    John nailed it!

    I was surprised when two of the senators asked the witnesses if they felt the FDA could be or should be doing more to regulate the supplement industry – it seemed only the FTC was willing to answer but pretty much side-lined the question. Bummer, it could have opened up discussions regarding DSHEA, although I realize much of the hearing was not only about weight loss product claims, rather the advertising problems.

    I’m still questioning however, why a senator would think Oz should be in any position to create a list (to eventually be placed in a health database) of reputable supplement companies.
