Supplement Safety Now
Dangerous drugs, such as designer steroids, are intentionally being sold as dietary supplements, and current law allows these products to get easily to market. Supplement Safety Now, a public protection initiative, is a nationwide effort to protect Americans whose health is threatened by the consumption of dangerous over-the-counter products disguised as "healthy" supplements.
Our mission is to urge Congress to establish a regulatory framework that ensures all supplements sold over-the-counter, in retail stores and online, are safe and effective. And, that the federal agencies regulating this industry have the tools to effectively protect consumers' health. We invite you to join our efforts and take action now.
