al/and try as they might pharmaceuticals are prevented/thank all the powers that be/from using plants and natural ingredients and putting a patent on them...in other words they cant make money from it/weird but true
